Online Games FAQ

Will the games play on my device?

How do I get the codes?

We live in an area that doesn't get the internet. Can we still use these programs?

 

Will the games play on my device?

All our online games will run on any browser that supports HTML5 (such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge, and IE). Run this HTML5 support validator to check your browser.  We don't recommend you use a phone for playing the games, since the screen may be too small. Instead, we recommend tablets, laptops and desk top computers. Important: your browser's cookies must be enabled, and your browser must support local memory (see "Storage" in the HTML5 Validator Report). Your browser will also require a certain amount of local memory to run the apps. Click here to read more about local storage. We cannot guarantee that your device will work with our games. Note that these games are not necessary for our Orton-Gillingham reading programs, they are available only for a fun way to reinforce material.

How do I get the codes?

To find the code (a randomly chosen word from the reading program lesson/workbook) open the web app for your program (click here). For the Blast Off to Reading app, touch one of the game icons; you will then be taken to the activations page. For the I Can Fly app, when first opening the app, you will be taken to a page where you can select to enter in the codes or select ten minutes of free play. Once the app takes you to the activation page, you will be given instructions on where to find the code in your workbook to enter into the text box. Note that it is our policy not to give out codes in any manner (email, text or phone) - you will need your book.

For example, if you are using Blast Off to Reading ®, you may see "Enter the word at Exercise 45.3 #2" (note that the codes are randomly chosen and this is just an example).  You should then go to that exercise and enter the word from #2.  If you are using a tablet (such as an iPad), we recommend that you open the app in the web browser, save it to your home screen, and then enter the code. This is to ensure that your code will be stored in the correct memory area. 

Note that you will only have to enter the code in once, and it will be saved in your device's memory. If you erase your browser data or delete the game from your device's homepage, all memory saved will be deleted. This data includes: access codes as well as all saved screens and rewards that may have been saved.

We live in an area that doesn't get the internet. Can we still use these programs?

Absolutely. In fact, the online games and tools were created a few years after the programs were published and in use. You can purchase flash cards for Blast Off to Reading! ® and A Workbook for Dyslexics; the same deck can be used for both programs, or you can make your own with index cards. We also sell physical games and have free printables available for you to make your own.
