Check out netsmartz.org with your child. Lots of great discussions from these fun and educational videos on internet safety.

NetSmartz Mission:
NetSmartz Workshop is an interactive, educational program of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children® (NCMEC) that provides age-appropriate resources to help teach children how to be safer on- and offline. The program is designed for children ages 5-17, parents and guardians, educators, and law enforcement. With resources such as videos, games, activity cards, and presentations, NetSmartz entertains while it educates.

Our Goals

Educate children on how to recognize potential Internet risks

Engage children and adults in a two-way conversation about on- and offline risks

Empower children to help prevent themselves from being exploited and to report victimization to a trusted adult

Mariasara,

If you have a child who has dyslexia (or simply struggles with reading), you may be interested in these independent articles re: how to treat dyslexia using a “bottom-up”, neuroscientific approach with Fast ForWord. Take a look:

Remediation Training Improves Reading Ability of Dyslexic Children – Reading Rockets

Dyslexia and the Brain: Research Shows that Reading Ability Can be Improved – Cornell University

Undoing Dyslexia via Video Games – American Psychological Association

Understanding the Causes of Dyslexia for Effective Intervention – Edutopia

It’s dyslexia awareness month – but many still are misinformed about this multi-faceted condition. We hope these articles help to explain the underlying reasons why so many children struggle with reading, and how these issues can be remediated.

If you are curious as to whether your child would benefit from Fast ForWord, simply reply so we can discuss. I hope you found this information helpful!
