Reading is a difficult process. The brain must be doing several things at once in order to make sense out of the written word. Many things can go wrong when a person is learning to read. Those who struggle with reading will ultimately directly or indirectly struggle with life.
The Pocket Learner is a particularly useful intervention learning tool for word building, sentence construction, guided or independent learning. It is therefore well positioned to serve as the ideal platform for developing reading skill.
It is very easy to measure progress using the Pocket Learner and so be able to ascertain distance travelled. When a child who previously used only pictures to communicate or who had to point at what they wanted is then able to look at a written word and is able to read or sign it, for example: the word “Milk” or “Toilet” it is both a joyous and a powerful moment and can be a serious game changer in the lives of all stakeholders connected to that child.
