About this game

The Word Heroes are a learning tool for dyslexic and low-achieving children, as well as beginning readers, making challenging reading exercises a breeze. The child learns by playing: together with the three Word heroes, the child fights the evil monsters of the Forest and cleanses the forest of the black magic.
The word heroes are developed by the company Progression Park in close cooperation with dyslexic children and subject matter experts. We believe in creating a level playing field for children's social and professional development.

A RESEARCH-BASED DIGITAL TEACHER
Each Word Hero represents a reading strategy from PHAST (known as WAKS in Denmark), developed by Canadian professor Maureen Lovett, based on her internationally recognized research. By working with the Word Heroes, the children practice reading strategies that are proven effective when writing and reading difficult and unfamiliar words themselves.

The sound master (strategy sounding out) is tight to the sounds of the vowels, and works with both single vocals and vocals as part of a word. With the Sound Master, the child becomes good at training both sound to letter and letter to sound.

The rhyme (rhyming strategy) has a special eye for the rhyming parts of the words - for example in the words 'man', 'sand' and 'tooth' the rhyming part is 'and'. Together with the word hero, the child is trained to recognize and use the rhymes in the meeting with similar words, such as 'bucket'.

The vowel detective (strategy vowel alert) can keep track of all the vocals even if they change sound. In some words, such as 'horse', 'e' sounds like 'æ', which can cause great problems for the blind. With the Vocal Detective, the child trains to recognize and spell these words correctly.

FEATURES:
A fresh start through motivational game mechanics that make it fun to read and spell.

The teaching material contains 34 missions and more than 2200 words, spoken by a professional actor.

The teaching material is dynamically structured so that children, parents and educators can choose which strategy, type of words and consequently difficulty is worked on.
 
Clear progression in relation to the child's abilities and progress through the missions.

Notebook where it is possible to see the latest errors for each of the 3 word heroes / strategies
