We at Eyewords are making a difference by reducing barriers to literacy skills in a fun and engaging way. Confidence building is nurtured through positive learning experiences that lead students to recognize the growth in their own abilities. With a strong foundation in universal design, we understand the importance of evidence-based methods to increase student achievement, not just for some but for ALL.
Eyewords™ was created by a multidisciplinary team of educators in collaboration with children of different ages and abilities, speech and language pathologists, researchers, and designers to address a need to differentiate reading instruction for ALL learners.
Our fundamental belief is that ALL children are capable learners when teaching to their strengths. With the understanding that students learn best when their senses are active and engaged, we made it our mission to boost fundamental literacy skills in a fun and inclusive way.
Eyewords™ materials and methodology were the focus of iterative, quantitative research conducted by an independent team of researchers from Stanford University. The published research has validated that for sight word acquisition, the multisensory method of combining an embedded picture, contextual phrase, and related kinesthetic action with phonics is more effective than plain text words with phonics instruction alone. This new discovery opens up a world of opportunities to effectively remove learning barriers to sight reading the high frequency words and propelling learners to reading fluency and comprehension.

What should parents of children with learning needs be aware of when looking into this curriculum?
You will need to pull together some objects or materials to play the games, but all the materials are easy to find household items.
