Letter Olympics - For B/D Reversals
Grades Kindergarten-2, Inclusion, switch accessible, Win/Mac

Young learners and students with dyslexia alike will love taking the sporting challenges while working on b and d reversals. Activities cover recognition, discrimination, and differentiation for lower case letters b and d, with full auditory and visual instructions emphasizing accurate sound pronunciation of the b and d phonemes.
Letter Olympics is an innovative new resource designed to aid learners with specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia. It provides a useful addition to any structured learning program and is ideal for use as a therapy tool as well as with the inclusive mainstream classroom. Children up to 7 commonly reverse the letters b and d, but ongoing reversals are sometimes a cause for concern and may need extra support. Persistent letter reversals or confusion may affect literacy development and can result in reading and spelling errors, frustration and poor self-esteem.
