I mentioned yesterday I would share with you what we are currently using for reading help. So when I found out my daughter had dyslexia it was overwhelming and a relief. I was ready to do the work we needed but felt helpless. You can purchase it
So I started looking into different programs. None of the free versions seemed to work long-term and some of the paid programs were so expensive. In my search, I came across Lexia Reading Core 5.
It is a bit repetitive but that is just what my daughter needs. So while it can be a bit much at times. It is so worth it. In 3mths, I could tell the difference in her reading. She was gaining confidence and is enjoying it more because she is seeing the fruit of her labor.
I first found about it was here. However, it won’t take you long to realize it is marketed to public schools, not the homeschool family.
When I called them they sent me here. The price tag while pricey was better than some of the ones I had seen. However, I didn’t quite seal the deal there because I wanted to do this for both my girls. It can be used for a remedial or a new learner.
Thankfully, I came across it cheaper and did sign the girls up. The difference it has made in my daughters reading skills is awesome and makes me want to give it ***** but there are some things I am not too fond of, like the way it repeats lessons; the kiddos can be on the same exact problems, if they are struggling with a topic which can be frustrating doing it over and over again.

It appears to be a time-based thing rather than completion which would be good if the screen stopped when the time was up but it doesn’t; it could just go and go, and go if you let them or rather if they let you.
I do love that they have a behind the scenes grading system with more detail than teaching textbooks. Also, there are printable lessons if I need to teach the concept they’re struggling with to give them a better understanding.
Overall, the proof is in the pudding, and it’s working. So whether I like certain things or not if it works, it works.
This is where I found the best deal. You can purchase it here. Additionally, if you purchase it from the link I shared I will get a bonus as well through Homeschool Buyers Co-op.
