Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 23, 2012
Atlanta’s Reading and Writing Institute (RWI) is thrilled to announce the release of their new Web site, Edugamestar. Edugamestar is an innovative Web site that helps treat dyslexia through the use of online children’s reading games. Bill Madigan, administrator of RWI says, “There is no other site that offers a complete educational therapy program in all of the areas that can disconnect an individual from the reading process. For years I have been astounded by children who could tell me every aspect of a video game, or the smallest details of a Pokémon character but yet could not spell cat.” This realization led to the creation of Edugamestar and the children’s dyslexia reading games.
Wikipedia defines dyslexia as “a learning disability that impairs a person's fluency or comprehension accuracy in being able to read.”
Madigan realized that most children and adults who suffer from dyslexia were disconnected in some way from the system that was supposed to be teaching them to read. They found themselves trying to answer the question: “how do we reconnect them?” The answer was obvious – children’s reading games. Video games provide the type of multi and iso-sensory environment the children can learn well in. Edugamestar has taken the experience of playing a game and turned it into a learning experience by creating an online children’s reading game. What Edugamestar has done is filled a void in the child’s education by using their online children’s reading games to provide a structured and sequential method of learning that focuses on the eight areas of pre-required skill necessary for reading. These skills include:
1. Visual perception
2. Visual motor integration
3. Phonological awareness and memory
4. Eidetic decoding and encoding
5. Visual and auditory sequential memory
6. Overall visual and auditory memory
Edugamestar will provide assistance and relief to families who had no access to educational therapy for their children before. They’re hoping that by providing the children’s reading games and therapy digitally, which cuts down on many of the costs, Edugamestar will allow a larger portion of the population with reading difficulties to become literate and independent people.
