The Simplyhowe learning system uses the internationally recognised Dolch list, the 230 so-called service words needed to attain fluency in English. Dyslexics have strong visual skills and learn best through pictures and imagery. They can master spelling words considered difficult such as ‘volcano’ or ‘dinosaur’ because they can visualise them. But they can have difficulty with words such as ‘soon’ or ‘or’ as they have no visual connection.
The Simplyhowe solution harnesses these visual skills through the use of a unique colour-coding system which makes that visual connection and accelerates phonetic awareness . The student intuitively learns about word structure, how smaller words fit into bigger ones. Colour has been long recognised by leading scientists in the field as a powerful learning gateway. Colour connects with all 12 neuro-pathways to brain.
The Simplyhowe learning solution also incorporates a unique Memory Filing System ™. This accelerates the students memory capability. By using the memory cards through a simple mind mapping technique, the student will very quickly realise that they can learn as well as the next person. This has an immediate effect on confidence and self-esteem.
Most existing training solutions consist of at least 100 hours of one-to-one training. The Simplyhowe method greatly reduces these hours while providing measurable and tangible results. It is also suitable for teaching in groups.Most importantly it is highly engaging and fun for a student who might feel slightly alientated from the education system.
