Customer Comments

"I am a Resource Specialist, and I have a student who could not read, no matter what program or method I tried. He has serious visual motor, visual discrimination, and visual processing difficulties. I told him that I had a magic wand, your sample strip, and it was going to help him read. He believed it, just like Dumbo’s feather, and he read to me for the very first time. The yellow made the words stand out visually, and it helped his tracking. When I showed and told his mom she cried. Actually we both did because we had tried so many different things. I thought you should know that your invention changed the life of a child, mom, and Resource Specialist. Thank you so much! I can’t wait to give him his very own ‘magic wand’.” S.B


Developing Reading Comprehension Strategies

The Reading Helper is an aid for both beginning and experienced readers who have trouble focusing. Developing reading comprehension strategies can be difficult if the simple task of locating and separating words on a page is a struggle. There are many conditions, including dyslexia, which cause these problems. The Helper is a small tool used in reading comprehension exercises. It is placed over a line or multiple lines of text to be read which helps to focus, making reading comprehension exercises exponentially easier. The colored plastic film allows those who have trouble focusing to more easily make out and separate words, increasing concentration ability and, in turn, the ability to comprehend complex meaning.

Make Reading Comprehension Exercises Easier

Wondering how to improve reading ability? The Helper comes in yellow, red, green, blue, aqua, pink, purple, orange, and clear. Different colors work better for different readers, especially those suffering from scotopic sensitivity. It may be best to test which Helper works best when having students work on reading comprehension exercises. The Helper also comes in three sizes, with the wider Helpers used for covering more than one line at once. Try them all to see which is best in further developing reading comprehension strategies.

What is Scotopic Sensitivity?

Also known as Irlen Syndrome or Meares Irlen Syndrome, this is a series of visual and perceptual disorders that affect reading/writing-based activities. Scotopic sensitivity syndrome is sometimes lumped in with dyslexia, but many sufferers have different difficulties than those faced by dyslexic learners. Colored lenses are often used to treat the syndrome, allowing viewers to see words and faces more clearly. The Reading Helper was developed with this in mind.
