The flash animation games helped my daughter (ADHD, CAPD, and Dyslexia) make connections between words and ideas, and between words and pictures.
Games are divided into the following groups: Primary (K-2), Intermediate(3-5), Middle School (6-8), High School (9-12).
My daughter used the middle school activities and loved them. Her retention was wonderful. I attribute that to the flash animation and the fact that it was fun. School is NOT her favorite thing in the world, so when learning is fun, she doesn't resist nearly as much.
The site also offers super resources for various topics such as speed reading, SAT, GRE Verbal Tips, GMAT Test Prep, How to Increase Your Vocabulary....
Vocabulary Can Be Fun is especially great for visual-spatial learners (right brained learners) like kids with dyslexia.
