    Default Read aloud for dyslexia

    My daughter is partially dylexic, is there a way for the lessons to be read with her or for her to click on words she needs help with? She can read but for comprehension purposes she needs to read and hear it.

    thanks

    Time4Learning has generally worked very well for dyslexics.

    What age / grade is your child?

    In the younger grades, the readings can be played in four different formats:
    A story which can be presented in up to four different formats:
    Read To me - The story is read to you.
    Read Along - The story is read to you with the text highlighted so you can easily follow along. Afterwards, vocabulary words are highlighted for easy repetition and some definitions.
    I can Read The story is not read. Any of the words can be clicked on to hear them read. Vocabulary words are highlighted for easy repetition and with definitions.
    Read by Myself - The story is not read. Vocabulary words are highlighted for easy repetition and with definitions.

    I'm quoting from: http://www.time4learning.com/Hints_90.shtml

    In the upper school, the readings can be read aloud by Pete, the Parrot.

    She is 11

    Thankyou for the quick response! We have found Pete the Parrot, but is there anyway that she can access the....

    Read Along - The story is read to you with the text highlighted so you can easily follow along. Afterwards, vocabulary words are highlighted for easy repetition and some definitions

    (Since dyslexia comes with tracking problems the text being hi-lighted while the story is read to her would help her. )

    Thanks
