Red Apple Reading Program Review #redapplereadingfun
In my home, teaching reading is a difficult task. With a 6 year old autistic child, repetition is key. But with that same 6 year old having ADHD entertainment is key. How to you get a child with attention deficit and a learning disability to read? I truly have not found one answer, but having programs like Red Apple Reading are a big step in the right direction.

Red Apple Reading makes learning fun. The ability to set a learning level makes it easier to take a step backwards for those children that are not at age level learning. The fun characters help keep kids interested in continuing the program. Personally, my son has no idea the game is about learning. We just tell him it is a game and he can have 30 minutes of game time after school and he thinks it is a reward for behaving at school.
If you have a child that is struggling to keep up with reading or has a disability that makes learning a little more difficult, this is the way to go. As a parent, you should be prepared to get involved in the program with your child. This will not replace you as a teacher. It is just an additional tool for an extra boost in the right direction. I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
