Percival's Essential Spellings is ideal for children who are finding the traditional "look, cover, write, check" and "synthetic phonics" approaches that are used in schools ineffective. It has been specifically designed to help children who have dyslexia, including the ability to alter the colour of the screen and wording to better suit their needs for colour contrasts, caused by the often linked condition of "visual stress".


Developed by a leading primary school teacher, and outstanding Special Needs Assistant, Percival's Essential Spellings is used in schools throughout the country to teach Key Stage One, Key Stage Two and secondary school pupils with spelling difficulties.
