Ellah's Tools for Children with Dyslexia

Sidebar_participants_230px Sidebars_themes
Ellah's Tools: Experiential Language Learning at Home is an online supplement for the fluency program in Take Flight, the latest scientifically proven intervention written by the staff of the Luke Waites Center for Dyslexia at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. Take Flight was created to enable children with dyslexia to achieve and maintain better word recognition, reading fluency, and reading comprehension and to aid in the transition from therapy to real-world learning. Until this study, at-home materials aligned with Take Flight were not available. 100 students in Texas will use Ellah's Tools. Assessments will measure their growth.

The problem to be addressed is the absence of an at-home supplement aligned with Take Flight. This targeted language learning could help children with dyslexia continue to grow outside the classroom and potentially improve in reading fluency, prosody, and comprehension. It could also become more-effective tools for parents.


Ellah's Tools is a systematic visual curriculum that reinforces what students are learning in the dyslexia program at school. Animations and meaning-based activities provide a specialized method for gaining better reading and punctuation comprehension. Dynamic graphics, typography, music, and jingles maximize participation.
