MaxScholar: An Online Reading Program Review!
First of all, let me tell you about MaxGuru MaxScholar Reading Intervention Program from MaxScholar! This a multi-sensory reading and grammar program designed for children in grades pre-k through 12! A very wide range of grades, right?!
The program is geared towards children who have trouble reading–children to struggle with dyslexia, ADHD, processing issues, or just general struggles when it comes to reading and comprehension.
In our family we have two kids who are working on reading skills. Rosie is almost 10 and has been an excellent reader with great comprehension from the very beginning. I didn’t realize how lucky we were! I showed her the basics of phonics and she took off, reading chapter books within a few months of learning to read.
Ada, who recently turned six, has not been so quick to read. She has struggled to sound out words correctly and is generally not thrilled with the entire reading process. I had hoped the MaxScholar program would help her continue to put the puzzle pieces together so she could start reading smoothly and find it more enjoyable.
MaxScholar makes it easy for parents to get started! There are thirteen tutorial videos that are short and concise, explaining how to use each section of the program.
MAXPHONICS was our primary area of focus for Ada since this is the beginning of the reading process.
MAXPHONICS includes four games to practice.
These games are all simple, colorful, and easy for little ones to repetitively practice in order to hammer home basic reading skills and make connections! They aren’t overly flashy or complicated so that kids with learning difficulties don’t become dysregulated, overwhelmed, or distracted.
The little guy we’re caring for during the next couple of months from an orphan hosting program has Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. He clearly gets very dysregulated by too much stimuli and too much input. However these games are something he can do!
The MAXMUSIC section offers two more games. These are musical, obviously, and involve matching letter sounds in one game and clicking on the arrow keys represented on a guitar neck in the other game. These are a little more stimulating, but great for auditory processing practice.
These games all include multiple levels, so children can continue to be challenged!
Here’s a peek at the entry level of the vocabulary game:
Max Scholar is easy for Ada to use on her own! I love that about the program. I also love that it works on tablets! We plan to continue using it over the summer to boost her reading and comprehension skills. My two year old is also quite interested in watching over her shoulder while she plays.
