Coach Online Links

This page provides links to other websites with useful online resources which Coaches can use to help support their Readers. 

Quick Reads are short, easy to read books for adults, all written by well known authors, but only suitable for readers who have reached the Moving Ahead stage.  The website has an ‘About the Books’ section and a useful Resources page that provides activities to go with some of the books.

Created by dyslexics for dyslexics, it provides information and approaches to try to improve reading, writing, spelling and grammar. Includes video on phonic alphabetic code chart.

 

This is a website with lots of useful information to consolidate the information provided at the initial Read Easy Coach Training course.

This is a way to search word lists. Designed as a crossword puzzle solver, anagram lister, codeword decoder and a helper for other word games.

It is also great for generating word lists to reinforce Yes We Can Read /Turning Pages and useful for onset and rime. You can use it to find words (optionally of a specific length) that start with, end with, or contain certain letters.
