The professional version provides for a seamless integration with a therapist by allowing them to customize the app to meets the child’s needs and track progress by logging into the administration tool in their browser.
Lori Johnston (M.A., CCC-SLP, Licensed Speech Language Pathologist), who developed the concept for DocLexi™, says: ”My 25+ years of experience in working with children who have reading and writing difficulties has enabled me to help create an app called DocLexi™. It has always been my dream to provide children with a tool that makes it easier and more fun for them to overcome their learning difficulties. DocLexi™ is the result of that dream and I am excited to see it come to life.”
The program utilizes a multi-sensory approach by incorporating the following skills: visual scanning and tracking, visual spatial, recall, sequencing, phonological processing and phonics (encoding and decoding).
The exercises are embedded into the exciting DocLexi™ story. The children help the heroes to achieve a happy ending by solving the individual learning tasks:
The DocLexi™ team developed a machine that helped children learn to read, spell, & write. The Outer Space Mixer Monsters stole the machine, broke it apart and hid the pieces all over the world. The DocLexi™ Team is traveling and completing tasks to find the parts to the machine. On all your missions, the children are accompanied by DocLexi™ and his friends. In each game, the children can earn coins to customize their own avatar friend, give him a name and change his looks and outfits. It’s seriously fun!
DocLexi™ will be available in English and German at launch. Apple® iPhone® and iPad®.
