Hey I've been hearing serious rumblings about a fantastic new spelling program called "All About Spelling" Is anyone here using it? Dolly
I just made the leap and bought it. Hopefully I'll have good news to report later. I can recommend a typing program. We were using Typer shark which I thought was wonderful. But my kids 12 and 9 were bored with it. So I researched and found the number 1 computer software for teaching typing to kids. It's called Typing Instructor for Kid 4. My kids are in love with it and spent an hour working with it today! Hurrah! Dolly
Just wanted to let everyone know that my spelling program arrived and so far I am thinking positive thoughts. Dolly

I just got my first part of the program and I am impressed! I used Barton for one year and it is so expensive to keep doing, so I am switching.
I think this is well laid out and will be easy to use and just as thorough as Barton. I picked mine up used and you might be able to get it that way too. I belong to a Yahoo group called HeartofReading and they have a swap day on Friday. If you want to know more about AAS they discuss it frequently on the group.
From the discussions on the HeatofReading website, I would say that most people are having the greatest success for dyslexia with Barton.
And there has been discussion about Omega's helping children learn and think better. My son has improved greatly with these and using
programs geared more for right-brain learners.
Hope this helps, if you would like more information, your friend could easily join the HeartofReading yahoo group, most of those who are
members use Barton or AAS. AAS is an awesome spelling program.
