Systems for teaching literacy, that fit with
the way a child’s brain likes to learn.
Our Literacy Mission: “Helping every child become a confident reader and writer, without exception.”
Check our online reviews and independent research to see how we are getting on with that.
What’s different: Our new approach harnesses the strong visual abilities of children to make the auditory tasks of reading and spelling much easier. We call it Trainertext Visual Phonics (TVP).
What to expect: You can expect to see confidence building in days, because the lessons feel easy and fun. Then a good general reading accuracy starts to come through in 60-90 short sessions. The spelling development follows on after that.
Why the brightest children often guess short words instead of reading them:
About DM Education
We are a research team entirely focused on our mission to make reading and spelling progress easy and quick for anyone, anywhere. We research as we teach. So we help the children and they help us keep learning too.
We have been helping struggling readers and spellers all over the world since 2008, but we are now doing more work with younger children too, to get it right just as they start to learn to read. That is with a new app we call the Poop Deck. We help the older children with the Easyread System.
I think you will find that what we do is different to anything you have tried before.
At the core of the DM Education approach is a neurological analysis of what happens in the brain as someone reads or spells. Reading and spelling are skills that happen in the subconscious, “procedural” memory systems. So you need to help the brain learn the skill of reading or spelling in the same way as you teach a sport.
For that reason we have developed our visual phonics approach, which we call Trainertext. It allows the learner to keep decoding and spelling words successfully until they are proficient. Short, fun and easy practice sessions are the key, not sweat and tears.
