Arnold Reading Magic

iPad Application

The Arnold Reading Magic iPad application allows learners to practice reading and spelling in a flashcard format.

Arnold Reading Magic is perfect for parents or teachers to use to individualize learning and keep a record of the results. ARM will greatly benefit a person with learning disabilities such as dyslexia where repetition and review are important in retaining learned information.

The presentation speed can be controlled with the goal of increasing the speed over time to a mastery level. Errors can be easily marked for immediate review, and a history is kept of each session. Multiple learners can be added quickly along with additional learning material (lists and phrases). ARM is useful for people preschool age and up.

For maximum benefit, young children will need an adult to set up and run the app as operator/tutor. Middle-school ages and up can use ARM independently.

ARM is not a game; it's a serious learning tool based on over 40 years of teaching experience. The in-person clinic is in Madison WI.
