Reading is a complex, integrated action. Each of the physical components that are a part of the learners’ interaction with the reading task is so integrated that it is difficult, if not impossible, to distinguish between them. It is necessary to understand visual perception and eye movement in order to understand the reading process. Reading is a means of language acquisition, of communication, and sharing information and ideas.
Reading development is not completed at the end of Primary School years. Even up to the end of the final year of schooling and beyond into further training; training in reading skills is important in developing the full potential of our users. When looking at processing speed within the reading action, we take note of the following: the essential building blocks for reading should be mastered. These essentials include phonological awareness, phonics, vocabulary and fluency. If one of these should lack during the reading process, comprehension is severely compromised, and academic reading cannot take place. Fluency in reading is critical for reading competency and is consequently fundamental in reading success.
Exercises within EyeBrainGym TM develops students’ perceptual accuracy, visual efficiency, visual accuracy and visual memory, subsequently enabling students to bypass decoding because words and word parts are automatically recognized. The improved processing speed then allows working memory to be fully utilized for comprehension purposes.
These exercises are available on-line, accessible on PC, laptop, tablet and any smart device. The different interactive exercises are presented as fun brain games that you can practice on any smart device. After each exercise and lesson, we will provide you with an exciting report of progress.
