An independently-made online learning system has been developed to help disabled children learn how to read. In a bid to improve the reading ability of her dyslexic son, Linda O’Sullivan, from County Clare in Ireland, thought up the idea of using a famous tale of piracy originating from the Irish seas to help her ten-year-old Oisin as well as other children in the same position, the Irish Independent reports. She developed an online e-learning game including words of a story and short tasks to encourage literacy learning in a fun, entertaining and interactive way, which will help hold the attention of dyslexia sufferers for longer.
