My daughter has a learning disability and I after a lot of program searching I finally found A Reason for Spelling It was easy to use with very little teacher preparation There were several suggestions for different multisensory activities to choose from based on the child's learning style While the teachers manual (that is required) made it a little more expensive the cost was worth it as she was able to learn to spell with little stress because of the way the program is built and we both enjoyed the activities and it was so well laid out teacher manual wise I didn't have to do a ton of preparation before hand I can't say enough about this program I loved it!
