Cesty za pokladem
Dyslexia is a common learning disability, but the educational system in the Czech Republic does not really meet the needs of children with this condition. Not all children have the same type of memory and learn in the same way, some prefer visual information, others auditory information. Therefore, multi-sensory learning provides a suitable learning method for most.
In addition, dyslexics may also suffer mentally from being excluded from the rest of their peers. Based on thorough primary and secondary research, I have developed a prototype of a game that meets the needs of dyslexic children (structured, easy to understand, illustration-based) and can be played individually or in a group setting. The focus of the game is on spelling and reading in Czech.
The game contains illustrated cards with stories at the end of which children find a treasure. Each story focuses on two letters that are often problematic for beginning readers. The letters are hidden directly in the illustrations, which helps children associate their shape with a corresponding object.
The illustrations are also complemented by a short text in which children have the task of filling in the missing syllable. You can find these syllables on the smaller cards in a green cloth bag. The goal of the game is to arrange the cards correctly, fill in all the missing syllables and thus find the treasure.
Treasure Journeys is designed for primary school-aged children and focuses mainly on visual and tactile perception.
