Two reading focus cards over text examples

Two reading focus cards over text examples

The Reading Focus Cards isolate 1 or 2 lines of text AND block out more surrounding text than any other reading aids available.  Their optional colored filters (included) can also help decrease visual stress sometimes caused by white page backgrounds. The reality is that many people may have a learning disability which can be diagnosed as ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, or other learning issue. These reading and learning issues are significant challenges for students, parents, and educators alike. These issues can negatively affect an individual's future academic success!  Source: Focusing on Reading | Focus and Learning Issues
