Who’s on your gift list this year? If you’re shopping for children with dyslexia or other learning differences, we’re here to help!
In our Lexercise Gift Guide we have assembled a list of toys, books, magazines, and other tools that are both fun and practical. There are suggestions here for ages 1 year to adult, and plenty of possibilities for school-age kids as well as games the whole family can play. Your dyslexic child will enjoy these gifts so much, they might not even notice they are becoming better readers and spellers at the same time!
