The learning challenges I’ve faced with one of my children, his language issues and anxiety and possible dyslexia, is something I write about often here on my blog. We have struggled, and fought, and overcome – and we are still awaiting further testing to see if there’s anything else going on with him. I have often thought to myself at times, “What if there was something I could do to help him right NOW, in the meantime?”

When I had the opportunity to take a look at Nessy Parenting Pack, I jumped on it! While I was a bit skeptical at first, after looking it over a bit I thought “FINALLY – a way I can try to help my language challenged child!”
Fun, Game-Based, Dyslexia Screening
I’ve definitely walked some hard paths with my oldest child. I’ve also definitely found myself wishing that there were some way that I could better help him. Something – anything. I wasn’t even sure if dyslexia would be on our radar – but with the help of Nessy’s FREE WHAT IS DYSLEXIA E-BOOK I saw some familiarity there with my son and thought “this might be just what we need”.
When I sat down with my son, he first balked a little at the look of Nessy’s site but I said “it’s not a big deal, it’s just a game or a few activities”. I didn’t tell him I was going to get results from his answers that told me whether he was showing likeliness of having dyslexia.
We were just playing.
And play, we DID!
Nessy is Not Just For Dyslexia
While helping children with dyslexia is Nessy’s main objective – we had a fun surprise when my youngest child, who doesn’t struggle in the least with language, wanted to join in the fun!
She played Nessy Numbers, Nessy Reading and Spelling, Writing Beach, and even did the Yeti Mountain Dyslexia Quest too! She was retaining writing and grammar ideas more quickly than she had yet with any other approach! It wasn’t school, it wasn’t learning – it was FUN.
Clear Concise Results
My son completed as much of the Yeti Mountain as he could – he found it tiring, and a bit difficult as the challenge progressed. I worried that if he didn’t complete the whole thing that we wouldn’t see the results clearly or that they would be skewed.
The cool thing was – at each step along the way I could log in to the admin panel and view his results and see which areas he struggled and how serious those struggles were. And as I watched those results, I was able to see that maybe we should continue the testing and see where it all ended up. He does show some warning signs of dyslexia – nothing too major, but enough that it’s on our radar.
At nearly 12, he thought it would be easy and light – but he was challenged, and is still working through the program. I think he realized very soon that this was deep and challenging and not just some silly online game.
Who Can Use Nessy’s Parent Pack?
