Visual Sequential Memory Skills_Level Four_Ascenders G
The first game to practise recalling a sequence of similar-looking letter shapes

I teach this game to children aged 6 through to adults.  This game is designed to follow the games to develop visual sequential memory skills from Levels One, Two and Three.  Visual sequential memory is a prerequisite skill for literacy, and one which is often relatively weak in dyslexics and dyspraxics.  This fun game stimulates visual sequential memory by encouraging the dyslexic or dyspraxic to recall a series of letters by visualising rather than by repeating the letter names in an attempt at auditory recall.  This game is a gentle yet exercising introduction to this process of visual sequential recall.  Once the dyslexic or dyspraxic is confident at playing this game, he or she progresses to try Vowels A (below). 

Visual Sequential Memory Skills_Level Four_Vowels A G
Advancing skills: this game uses the most difficult letters of all to recall

I teach this game to children aged 7 through to adults.  A good sequel to Ascenders (above), Vowels A is even more challenging.  This advanced game
to help develop visual sequential memory skills involves the dyslexic or dyspraxic
in visualising and recalling precisely a sequence of the very similar-shaped vowel letters.  The vowels are often problematic for dyslexics and dyspraxics, due to their similar shapes and subtly-different sounds.  This fun game is valuable in focusing the dyslexic or dyspraxic's visual attention on the vowel letters.  Once the dyslexic
or dyspraxic is confident at playing this game, he or she advances to play the game Vowels B in Level Five Visual Sequential Memory Skills.
