About Dyslexia Quest

Dyslexia Quest is a game-based quest designed to help assess your child's memory and listening skills. It helps point parents in the right direction since it serves as a basic skills screener to identify strengths and weaknesses. It uses games to assess a child's strengths and weakness in the following areas: working memory, phonological awareness, processing speed, visual sequential order, auditory sequential memory, and visual memory.

Teacher Review

Dyslexia Quest takes the reader on a journey locating their skills levels in visual memory, phonological awareness, auditory and sequential memory, visual sequential memory, processing speed and working memory in order to determine areas which may need additional intervention and build reading levels. This application can be used as an ongoing progress-monitoring tool to assess areas of improvement in reading skills. In addition to the ability levels, a brief description of each ability level and the uses for each skill level is included. The student also has the option of a reader-friendly description of dyslexia and personal dyslexia quiz.

It is divided into six games that each take about 10 minutes to play. If you have a child who struggles with distractibility, it may be best to play this app in increments to get the best results. Activities are divided into three levels: Elementary, middle-high school and adult. The goal is to assess working memory, phonological awareness, processing speed, visual sequential memory, and visual memory. Upon completion of each adventure, you're given scores and details about your strengths and weaknesses. Kids are inherently motivated to complete each of the quests whereas the score keeping and gaming nature provide incentive for users to retry levels in order to improve their standing.
