Planning homeschooling has been easy for me so far. I follow my children’s interests and we do a ton of hands on activities for science, history, and art. Math can be as easy as playing games and setting up a play store. Reading has consisted of, well, lots of reading. However, as my kids get older homeschool language arts has been a more difficult area. My son was struggling in reading and writing and we determined that he has dyslexia. I began to look for homeschool reading curriculum for dyslexic kids.

Searching for a dyslexic reading curriculum online is overwhelming! There are so many options, I didn’t know where to start. Thankfully, I learned about Homeschool Buyers Co-op which has high quality homeschool curriculum at discount prices.
I also spoke with trusted homeschooling friends with dyslexic kids as well as reading specialists about curriculum choices for reading for dyslexics that they loved. These are some of the top recommended language arts curriculum choices.
Top Online Reading Curriculum for Kids with Dyslexia

Fun, engaging phonics based online reading game for children ages 4-8. My kids played this for years and absolutely loved it! They truly learned and I had to make them stop playing, they loved it so much.

Online Read-Along Libraries.
I have heard wonderful things about this online read-along library. Children who struggle to read can read along with 1,000s of novels and textbooks at their age level, which would be above their skill level to read on their own. They learn and gain confidence, vocabulary, knowledge, and a love of literature through books they can enjoy. We have yet to try it as you need to have a diagnosed learning disability in order to have a membership. We have tried other read along programs, but their libraries consisted of early readers that held no interest for my older child or the voice of the reader was robotic and painful to listen to. We love listening to audio books, but I would love if my son could follow along to highlighted words on Learning Ally.

Also an online read-along reading library, but this program requires the student read aloud into a microphone and the virtual reading assistant helps the readers any time he struggles. Also scores and assesses student progress. I may have to give this one a try, but approved headsets are required.

No program fits all, but I hope this list of the best dyslexic reading curriculum online reading programs helps you find the right fit to help your dyslexic child learn to read. There are so many options for language arts curriculum it can be frustrating to find one that works well for kids with dyslexia. Grab one of these deals through Homeschool Buyers Co-op before they expire and let me know what you think of the reading program once your child has a chance to play with it.

We LOVED Nessy! It is easy to learn and fun to play. 🙂
This is great! I’m going to have to save this for a friend whose son has severe dyslexia! Maybe these could help…

We used reading eggs for a bit; I loved that my boy was excited to play games and really didn’t think of it as work. Pinned.
