Improving Sequencing Abilities

Sequencing refers to our ability to perceive items in a specific order, and also to remember that sequence. In saying the days of the week, months of the year, a telephone number, the alphabet, and in counting, the order of the elements is of paramount importance.

Many dyslexics have poor visual sequencing ability, i.e. a poor ability to perceive things in sequence and then remember the sequence. Naturally this will affect their ability to read and spell correctly. After all, every word consists of letters in a specific sequence. In order to read one has to perceive the letters in sequence, and also remember what word is represented by that sequence of letters. By simply changing the sequence of the letters in name, it can become mean or amen.

Some dyslexics also have poor auditory sequencing ability, and therefore may be unable to repeat longer words orally without getting the syllables in the wrong order, for example words like preliminary and statistical.

Audiblox offers effective help for children with learning disabilities, at home and in school. It develops and improves foundational learning skills such as concentration, spatial orientation, sequencing, memory, logical thinking, concept of numbers, fine and gross motor coordination, sensory-motor integration, etc. It improves performance in reading, spelling, writing and math.

Mrs. R. Potgieter, a teacher, wrote: I would like to compliment you on a wonderful product. I used Schoolblox [a classroom version of Audiblox] in my Grade 2 class last year. The improvement in the children's reading and spelling ability after a year was great. I had no children with spatial problems. They could all sequence and their memories improved. I think it is a great program and cannot wait to use it again this year.
