Special Learning Ed Software Presents Educational Software For The PET®

The program consists of individualized computer-based instructional activities in spelling for students with specific language learning disabilities. However, this program will improve the skills of any persons with spelling deficits. The ramifications of using the tapes are many which include teaching average students, slow learners, and those who are studying English as a second language. The program can be used by anyone who can read.

The author is a Language Therapist who has for many years tutored students in grades kindergarten through twelve. These students with specific learning differences are in need of specialized tutoring in the language areas.

The spelling program includes spelling rules, exceptions, and generalizations which provide repetitive exercises and reinforcement as well as motivation to the learner. The drill and practice which persons with specific language learning disabilities require to learn to spell can be provided through tapes to be used on the PET Commodore. All tapes work with any 40-column PET, old or new.

The program consists of 21 tapes covering five basic spelling rules essential to encode words. The complete program is also available on disk.
