The Reading Pen by Wizcom is a great tool for dyslexics who need assistance with certain words. Using the pen like a hi-lighter, scan the unknown word. The pen will (most times) display the word, pronounce the word, and provide (and read) the definition of the word if still unknown. Further, if words within the definition are unknown, select that unknown word to get the pronunciation and definition.
This pen is a great tool to supplement the Davis® reading exercises when a support person is not available.
