To read 50% of most books, a dyslexic child only needs to be able to read 100 words. The reason is the same words are repeated time and time again in books.
This is amazing, if they can understand half the information in most books. Then they have a great foundation in reading to build upon. So I have put together a list of 100 crucial words below, so you can help the dyslexic child learn them.
100 Words Card
The Mooki Cards contain a “100 Words” card. To help dyslexic children read 50% of most books. Use the card below on your phone or tablet for free!
If a child can read 50% of most books, this means they can understand most of the story and information. This can help when learning new things and answering questions.
Knowing the 100 words give the dyslexic child a good foundation in reading and writing. They can then focus on learning new more complicated words, as they already know the basics.
A basic understanding of common words, helps build the childs confidence. As they know they will be able read most of any book they are given, only needing to ask for help with trickier words.

Tops Tips from Dyslexic Mum
100 Words - Start using the 100 words list on the card above, by checking how many of the words the child already knows. Which ones can they read and write?
Spot Gaps - You will then be able to see gaps in their learning, if there are any words they don't know. The child can then work towards learning how to read and write all 100 words on the list.
Fun Learning - The child can have fun learning all the words by using other cards in the deck. See cards below for dyslexia friendly teaching methods. Avoid overwhelming the child by doing too many words at the same time. Focus on them learning just 5 words per week.
