The Reading Focus Card is a Winner!

The Reading Focus Card Awarded Seal of Approval

A very happy third anniversary to the Reading Focus Card (Patent 7,565,759).  We are so happy to have this product as one of our long-standing award-winners.  Developed by Brennan Innovators, LLC, the Reading Focus Card exemplifies the spirit of the Kidlutions Solutions for Kids Award, which is granted to products that change lives. The Reading Focus Card continues to make a difference in lives of struggling and new readers world wide!

How It Helps

The Reading Focus Card is a non-invasive and inexpensive reading aid.  It helps kids with a variety of learning styles by providing differentiated instruction for such issues as: ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, autism, low vision issues and stroke-related difficulties.  It can even help young readers because it promotes left to right reading.  

The Reading Focus Card can be used with e-readers (the shorter version is perfect for Kindle) and e-tablets (the long version works great with iPads, Android tablets, etc.)  This tool has so much versatility!

The Reading Focus Card is Now Tech Savvy

The card and reading window size adjustments, as well 
as the color options of both will be nearly unlimited.

It appears we have more to celebrate than an anniversary, however! The Reading Focus Card is now available in an app (Patent 8,360,779)! Seems too good to be true, but it's not! I'd say Brennan Innovators, LLC, is aptly named.  The company is a front runner in innovation and taking things to the next level.
