Planet of the Alphas, France

Planet of the Alphas (in French only) is an effective, game-based reading method, equally useful for teaching reading to 4-year olds as for intervention in difficulties with reading (dyslexia, dyspraxia …). The child discovers that each ‘Alpha’ is a character which has the same shape and sound as the letter it represents.
