Spell Aid for Kids is the most Dyslexia friendly Children's Dictionary and Spell checker app with Thesaurus and illustrations.

Unlike many other dictionary apps, Spell Aid for Kids is not just about words - it also contains pictures. Children today are used to information being presented in a visual form and consequently they expect their learning experience to reflect that.

What makes Spell Aid for Kids unique and so useful?

Well! It has often been said, “What use is a dictionary if I cannot spell?”.

Spell Aid for Kids is the first dictionary app that caters to the needs of a diverse set of users. It contains four search methods and a fully customisable user interface. Whether a child struggles with spelling or speaks English as a second language, this app will make using a dictionary an enjoyable experience.

In addition to a conventional search facility, there is also searching by voice, Spell Aid for Kids also offers two bespoke methods for finding words – (1) it allow a child to look up words based upon the letters they believe to be in the word (2) with an option that provides results regardless of the order of the letters.

Children who experience colour blindness can take advantage of the customisation features, selecting from an array of font styles, adjustment of font size, unlimited background and font colours, which all makes for a greater reading experience.

The Spell Aid for Kids app gives children the independence and confidence to discover words and their definitions. It also helps to expand their vocabulary and improve spelling. Young readers and writers can look up the meanings of unfamiliar words as well as check for the correct spellings of any word they are unsure of. Users can also choose to use the function which spells the words out, which is especially handy while doing written work or simply revising and memorising the correct spellings of words.
