The books and supporting learning materials in the “Tales of Jud the Rat” series are designed to be used for the treatment of dyslexia, as well as difficulties associated with poor reading fluency, poor reading comprehension, and writing and spelling problems. The materials have been developed internationally with both first and second language speakers of English, and are graded from easy to more difficult on the basis of the phonic rules and morphological combinations used in the text.
In treating dyslexia and reading, writing and spelling difficulties, the books and activity books in the series are set in large print and used to teach phonological and phonic skills as well as develop reading fluency. In addition, the phonic skills embedded in the text of each book can be used to teach spelling rules and sequential writing skills. Parent evaluations indicate that the stories in the books are enjoyed by children of different cultural backgrounds, and that the books in the series can also be used as stand-alone reading materials, or simply read for pleasure.
There are manuals outlining the methods used in the programme for teaching foundation skills as well as for developing reading fluency, which are designed to be used with the books and supporting materials in the series. There are other manuals outlining the procedures for developing spelling and sequential writing skills, using the material.
