Short-listed for the 2011 Educational Resources Awards Supplier of the Year, Crossbow are a trusted "one-stop shop" for many schools seeking multisensory or dyslexia-friendly literacy resources, from decodable phonic readers to magnetic foam letters; from spelling games to tinted exercise books and overlays. The Eye Level Reading Ruler (pictured below), was an ERA "SEN product of the year" runner-up in 2006, and is used in over 50% of the schools and colleges in the UK.
Children with visual stress who use tinted overlays read more easily and for longer, and can dramatically improve written presentation if they write on the correct tinted paper, making revision more effective.
Visual Stress can cause letters and words to appear to move around on the page, impeding reading and writing, sometimes severely.
Children learn more effectively from well-presented work. When visual stress is remedied through the use of tinted exercise books learning is improved.
