"wonderword has been a great tool for helping my 13 year old son with autism. Children with autism have a hard time learning incidentally, and therefore it is difficult to teach them concepts that don't always occur in day to day experiences. With wonderword, my son is able to take a group of words, link them to one another, and then link them to the hint or solution to the puzzle. He completes them so quickly too, it is amazing. He also also provoked to ask us what certain words mean, which is starting to help with his reading comprehension. We have tried many different types of puzzles with him, but only wonderword keeps him motivated to the end to find the solution. It is also helping his memory and focus. When he goes back to old puzzles, he looks at all the words, and tries to remember the answer without looking at it. He gets so excited Mondays and Fridays to download the new puzzle, and has completed the 3 books that we bought from the website. His grandmother cuts the puzzle from her newspaper everyday, and mails them to him once a week. He can't wait for them to arrive. What a great key to unlocking many of the struggles that these children have. Thanks wonderword!"
