Nessy has been making fun, educational software for children since 1999. During this time Nessy has gradually developed a reputation for exceptional quality and in recent years has been winner of the prestigious Educational Resources Awards three times in a row. Nessy programs are now used in schools worldwide.
Nessy aims to rebuild self confidence, rediscover self esteem and establish a love of learning. Nessy believes that when children laugh then learning becomes more memorable. Where children play games the increased level of engagement leads to dramatic improvements. Combine this philosophy with a highly structured, incremental system based on well established Orton-Gillingham principles of learning and you can see the reason why academic results show such dramatic gains.
The Nessy approach to learning has been developed by a team of specialist teachers over a period of 20 years. Nessy uses strategies and games that were first proved to be highly effective in the classroom, especially for students who do not seem to learn following conventional methods. Nessy has animated these classroom strategies and games using a unique blend of characters and humor that are both captivating and motivational.
Nessy Reading follows Orton-Gillingham principles. It has been designed to be language-based, multisensory, structured, sequential, cumulative, cognitive, and flexible. Language elements are taught directly and systematically in a highly structured, incremental system of 100 sequential lessons. Typical lessons begin with activities that develop phoneme-grapheme recognition and blending, then advance to whole words and sentences. Spelling activities reinforce reading development.
