Our Reading Music App – CDSM
About the FREE App, CDSM – Cintron Dyslexia Solutions with Music
FREE on Android and soon to be FREE on IOS.
Summary (previously called Dunking Dyslexia)
CDSM helps with reading, writing, spelling, pronunciation, and speech for
those with learning challenges, on the autism spectrum, in speech classes, and in ELD
classes. It’s combining music with spelling with music played in the left ear, and spelling in
the right ear. The spelling words progress in difficulty per lesson starting with 3-letter
words, to 4-letter words. Then advancing to 2 syllable words and then two words
that typically go together. Sentences follow with the progression of difficulty as well.
Word Lists can be purchased on Teachers Pay Teachers for Cintron Orton Gillingham Reading Institute. (Go to the Store dropdown in this menu).
Description You’ll see on the app:
Cintron Dyslexia Solutions with Music (CDSM) provides parents an alternative to helping your child bring a B to an A…that is, if your child knows phonics. If, not, this app is intended to be used with Dr. Cintron’s Step By Step Reading Program ©.
This app requires internet connection and is divided into three subgroups. Students should be 7 years or older for using these exercises with the music. Music is always played in the LEFT ear and spelling in the RIGHT ear. This is called “Enhanced Lateralization.”
For each button, students tap the button to begin the exercise, which can be paused, rewound, or fast forwarded as the student desires using the back, pause, and forward arrows < = >.
Subgroup 1: Music which is played in the left ear during any reading exercise and letter names and sounds for practice if needed.
Subgroup 2: Spelling word lists increasing in difficulty. There are 28 spelling exercises. Be sure the music is played in the left ear.
Subgroup 3: Spelling sentence groups with increased difficulty. There are 8 sentence groups. Be sure the music is played in the left ear.
Why This App Is Unique
It works! Unlock your dyslexic child’s genius which is hidden because of a low self-esteem.
Sending music in the left ear while the child studies with our reading program helps him/her learn faster! Results consist of students: improved self-esteem, reading without being overwhelmed, writing better paragraphs, speaking up and sharing ideas, moving to the top of the class, loving school and learning.
And if you would like to receive the Spelling Exercises so you can check your child’s work, email Dr. Cintron at firstname.lastname@example.org.
