What age groups can benefit from Orthograph?

14 Nov, 2022

This is a question we get from time to time here at Alemira: can older students and adults benefit from using Orthograph? Or is the software just meant for younger children?

Most user studies examining the results of using Orthograph were done with children. The first study involved eighty children between the ages of nine and eleven. The following user study was again conducted with children, this time 67, with varying learning needs. Both studies showed conclusive results that Orthograph helped all children improve their reading and writing skills, making a great leap for inclusion for Alemira School.

Another study was conducted at the University of Zurich with several adults to test the software’s benefits for adults. The study found the following results:

  • Participants made significantly fewer mistakes after three months of using the software
  • After a four-month break, the improvements were still measurable
  • Adults with a higher rate of errors at the beginning benefited most from the software

Those are pretty encouraging results! There haven’t been any research studies involving Orthograph and older students (teenagers and high school students). However, some schools that include Orthograph in their curriculum have also used the software with students up through eighteen. These schools have seen improvement in these students’ reading and spelling skills.

So we are confident that all age groups can benefit from using Orthograph. Seeing children and adults make progress in reading and spelling through our software inspires us here at Alemira School.
