“I can get by reading but my spelling is poor, it’s always really held me back.”
“I didn’t have a good experience at school, I’m nervous about learning again, I don’t really want to go to college to learn to read and spell.”
“My child is starting school; I know I can’t help them with reading and spelling so I need to catch up on my own skills.”
“I was never diagnosed with Dyslexia at school but I’m pretty sure I am.”
I’m Georgina, the author of CodeBreakers®. I understand the frustration it causes trying to get individual and personal help, as an adult. CodeBreakers® was written with an aim to help individuals receive Dyslexia specific intervention, at home. I knew when I wrote CodeBreakers®, all too often adults only had access to children’s resources and it wasn’t appropriate. I’ve used the workbooks with mum’s wishing to work on their own reading and spelling, as their child is starting school. It’s helped adults gain confidence to finally fulfil their work goals or apply to university. (carousel adult stories)
I understand the negative experiences some adults have had and this still impacts upon their confidence, despite being very able in many other ways. I know from my own family’s experience, how this has an impact and I am passionate about ensuring everyone can maximise their potential, by creating independent and confident learners.
CodeBreakers® has been written by me, a qualified dyslexia assessor and tutor, with years of teaching experience. The programme is based on best practice gathered over the years.
My Dyslexia Tutor at CodeBreakers® is just like having a tutor in your own home. It provides a printable workbook, a video tutorial to demonstrate every page of the workbook, where you can join in and complete your own workbook. The animated explainer video will introduce each sound/pattern and any rules. The games provided also make learning a little more fun! The bite sized activities allow you to break learning into small chunks each day, working at your own pace. Many programmes rarely give opportunity for over learning and it’s this which makes learning ‘stick’, along with multi-sensory techniques.
The step-by-step programme takes away all the stress of looking for resources. All you need to do is print your workbook and you can join in, watching the video at a time suitable for you. Pause when you want to take a break and join in again at any time.
A pathway helps you to understand which direction you will take and which workbooks will be followed. A quick quiz at the end of a workbook will check learning.

“Our working mum in Derbyshire had been attending adult education but wanted a more personal approach to learning. Her aim was to be able to support her child with reading and spelling, once they became of school age. As a result of using CodeBreakers she’s now writing more complex sentences and reading with good flow. She’s now passing on good skills to her child.”
