New 2012 edition of this acclaimed international bestselling Dictionary of Perfect Spelling. This book allows students to use phonic attack to find both regular and irregular spellings. Students can look up a word as it sounds - if they are correct, they will find it in black, if they are wrong they will find it in red, with the correct spelling in black alongside.
For example, here are words the user might go to and then discover the correct spelling next to it:
'abel' and next to it will be 'able'

This book is brilliant for my son who has dyslexia. He can look up words the way he 'thinks they are spelt, and the correct spelling clearly appears next to them. Helps also to boost his confidence. - Parent, Amazon Review
