Building mastery of reading skills in early learners
MFA IXD logo with subtle background

By the ages of 6-8, most children have moved from “learning to read” to “reading to learn:’ Struggling readers begin to show significant gaps in their ability to learn at this point in their development. One of the most common causes of underachievement in reading is a difficulty in understanding the relationship between letters and sounds.

Major Tom is a compelling game that promotes reading skills in children who are struggling to read. The game applies researched educational strategies to help kids better grasp letter-sound relationships through color, phonetics, and word patterns.
