Join Super D, the dyslexic Superhero on an EXCITING adventure Co-starring your DYSLEXIC CHILD!
This is a chance for your child to have fun, feel better about their brain, and start to think about their dyslexic superpowers.
This is not…..
School or Homework (yuck!)
Check out the video of me and my six year old nephew talking about the challenge and explaining how it can help your child.
The nuts and bolts:
The challenge is compiled of 8 quests. Each child will have their own map to keep tract of their progress.
Each week you will be emailed that week’s quest. Complete each quest whenever it is convenient for you and your child. There is no
deadline or end date.
The materials will need to be printed (you will be receiving pdfs).
For your child to receive their medal in the mail you must send a photo of their completed map to firstname.lastname@example.org
The challenge is designed for kids 5-12 years old. This is not a hard and fast range. You know your child best. If you have any questions please email us at email@example.com Obviously younger kids will need more help than older kids, but regardless of age this is a program that is designed for parents/guardians to do with their children. It’s important that they see you as the one who is helping them see their brain in a positive light.
This is the first challenge in the Kaboom Kapow Series called the Irish Snowman Challenge. Why that name? Dyslexics are known to be able to link two things that don’t seem to be able to go together. Leprechauns and snowmen for example.
In this challenge….
We are focusing on what your child can do, not what they can’t. So we are not concerned with spelling and there are no right or wrong answers or corrections.
Example of some of the Quests: Each week’s quest is an activity designed to have kids see their brain in a more positive light. Some of these come across very obviously about how they do that and some are less obvious. Each week has a short note or video to parents/guardians to explain the benefits and why behind it.
One week kids learn about three famous successful dyslexics who had many failures along the way to success. We talk about failure as a positive way to success not as a negative. Another week we look at the traits of superheros–courageous, creative, trustworthy etc and then think of specific times where your child demonstrated those qualities. This is a great exercise in helping them realize that they not only have a lot of great character traits, but also ones that they look up to and appreciate in superheros. Then we take the two traits your child resonated with the most and turn them into bookmarks so they can be reminded of their awesomeness when they are doing something challenging. Pictures are of the dyslexic failures quest.
Here is the medal your child will earn:
Investment: This program was originally going to be $69 when it was set to launch in October for Dyslexia Awareness month. Understanding the
current state of the world and wanting to be sensitive to the fact that families find themselves in all different sorts of financial situations we
created a three-tiered pricing system. Your investment in this challenge can be $29, $49, or $69. Please pick which option works best for your family.

FAQs: If your question isn’t answered by the ones below please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
1. I have more than one dyslexic child. Do I have to purchase more than one challenge?
a. Email us for a special discount at email@example.com The first child will be regular price (whichever price option you choose) and after that you will just need to cover the cost the medal and shipping for each additional child.
2. I really want to do this with my child, but I don’t have a printer or have access to one. Help!
a. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
3. Why are there different prices?
a. I’ve always believed that money shouldn’t dictate which kids get support and which don’t. I believe that now more than ever. The program’s original investment (that was going to launch in October) was $69. Understanding the current state of the world
and wanting to be sensitive to the fact that families find themselves in all different sorts of financial situations we created a three-tiered pricing system. Pick which option works best for your family. If you purchase the $49 or $69 option know that you are supporting kids who wouldn’t be able to participate in the challenge otherwise through our buy one give one program.
4. I can’t afford any of the options, but would love my child to do this challenge. What can I do?
a. No worries. We’ve got you! We understand that many are in a position of financial uncertainty and we believe that shouldn’t
mean your child misses out. For each challenge purchased at $49 we are giving away 2 challenges to those who would be unable to participate otherwise and for each program purchased at $69 we are giving away 3 challenges. We are going to use the honor system and hope only those that truly need it take advantage. Email as at email@example.com
5. I want to help more children participate in this challenge. How do I do that?
a. First of all thanks so much. Secondly, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
6. What if I miss a week?
a. No worries. There is no specific time that each quest has to be completed by. So complete each quest when it works for you and your family. It’s designed as an eight week program, but if it takes you a little longer no worries.
7. My child is outside your age range for the challenge. Can they still participate?
a. The range is not hard and fast. Use your discretion—you know your child best. If you have any questions please email us
8. Can I gift a free challenge to someone I know or does it have to be anonymous?
a. If you have someone you would like to gift the challenge to then please email us with their name and email to set that up. If you don’t know of anyone then the donation will be anonymous.
