icone logo coco pense et coco pouge jeux educatifs enfants

Our educational and pedagogical games program COCO THINKS and COCO MOVES is widely used by DYS children, and we are proud to support all DYS disorders: dyslexia, dyspraxia, dysphasia, dyscalculia, In this guide, you will find out which games to use according to each childs cognitive needs.

Our Coco educational game program was designed in collaboration with health professionals: occupational therapist, speech therapist, neuropsychologist, and psychometrician, and  we are accompanied internally by Sara BONOTTI, our psychometrician.

Figures related to DYS disorders normally vary between studies, countries and time periods. In France we speak of 6 to 8% of dys disorders. It can be said that 4 to 5% of students in an age group are dyslexic, 3% are dyspraxic, and 2% are dysphasic.

Hunting Intruders

 

In this game, the child must find the intruder among the four words presented.

With this game, we work on the identification of words since the child must read the proposed words, recognize them, and give them a meaning. 

In addition, the child works on semantic classification since the child must identify the category to which each word belongs.

Syllabus

 

In this game the child must reconstruct words from syllables. 

With “Syllabus” we work on phonemic synthesis and thus the skill required to put together syllables to reconstruct a word.
The child must recognize the syllables, combine them in the right order and find the right word. We also stimulate the spelling skills.

At the easy level, the child can see the words to be reconstructed, so we can also do the reverse work: from the word, the child must cut it into syllables and then go and find the right syllables among those proposed.

In this game the child must solve mathematical operations. 

With “Calculus” you can work on mental arithmetic

In the difficult level there are also divisions and multiplications to improve in the knowledge of multiplication tables.

In the “free response” mode, there are no propositions to choose from, so mental math will be more difficult.

Shooting Stars

 

In this game the child must connect the stars in ascending order. 

With this game we work on the recognition of numbers and the order of the numerical system

In addition, the child must use his visual-spatial skills to find the right star. 

At the difficult level, the child must alternate between numbers and letters (1, A, 2, B…) so he must switch between different codes and use his working memory.

Shootingstars Numbers Game Education Educationalapp Tablet Kids Children Learning Sports Physicalactivities School, DYNSEO

Silly Sequence

 

In this game the child must look at a series of numbers and say when a sequence of 3 consecutive numbers appears, knowing that it can be an ascending sequence, or a descending sequence. 

 With “Crazy Waterfall”, the child works on the recognition of numbers and the ability to find a sequence without starting from 0.

For example, when the number 23 appears, the child must remember this number, wait for the next number, and check if it is consecutive to 23 and do the same with the next number. In this way, working memory is stimulated.

Assessment of the progress and acquisition of DYS children

Childrens progress can be tracked in 2 different ways:

 

  • The child can monitor his or her own progress,
  • The teacher has access to a monitoring platform to monitor the childrens progress, and to have access to resources, technical sheets and automatic analyses that will allow him to know which games are recommended according to the cognitive functions that need to be stimulated and therefore analyze the scores of each game, and thus be able to focus on the cognitive functions that are weaker and that need to be stimulated.
Logiciel Educatif Favorisant Lapprentissage Des Enfants Tdah 1, DYNSEO

With the COCO THINKS and COCO MOVES program, children can create their own profile and take advantage of the thirty or so games available in the application.

When a student uses the app with their profile, they have the ability to see their progress in the app with:

  • His/her favorite games,
  • The levels of difficulty chosen,
  • Points earned,
  • The duration of the game.

The Apple Tree

 

In this game, the child has to find the chopped words.

The apple tree game can be helpful for children with a dys disorder, as it encourages concentration, spelling, and logic while providing a playful and interactive environment that can strengthen their reading and problemsolving skills. Additionally, the simple structure of the game can help build selfconfidence and reduce learning anxiety.

Quizzle

 

In this game, the child has to answer general knowledge questions, based on the school curriculum.

A quiz game can be beneficial for dys children because it provides an interactive and challenging way to learn, promoting engagement and remembering information. In addition, it helps build selfconfidence by offering rewards for acquired knowledge, which can encourage motivation and enjoyment of learning.

A card a date

 

In this game, the child has to put the events back in order.

A game that focuses on putting events back together is especially important for people with learning disabilities such as dyslexia, dyspraxia or dyscalculia. These disorders can affect the ability to mentally organize sequences of information chronologically or follow instructions in a specific order.

A card a date COCO tablet game

By providing a playful environment where players are encouraged to sort and rearrange events in a logical order, this type of game provides essential practice for building sequencing and temporal organization skills. By allowing dys people to exercise at their own pace in a nonstressful and engaging setting, these games help to improve their cognitive abilities and selfconfidence, making it easier for them to participate and succeed in various areas of daily life, from education to professional life.

A BENEFICIAL SPORTS BREAK  FOR DYSLEXIC CHILDREN

The COCO app requires a sports break every 15 minutes of screen time. This allows them to work out, and then to be more focused!

For children with DYS, doing an exercise requires more effort, especially in terms of concentration and attention. The brain is therefore overloaded and the child can get tired more quickly. It is therefore important not to reach the limit of concentration, and to do this you have to separate the exercises by taking regular breaks. Coco proposes breaks every 15 minutes of screen time to allow the child to air his brain, to rest, to better process the information received and to be more motivated for the next activity.

Moreover, Coco’s break is a dynamic break, which is very important for DYS children. During exercises, children tend to become rigid and tense, because the activities they are doing for them can be difficult. This sports break will allow the children to relax their bodies, reduce the tension of the exercises and thus improve their mood.

In this game, the child has to reproduce balance positions.

In this game, the child has to reproduce balance positions.Play involving balance positions can be beneficial for dys children by developing their motor coordination and sense of proprioception, helping to improve their spatial perception and body awareness. In addition, by engaging them in playful physical activities, it can help reduce stress and promote their concentration, which is essential for their learning and overall wellbeing.

The Acrobat COCO tablet game
 

The importance of sport for dys children is manifold. In addition to the obvious physical benefits, sports activity provides a platform to develop social skills, build selfconfidence, and promote concentration. For dys children, who can sometimes face additional challenges academically, sport offers an alternative means of success and fulfillment. By participating in sports activities, they can discover their strengths, develop coordination, and learn how to manage stress and anxiety. In addition, exercise promotes the release of endorphins, improving their mood and emotional wellbeing. In short, sport is much more than just a physical activity for dys children; It is an important pillar for their overall development.

Also, Cocos break is a dynamic break, which is very important for DYS children. During exercise, children tend to become rigid and tense, because the activities they are doing for them can be challenging. This sports break will allow children to relax their bodies, reduce tension related to exercise and thus improve their mood.

Physical activity has many benefits for children with learning disabilities such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, or dyscalculia. First, regular exercise helps improve motor coordination and proprioception, which can help alleviate difficulties related to dyspraxia, such as problems with balance and coordination of movements. In addition, physical activity stimulates blood circulation and promotes the release of neurotransmitters that are beneficial to the brain, which can improve concentration, memory, and cognition, aspects often affected in children with dyslexia. In addition, sport and group physical activities provide children with dyslexia with enriching social opportunities, promoting the development of social skills, selfesteem and selfconfidence. Finally, regular physical exercise helps reduce stress and anxiety, problems frequently associated with learning disabilities, which can allow children with dyslusia to better manage their emotions and improve their overall wellbeing.
