Welcome to HELP Educational Games. Our aim is to provide a unique range of board games which will help children of all ages and abilities with specific learning difficulties associated with Literacy - helping them to achieve their potential in reading and spelling ability.
Children love to play traditional board games and playing games like these reinforce many essential skills such as memory, concentration and social interaction. Combining these abilities with key learning skills helps children grow and develop greater competence with reading and spelling.
HELP Educational Games are designed by qualified and experienced teachers. Our aim has always been to establish a range of exciting board games that children of all ages and abilities will find fun to play whilst learning at school or in the home. Our Focus on all of the key phonetic skills endorse their use for literacy within the National Curriculum. Some of our games also include additional components for numeracy skills.
