GraphoGame was developed in Finland and is based on the scientific follow-up study of Finnish children at familial risk for dyslexia from birth to reading age which was started by Professor Heikki Lyytinen in the early 1990s. GraphoGame helps a child learn to read by teaching important letter-sound correspondences which are the building blocks of reading.
Development of the UK GraphoGame Rime was undertaken by Professor Usha Goswami & Dr Fiona Kyle (GraphoWORLD Network of Excellence*, UK) between 2008-2011 with funding from European Commission Marie Curie Excellence Grants (hosted by Agora Centre, University Jyväskylä, Finland with *Excellence Team Leader, Dr Ulla Richardson).
