Color Words Syllable Division is a systematic approach to reading long words. I have successfully used this system with Dyslexic and Learning Disabled readers. They respond to the color coding because it draws attention to the main structures in a hard word (vowels, prefixes, and suffixes) which become sound units instead of letters to be decoded separately. This de-mystifies the reading process. It brings order to the dyslexic's chaos.
