Times Tales® & Learning Disabilities
You do have a superb product and I love the new DVD version! I have been recommending Times Tales for years as a great way for children with dyslexia to quickly memorize their multiplication tables. If your kids are like most children with dyslexia, they will learn those times tables in about 30 minutes." ~Susan Barton, Founder Bright Solutions for Dyslexia
Our product has received literally hundreds of testimonies and reviews throughout the past decade from bloggers, teachers and parents sharing their own personal stories about how Times Tales worked- often times when other programs had failed. One of the most memorable testimonies that we received was from a teacher who had a group of dyslexic students leave for part of the time she taught the rest of the class math. After a few weeks, she soon realized that the dyslexic group of students were scoring better on their math, than her students that didn't have learning disabilities. She asked the special ed teacher what she was doing that made these students excel in math and discovered that they had been taught Times Tales. Needless to say, the teacher soon after bought Times Tales for her whole classroom.
There's many more wonderful testimonies singing the praises of how effective Times Tales is at helping children memorize the most difficult times tables. Below is a sampling of just a few of the reviews we have received on Amazon. Currently, Times Tales print version has a 4.5 star rating and our DVD version has a 5 star Amazon rating.

"Okay, add me to your list of amazed parents!!!! What a program!! Great for children with dyslexia! When we started my 8 yr old (dyslexic) son couldn't do any of the multiplication problems, and my 10 yr old (dyslexic/ADD) son could only answer the 9x9 multiplication problem from memory. I worked with each son for about 20 minutes the first day. It took another 20 minutes, on the second day, to complete the program and they both had it down pat. Both scored 100 on their test!"
A very satisfied customer,
"Oh My Gosh, Thank you a million times over - NO wait! Make that a million times 6, 7, 8, and 9!! :-) I am going to paste and copy an email that I sent to the TS Alliance list serve. Which is a very large national and international group of parents with children with a rare genetic disease called Tuberous Sclerosis. I explained just what your program did for my child. I sure hope anyone struggling like we have gets a copy for themselves. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. I sure wish you would come out with some more learning tools. This is absolutely the best!!! Here was my email to the TS Alliance list serve:
This is not TS related but I wanted to share this with any other frustrated parent of a 3rd or 4th grader (or any age) struggling with multiplication and division facts. First off before Zack was tested for TS I thought surely he had it because he has white spots on him similar to Megan's. He also has (2) brain cortical hematomas. He also has a bi-cusped aortic valve (which the cardiologist told me had nothing to do with TS but had convinced myself that he may have had conditions while his heart was forming that caused his aortic valve to grow abnormally-sounds crazy). Anyhow his test came back that he did not have TS. But this child has struggled in Math so bad that I thought maybe he had some delays because for the life of me I couldn't understand why three math teachers and two years of trying to teach them to him he just didn't get them. He could get the basic 0-5 and 10's and 11's since of course they were the easy ones.
Monday I ran across a home schooling website that had an advertisement for a program that stated it could teach a child how to do the hardest multiplication facts (the 6's, 7's, 8's and 9's) and in fact could also teach them division in less than 1 hour. These are exactly the ones Zack can't get. I thought they were crazy but for $16.95 I decided to give it a whirl. I have sure spent more than that on books, tapes, multiplication rap video's (ha), flash cards etc.. Well lo and behold I got the priority package today and started working with him after dinner around 7:30. By 8:35 he knew how to multiply and divide all of these higher digits. It uses a mnemonic story system to help your child memorize the information. He was rattling them out faster than I could check his answers. It is a great program and no I don't advertise for them. I am seriously thinking about going to my sons school and telling our 3rd and 4th grade teachers and principal that this has done in 1 hour what we all couldn't do in 2 years of hard work. They had moved Zack into the EIP class for math only because of not knowing is multiplication facts. YAHOO!!"
"I learned of it from a group on Facebook about homeschooling kids with dyslexia. It got rave reviews so I checked it out. Upon checking it out I had my daughter who will soon start multiplication watch the video. By the time the video was over she knew her 9x tables and the smile on her face said it all. Later I quizzed her about it and she still remembered. I became so excited all I could was cry! My husband and I knew immediately this was what was needed for our girls."
