The didactic material developed allows the globalized reading of the words known by the student using image / text, colors are used to differentiate vowels from consonants, handwritten text, there is a high percentage of use of images and text according to the requirements of the teachers according to the survey carried out with 86% of the use of images and 71% of the use of text, thus developing better visual skills, use of sign language videos to indicate the activities to be developed, allowing the students to interact freely and take the initiative at all times, making it easier to capture and retain information.

The didactic material allows the printing of all the content, the feedback to reinforce the knowledge that the teacher imparts in the classroom, evaluate the student in each of the activities, pointing out the correct and incorrect answers. After the evaluation process of each topic, the individual scores of each activity and the final result for each student are displayed. The training gave favorable results for having fulfilled the expectations of the teachers, causing a great impact, capturing the attention of all from beginning to end, obtaining positive experiences with the realization of the didactic material, being they who have manifested to be satisfied with the results obtained.
