About Crossbow Education

We are a family business, started in 1992 by SEN teacher Bob Hext, who was finding that the games he devised to teach his dyslexic students were more effective than many of the published materials available at the time.

The parent company is based in the UK. Since we patented the Eye Level Reading Ruler, Crossbow has become the UK brand leader for Visual Stress products, with reading rulers and/or overlays in around half of the schools and colleges in the country.

As well as our own publications and products we sell a wide selection of resources from other publishers, representing what we feel to be the best multisensory resources suitable for dyslexia teaching support in the UK. Our USA branch carries a smaller range, concentrating on Visual Stress resources, synthetic phonics readers from Phonic Books for beginner and catch-up readers, and the leveled Super Readers from DK Education.
