Roger, great question!

Išll add a site that Bob Regan showed me a while ago.  It is
http://www.starfall.com/.  The site is designed to help children learn to
read.  It is especially helpful to a child with dyslexia.  While this may
not be the type of example you are looking for,  I do consider learning to
read to be a very complex process :)
