What is dyslexia?

Dyslexic children and adults struggle to read fluently, spell words correctly and learn a second language, among other challenges. But these difficulties have no connection to their overall intelligence. Reading is complex. It requires our brains to connect letters to sounds, put those sounds in the right order, and pull the words together into sentences and paragraphs we can read and comprehend.

What is the cause of dyslexia?

The causes of dyslexia vary with the type. In primary dyslexia, much research focuses on the hereditary factors. Researchers have recently identified specific genes identified as possibly contributing to the signs and symptoms of dyslexia.

Can dyslexia be cured?

Dyslexia is a disorder present at birth and cannot be prevented or cured, but it can be managed with special instruction and support. Early intervention to address reading problems is important. These may include an educational specialist.

  • First, we will re-establish child self-confidence, the words “lazy” won’t allow to use anymore
  • Due to the possibility of forgetting books or notes, every individual student got his/her shelf in classroom to leave staffs there
  • At the beginning teacher won’t ask child with dyslexia to read aloud as if words are misread or skipped, can cause embarrassment
  • Teaching and learning process will be more concentrated on reading and writing
  • Teachers provide multisensory experiences for students related to each subject that they read, such as using stories and coloring pages
  • Choose rhyming books with high repetition of words and phrases

What we do in class learning?

  • Supporting comprehension is the main objective in class
  • Preview the title, pictures, chapter names, and bold-faced words in order to make a prediction.
  • Connect new information to previously learned information by talking about a personal experience related to the theme.
  • Verbalize or write questions prior to reading the text.
  • Discuss reading schemas for different types of textbooks (i.e. compare math and history). Highlight salient information that each genre addresses. Visual webs are useful for the student to preview and complete as they encounter key information.
  • Pre-teach key vocabulary for a particular unit or chapter before introducing the text.
  • Provide audio recordings for the student to use while reading the text.
  • Train students to silently read at various rates depending on the purpose; for example, skimming to find a particular term or to get the main idea or gist vs. reading more carefully for directions or comprehension of key concept.
  • Log unfamiliar words in a personal dictionary that includes the sentence that contains the word, page number, a guess about the meaning, the pronunciation, a dictionary definition, and a new sentence using the word.
  • Improve vocabulary for written and verbal expression by forming associations between words, paraphrasing, and elaborating on an idea.
  • Teach prefixes, suffixes, and root words to students to improve spelling, decoding, and comprehension.
  • Give ample opportunities to practice writing target words. The student might be asked to say them, or use them in sentences or a story.
  • Look up unfamiliar words with an electronic speller that has speech output
