Why my child struggles to read?

If your child struggles to read, cannot comprehend what he read, and has difficulty in spelling, you need to find out why because he might have dyslexia

 

 

but...

 

Why does the school's traditional reading, writing, and spelling program--- the whole language approach are not working for individuals with dyslexia?

Individuals with a specific language difficulty called dyslexia do not process the language in the same way as others do. They particularly need a step by step instruction that is clear, well organized, and multisensory to obtain the maximum benefit of learning, therefore if your child is dyslexic, he needs further specific help than students without language difficulties:

  • His instruction must be clearly explained and it should be introduced one at a time, from the easiest to the most difficult concepts​ such as teaching and choosing an easy to learn short vowel sound one at a time

  • He needs a multisensory way of teaching using the seeing, listening and touching to reinforce his learning 

  • They get bored easily thus he needs active participation in learning using the, "I do, we do, you do" method of teaching.

  • Because most of them are thinkers, he needs to understand what you want him to achieve such as explaining to him the rules of c, k, ck and ways to remember the rules.

  • He needs strategies and tools or "tricks and tips" to remember the learned concepts, for instance, rules and strategies of the short vowel sounds

  • Because they forget easily, his instruction should include a constant and correct review of the concepts he has learned

  • Most of them are disorganized and get easily distracted,  thus he needs a predictable environment that is free of distraction and must know how to go about the task. He must know where to go, and what he should do first and then next

  • He should feel that he has achieved his best at the end of each session

  • Success should be the goal of every lesson 

 

so what is the BEST reading instruction for my dyslexic child?

 Your decision today is your CHILD'S tomorrow!
