How can I meet the needs of my student with dyslexia?
Reading is the essential tool for most learning at school. Students with dyslexia often need support in learning to read, spell, and express their thoughts on paper. While many students with dyslexia struggle with reading and writing, their struggles are not related to low intelligence. In fact, many students with dyslexia are highly intelligent and very creative.
There are many strategies teachers can use to help support the dyslexic learner. Strategies range from allowing students extended time on assignments and tests, allowing students to use speech-to-text options on iPads and computers, and many more.
