You may want to talk with your child's teacher about using these techniques in the classroom (adapted from the Dyslexia Way of Thinking website):
- If you are doing stressful classwork, give the student time to relax for a few minutes
- Don´t ask students to read out loud in class
- Use group work
- Give students notes when doing board work
- Read and writing are normal in class, but children with dyslexia learn better with seeing and listening
- Use discussion in class
In the group's Dyslexia Forum, children and adults with dyslexia share their techniques and tips for dealing with a reading challenge, including using yellow paper and yellow overlays on books to ease reading.
