What is the best teaching method for dyslexia?
The most effective way to teach kids with dyslexia to read and spell is to use a multisensory structured language education (MSLE) approach. Programs that use this type of instruction are often referred to as Orton–Gillingham based approaches.
How does a dyslexic person read?
Most people think that dyslexia causes people to reverse letters and numbers and see words backwards. Because word reading takes more time and focus, the meaning of the word often is lost, and reading comprehension is poor. It’s not surprising that people with dyslexia have trouble spelling.
Why do dyslexics have bad handwriting?
To summarize, the data on handwriting suggest that handwriting difficulties may result from difficulty with spelling in children with dyslexia. Even those data indicating motor difficulties still suggest that this may result from spelling uncertainty. As a result, children with dyslexia have poor handwriting.
