Dyslexia Friendly Teaching

A dyslexic child may struggle to learn to read, write and spell new words. They learn best by using all their senses, this is called multi-sensory learning.

Dyslexic children can need to learn a new word up to 10 x times. Multi-sensory learning can help the child learn the same word in 10 different ways by:

  • Hearing
  • Seeing
  • Moving Body
  • Touching
  • Speaking
  • Smelling

Top Tips Course

The 3 activities take just 10 mins per day:

  • Aim to try all 3 activities in 1 week, what days will you do the tasks?
  • Do them with the child, in a quiet place with no distractions.
  • Do each task on different days, to stop the child becoming overwhelmed.

Remember the activities are to practise learning new words. The child may need to repeat them many times on different days. Before they can read and write new words.

Start by Choosing 3 New Words to Learn!

Dyslexic children often struggle as they have rocky foundations in reading and writing.

Ensuring that the child can read and write basic 3 letter words, can help them have strong foundations in English.

Choose 3 words from the list below for the child to learn, as taken from the Basic 3 Letter Words List.

  • arm
  • box
  • cot
  • dig
  • egg
  • fog
  • gym
  • hit
  • ivy
  • jaw
  • key
  • lid
  • men

If the child can already read, write and spell the words above. See more word lists below:
