Dyslexia Reading Aids, to Help Child Read & Write Easier

Spellers checkers on computers have changed my life. This technology corrects misspelt words and suggests grammatical corrections when writing. I am dyslexic and without spell checker. I wonder would I have been able to pass my university degree and get a job in teaching. Dyslexia aids like spell checkers, can be really helpful for dyslexic children and help them to learn better.

Dyslexia Reading Aids

Dyslexia reading aids are a great way to help dyslexic children, at home or in the classroom. New technology can help a child read, write and spell easier. This can also help the child to learn quicker. If they are not struggling to read questions, to get their ideas down onto paper. They can learn new information faster and answer questions better.

Top Ten Dyslexia Aids

Here are my top 10 dyslexia aids.

1. White Board - Simple wipe clean, whiteboard or chalk board. Child can use to write words, then checking spelling is correct with an adult. Before writing the word down on paper.

2. Ruler - Plain, simple ruler used for measuring. This can help a dyslexic child track and focus on what they are reading, when faced with a block of text.

3. Post-it Notes - Great for planning, answering questions and note taking. Rather than child struggling to write full sentences. Simply write one word on each post-it. The child can then use the post-it notes to talk about, or write more about the subject with adult help.

4. Spellchecker - Most computers when typing have a spell checker. Great on-line checkers are Grammarly and Hemmingway app (I use this to write my blog posts).

5. Mind-mapping - Mind-maps are a great way for a dyslexic child to quickly get their ideas down on paper. For a mind-map that can be used on-line, see "Mind-up".

6. Voice Assistant - Found on devices such as Amazon Echo (Alexa) or IPad (Siri). Child can simply ask "Alexa how do you spell Dog?", then be given the answer.

7. Tablets or Phone- Dyslexic children learn best using all their senses. When learning new words, taking in information. Seeing pictures, videos help them remember better. Use the internet on a tablet or phone to show them images and videos.

8. Text to speech - On-line web-sites will read aloud any texted. Great for children that struggle to read large pieces of writing. Use "Natural Readers" for free.

9. Speech to Text - The opposite can also be done on-line. Where the child can speak their answers and it appears as writing on a computer. Try "Speechtexter" for free.
