Approaching Dyslexia with Patience and Innovative Learning Materials
Learning disabilities are being discovered more frequently, but Good Sensory Learning has developed a way to work with students with learning difficulties and give them a way to succeed. A.D.D. is one of the most widely known learning disabilities, but another disability that is quite common is dyslexia.
Dyslexia is a learning disorder characterized by a student's difficulty with reading. It should not be confused with low intelligence or laziness, it is merely the way that the brain processes written and spoken language. While this disability is determined by the way the brain processes written and spoken language, it is not only during the intake that a dyslexic student would suffer. Dyslexic students often suffer with writing, spelling and speaking.
Dyslexia is not a difficulty that your student can grow out of. It is a lifelong disability, but it doesn’t mean that they will be incapable of learning. Complex concepts can still be thought through, it just may take a little more time. If you have a student that struggles with reading, dyslexia may be the issue. When it comes to following the sequence of words or annunciating correctly, give it a little time, but if no improvement is found, it is best to seek out a learning specialist and get a professional opinion.
Since dyslexia is a lifelong disability, there is no means of tackling it other than working through it and strengthening skills. The means by which students accomplish this is different for each student, but the use of sensory learning materials, like the ones created by Dr. Warren, has been proven to improve the reading and oral skills of dyslexic students.
