Ellen, Masters in Special Education, great with kids and adults

Many students with dyslexia have difficulty visualizing letters within words. Thus, they have trouble with rapidly perceiving sounds in words. This difficulty can impact a student's spelling, comprehension, as well as their fluency. I am trained in several programs which were specifically designed to help dyslexic readers. Two of these programs are the Lindamood Seeing Stars Program and the Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing Program for Reading, Spelling, and Speech. The Lindamood Seeing Stars Program was designed to develop symbol imagery and apply that sensory function to enhance sight word recogn [more]

Joy of Learning

I have learned about this disorder in courses I have taken. I have known a few people with dyslexia. It is hard for them to read and understand what they read. Some letters of a word may look different to them. They have to go back many times to get through a passage of reading. There can be ways to help students with this disorder. Some students are read passages aloud during testing accommodations. This helps them and keeps them from getting frustrated. Hello! I am an experienced, certified teacher. I have tutored students from preschool to high school. I have taught kindergarten, second, [more]

Spunky Tutor - Ready for All Needs

Since dyslexia differs for each person dependent on the severity of the condition effectiveness of instruction must vary accordingly. Although the core difficulty lies in reading words because of a difficulty in processing and manipulating sounds, some students with dyslexia are able to learn early reading and spelling tasks, However the dyslexic student encounters difficulties when the more challenging problems of complex language skills, such as grammar, textbook material and essay reading and writing are required. I have taught dyslexic students in county schools for a number of years, [more]
