How Can You Help Students With Dyslexia to Learn?

Written by on March 26, 2021 in Stuff with 0 Comments

If you are now a parent, you know that having a child has forever changed your world. Back when you did not have any, all you have ever had to worry was about yourself. But now that you have a family, you have put yourself in a position where you must take a great deal of responsibility.  After all, you want to provide them with the best things available.

For the time being, hardships still need to be endured since the Covid pandemic still has not left the world. But if you are having a hard time, then that means your children also are, especially with their education. If they are, then having time to help them will ease learning difficulty, but what if your child is having difficulty learning because of some sort of illness?

Dyslexia is a learning disorder in which your child will have a difficult time reading because when it comes to speech sounds and relating them to words and letters, they cannot. It is also called reading disability, in which the part of the brain where people's language is processed has some problems. The best way to teach a child with this kind of problem would be the Orton-Gillingham approach.

It is a tool that teachers use on students who are suffering from dyslexia. Teachers will develop a well-structured plan that will make use of the students' other senses so that they will be able to read words and letters much more easily. They will also base their approach depending on the individual they are teaching. This is why it is a popular approach for classrooms for over 80 years, especially with students that have the illness.

Students Are Seen as Individuals

Each student has a unique way of learning. It can be through sight, hearing or by acting. Either way, a teacher trained in the

The Orton-Gillingham approach will use these on students who are having a difficult time learning. Teachers will adapt their ways of instructing different students. By teaching students in the way that best suits them, they can master reading and language skills much more quickly.

Using Other Senses in Learning

When you go to school, sometimes the teacher will only use two senses in learning: the sense of sight and the sense of hearing. But since children with dyslexia lack a certain level in their phonemic awareness, an approach where most, if not all, five senses are used in teaching will be much useful. A highly effective approach where most of the five senses are incorporated, students can understand the relationships between words, letters, and their corresponding sounds much more easily. Some examples include making a student say the word out loud, seeing what object the word is, or writing it to promote mastery.

Reading Is Broken Down Into Smaller Skills

There is a challenge for teachers in ensuring each student can master reading in a standard timeline. Reading is broken down into smaller and more manageable skills set in a student's timeline to master it at their own pace in the Orton-Gillingham approach. They can only advance to the next level of skills if they do. Students, in return, feel at ease in knowing that their teacher will not leave them behind.

Education can be hard on our children, especially if they have problems like dyslexia. But teachers and instructors also adapt to each student so that you do not have to worry about your child, not getting the proper education. You can ensure that your child will have no problem learning.
