Dyslexia

Special methods for people with dyslexia

We use special techniques for facilitating learning for people who have difficulties processing the language with an initial emphasis on oral learning without seeing the words written down.

Later you’ll experiment with ways of forming words so that they are not permanently written, for example with plastic letters or on a small whiteboard where the letters can easily be cleaned off. This practice of structuring words without a permanent record encourages flexible learning and kinaesthetic intelligence.

The use of concept maps enables the student to organize groups of words. Also practising spelling patterns allows students to group together words to make spelling easier (with similar words like, night, right, might, light, sight etc.)

Using analogies, symbols, drawings and metaphors helps us see and remember the words in a different way through our audio-visual memory. It is also scientifically proven that using different colours for different grammatical forms and different aspects of the language helps when organizing ideas and identifying patterns.
