Dyslexia affects how kids develop reading skills. But it affects other skills as well, such as spelling. The most effective way to teach kids with dyslexia to read and spell is to use a multisensory structured language education (MSLE) approach.
Programs that use this type of instruction are often referred to as
Orton–Gillingham based approaches.
If you decide to look into that, make sure the professional uses a multisensory structured approach. You’ll also want to make sure that person communicates with the school. You don’t want your daughter to be confused by the use of different strategies.
You can use some of the
multisensory techniques that reading specialists use, too. That includes things like writing letters in sand or shaving cream. Kids usually find these activities fun, so it won’t feel like “work” to your daughter.
There’s one last thing I’d like to mention. It’s very important that you
have strong communication with the school as your daughter learns to read. Frequent check-ins and
close monitoring of her growth in reading skills will help both you and the school feel confident that your daughter is learning to read.
