For kids with
dyslexia, reading can be challenging. Spelling and writing can be challenging too. What classroom
help level the playing field for students with dyslexia? Here’s a look at some of the supports teachers can use to help students who struggle with reading, spelling, and writing.
Classroom Materials and Routines
Post visual schedules and also read them out loud.
Provide colored strips or bookmarks to help focus on a line of text when reading.
Hand out letter and number strips so the student can see how to write correctly.
Use large-print text for worksheets.
Use audiobooks like those available through
services like Bookshare, a free online library for students with disabilities.
