If you want a tool that will combine fun and education help children with dyslexia then Dyslexia Quest is the app for you. It looks and feels like a game, but it’s designed to help children work on various educational elements that dyslexic children typically struggle with. This includes phonics, memory skills, and sequencing.

Sometimes, it feels like you are making very little progress with your child on reading. Thankfully, there are loads of resources, tools, products, and information available to help you along in this reading journey with overcoming dyslexia. Its better forRead. Here is a list of state-approved educational assessment tools (from March 2016).

You can check whether specific early reading or dyslexia screeners are listed for your state. Because policies change rapidly, check with your local school district for the latest information. Also, note that early literacy screeners are often not sufficient to screen for dyslexia [ ].

Math. Something as simple as using graph paper can do wonders in improving the learning experience of dyslexic kids, when it comes to math. Many of these students find it difficult to line up numbers properly, so the graph paper can help them do this. DYSLEXIA INDICATORS ASSESSMENT TOOL PAGE 2 How should teachers use this tool?

If teachers have already applied the teaching strategies in the Early Grades Literacy Package for Grades 3 and 4, and the child continues to struggle to learn to read, use the following checklist. Areas Assessed. The following areas should be assessed in an educational evaluation of dyslexia: Phonological Awareness – an individual’s awareness of and access to the sound structure of his/her oral language. Phonological or Language-Based Memory – ability to recall sounds, syllables, words.

The Pearson dyslexia toolkit includes clinical assessments and resources for screening, diagnostic evaluations, intervention, and progress monitoring. To assist the varied groups of professionals who support individuals with dyslexia, this toolkit includes tools used across professional groups and user qualification levels. In addition, it is a helpful tool for goal setting. Some subtests also tap into general pragmatic language skills, but more assessment will likely be necessary. Comprehensive Test of Phonological Processing -2 (CTOPP-2) We find the CTOPP-2 to be very valuable in identifying underlying phonological processing skills and, thus, dyslexia.

tools to recognize the signs of dyslexia and the practices necessary to bridge this learning difficulty. Knowing dyslexia affects at least 1 in 10 people, schools need to be prepared to offer additional support and appropriate interventions for students with dyslexia to be successful (Dyslexia Help). Teachers need training to better recognize.

  • I welcomed all that you have advised us. i avoided having my daughter being taught using words and whole language approach and that is because of your reading program And I’m looking forward to see my kid becoming one of the most excellent student in school soon.

  • When working with a dyslexic student I feel you should sit in the same side of the table. I know teachers are used to standing in front of a class, however, for one on one instruction it is so much easier and better for the student.

  • This is great for reviewing what the child knows already. Particularly how to use silent magic e. This is a tricky concept for most kids but what a great way of allowing the child to show what she knows.

  • Gives me ideas for my OG tutoring kids, and for small group activities in kinder class. Closed, open, silent e drill was something not taught in my OG training so this is great.

  • This is really a performance assessment. The teaching would group these objectives and teach them seperate as mini lessons. I found it fantastic. This teacher is very experienced and models sincere positive reinforcement and modeling. I hope one day to be on her level.

  • This is definitely an assessment/review, not a lesson. OG lessons have a lot of kinesthetic activities in them that are not shown here.

  • Thank you for this webinar. It was extremely helpful. I have a question… where can I find the Morrison McCall Spelling tests? I have googled it but haven’t had much luck. Is it a book I need to purchase, or a download? Sorry if that is a slightly dumb question!

  • Hello, I am working with dyslexic students. Can u guide me about support for this system. From where to download. Any documentation for the same.

  • I am dyslexic and this is what my parents did to me to help me learn Greek and English, while the teacher at school was sticking to “read the hole word ” method and when I was slow or made a mistake she’d scream stuff like ” What’s wrong with you and you cant be like the other kids!”. Schools need more teachers like this lady over here! and probably this form of learning wouldnt benefit just dyslexic kids but everyone…

  • I did not know this was even a method. I teach my son almost the same way, with homeschool. No wonder he does so much better at home than in public school.

  • My girl is reluctant to commit mistakes that’s she`s anxious to read at the beginning. Yet right after Two months followed this reading guide, she has started out beginner novels and reads through herself! The results really fascinated me! The program is fantastic for almost any age level. Research about this reading book on Google. The guidebook’s name is Elena Readoρiz
    nice day

  • Thank you so much for the wonderful explanation! It has gave a great orientation to help my child to improve her words while reading. Please show us more!

  • I just completed an 80 hour OG course at the Fraser Academy in Vancouver. It was fabulous. Now I am using it to work with some of my students at school (I am a learning support teacher) and I am tutoring a student of a friend….amazing!

  • Shame the little girl is writing the number 6 instead of b. If she was shown how to write it correctly that would have helped her discrimination.

  • Hi, I’m Alex and I have loads of videos on my channel teaching a visual method on how to spell any word forwards. Dr Richard Bandler co founder of NLP recommends my book which I wrote when I was 9 3/4 years old. My mum and I have put up many free videos of the words that have to be learned at school.

  • Wonderful webinar! Thank you! Question about the Visualizing and Verbalizing Stories bookDoes each paragraph/story have questions of all levels (literal, inferencial, etc.)?

  • This is very good. I would give this a 9/10. Teacher does a fantastic job of specifically showing what letters to use, My only criticism would be having a correct and incorrect pile visible to the student as you can see it causes the student to tense up a symptom of anxiety.I was especially impressed when the teacher asked what is most common/j/ sound. All in all fantastic job keep up the great work!

  • wait if u add an extra at the end of the word that’s when it changes what the FUCK when we’re they going to tell me this??????? to much to remember!!!!!###

  • The OG method is a fabulous way of ensuring that students gain competence in learning language. Ms. Nolan uses a systematic approach. She does not use inference at all and makes sure that this student can master one concept prior to going to the next. M. Nolan is caring, uses positive reinforcement, and also allows the student to fix any miscues (which allows the student to gain confidence). Fantastic lesson!

  • Do you have a set of instructions to make the syllable cards or can they be ordered? Our centre has a pretty barebones budget so we would likely make them.

  • My son learned like that way. Oa: boat,coat, road, load,coast,roast,boast,toast etc. ea words beat, neat, cheat etc. oi words: oil, boil,soil,coil, etc. se/ri/ous, se/ cret, si/lent, pi/lot, de/co/ra/tion. A kid draws pictures and say loudly. Fu/ri/ous, cu/ri/ous, etc. word families like ish words. Pol/ ish, a/bol/ish, van/ish, fin/ish etc. prefix pre, re, dis, de, etc. suffix like tion, ment,ous, able, ible, etc

  • Also, there is an App that uses Interactive Orthography, helping struggling readers break the words into segments plus cueing letter sounds! HOW TO USE:

  • Dang that girl was going fast in the beginning. I’m in eighth grade and is would’ve had to think about how they should be pronounced. I’m still not sure if I have dyslexia or not tho.

  • I wish there was more Susan Nolan clips like this. I can only find limited ones. Based in Asia I am trying to learn more of how to support my son. Resources are limited or out of budget so this was so helpful and my son is very responsive to her style.

  • I’m watching this because I’m visiting a school for dyslexics tomorrow. I couldn’t help myself rooting for the girl as she worked through her lesson!:)

  • I like Microsoft learning tools because Immersive reader is amazing to uses because with my dyslexia I find reading a struggle but with immersive reader is amazing it does help and I fully recommend it to anyone

  • Florida Center For Reading Research also has some fluency pyramids as well. Curious to see how you use them in your practice I got it based on the recommendation form your book, but not seeing it making huge differences compared to anything else I do.
