Extra Support with Dyslexia:

Interventions for dyslexia are closely related to the degree of dyslexia, the personality of the child and any guidance at school or at home.

Tips for students with dyslexia

 

1.Glossary

Give the student the unit vocabulary list when typing/doing the vocab exercises/tests. The vocab list is available as a download (PDF) in each unit. The student then only has to type the word, which is still training, but easier.

2. Writing and typing

Have the student write down the words before typing them, for example in the flip card exercises ( blue card with word) and the exercises where the English words disappear after a few seconds and the student has to type the words.

3. Spell check

Students with dyslexia can use the built-in spell checker in Google Chrome. In Google Chrome, go to chrome://settings/. Scroll down and click 'Show advanced settings'. Go to 'Language and input settings', select 'English - United States' and choose 'Use this language for spell checking'.

Also, we can provide schools with all texts, so they can be read to students by special software, such as Kurzweil.
