Time spent on special education is an important part of a child’s development — especially for dyslexic students in the classroom. As a teacher, supporting the development of a child with dyslexia is a great opportunity. However, it can be a difficult task and it is important to remember that it is not a lack of intelligence or lack of intention from which a student with dyslexia suffers.
Students with dyslexia learn differently. Their brains are not able to store information as effectively as non-dyslexic students, which often makes learning slow, difficult, and sometimes even impossible.
However, under the watchful eye of an attentive teacher – with tried and tested strategies – dyslexic learners can learn and achieve above-average results.
