Do You Have A Child Who Struggles With Dyslexia?
If you are like many parents who have children who struggle with dyslexia, many subjects will give you fits. I have found spelling to be the biggest problem for us. We have tried many different spelling curricula all to no avail. One day we stumbled upon something that finally made sense. The approach it took was through using a multi-sensory approach, teaching students to recognize patterns of spelling based on the rules of the English language, but without all the complicated explanations. It is called Sequential Spelling and is available through a very helpful website www.avko.org. This organization was developed by a man named Don McCabe. He also sends out helpful newsletters.
