Reply To: Dyslexia & Structured Literacy


What is something new you learned about dyslexia?
It is very interesting to learn which is the part of the brain that does not activate for students with dyslexia, as interesting is to be able to learn strategies that will help my students feel confident when becoming capable readers.

What are some strategies you want to implement into your classroom regarding word recognition and dyslexia?
I already use some of the strategies mentioned in the reading, but would like to incorporate the text-to-speech and speech-to-text strategy with my students since they have not been able to work with it specifically.

What aspects of structured literacy are you already using in your reading practice? Which aspects do you plan to implement?
I work with phonology most of all because most of my students need to improve on this foundation in order for them to be able to continue to the other aspects, and I would like to implement the teaching of syllables in a more specific way.
