Dyslexia-Awareness-Week
Children learning to read
Joann Paldo teaching

Individuals with dyslexia can be taught to read if they are given explicit, comprehensive and intensive instruction. Effective instruction promotes reading success and alleviates difficulties associated with dyslexia. Programs must be explicit and components of reading, spelling, and writing are explained, directly taught, and modeled by the teacher. Individuals are discouraged from guessing words.

The progression is systematic and cumulative where there is a definite, logical sequence of concept introduction and each new concept builds upon previously introduced concepts. Lessons are structured and step-by-step procedures are used for introducing, reviewing and practicing concepts.
