For dyslexics students your task will be more challenging compared to other students. Teaching Dyslexia students can be tough because their rate of learning are slower compared to normal students. Here are some tips how you guys help your students to excel in learning.

  • Break a big project up into smaller, less intimidating pieces. Break down the task into several days. Task should not be too challenging. Rather than focusing on result base, teacher should focus on the learning outcome. Don’t force it but learn to deal with it.
  • Do what’s due first.  If you’re faced with a long list of short assignments, it’s easy just to grab them and do them in random order, but that’s not the most beneficial.  Take a minute to prioritze your work, not only by what’s due, but by what you need more or less time with.  Study tonight for the French test you have tomorrow, not the vocabulary test that’s coming up next week.
  • Do not force the kids into the rigid homework trap. Plan ahead. Since breaking large task into smaller pieces, Make learning fun and not too taxing.
  • Outline a task before you start.  For a science project on plant growth, what materials will you need to gather?  How many days will you have to allow for the beans to sprout?  How long will it take you to write up your results?  Think it through in your head and figure out what steps you’ll have to take so you know what you’ll need—and how much time to allow—to get it done
  • Ensure that you involved visual and action method. For example, instead of writing a paragraph about Napoleon Bonaparte, why not tell him a story and ask him to draw a cartoons or even colour the character. Just remember every learning action must have a outcome. By colouring, try to slid in some information about the history character involved.
  • For many people, studying the most important material right before bed makes it easier to remember.
  • Work in a quiet place with few distractions.  Ear plugs or noise-canceling headphones can help to block out noises that compete for your attention.
  • Some students found that chewing gum while taking a test helped them to focus on their work.  Ask your teacher whether you can try this.  No popping bubbles!
