There are many changes you can make to a classroom to make it more dyslexia-friendly. After reading this article, you'll learn about some tips on creating such an environment. Here are the changes you can make:
  • Have a quiet area. This helps kids with dyslexia concentrate on school tasks. They feel less anxious there.
  • Set aside areas of the board for daily information. Daily information includes the day and date as well as homework assignments. Make sure you write it large enough so that every student can easily see it from where they sit.
  • Post high-frequency words around the room. The measure helps to reduce memory work and allows children with dyslexia to focus on other skills.
  • Have kids with dyslexia sit near the teacher. They should sit near enough to easily see the teacher. These students should also be seated away from talkative students to minimize distractions.
