Spelling to Learn
Spelling is frequently the most persistent of the literacy difficulties which challenge dyslexic adults, even those who are able readers. As working on spelling can help the development of fluent writing and also improve word attack skills for reading, a spelling programme is often an important part of any individual learning plan. A structured programme based on words selected from their own writing offers individual learners the opportunity to explore their learning style and develop appropriate strategies which are transferable to other learning situations. The DVD demonstrates a diagnostic approach to teaching spelling to dyslexic adults. It shows dyslexic learners with differing profiles of strengths and weaknesses working with their tutors on individualised spelling programmes.
