Ah, spelling. If you’re like most parents raising or teaching a dyslexic child, understanding how to teach them to spell and spell well is something that has eluded you. While many dyslexic learners achieve a reasonable standard of reading, almost all dyslexics continue to struggle with spelling throughout their lives. From a practical standpoint, there are two prongs to teaching your dyslexic child to read: remediation and accommodation. Remediation is the building up of weak areas such as the ability to understand phonological principles, including a study of syllable types and morphological awareness. Accommodation is finding ways to accommodate a particular weakness so that a student can perform at their intellectual ability. Examples of accommodations for spelling are allowing the use of phonetic spell checkers or speech to text technology that takes speech and converts it into text. Finding a good balance between remediation and accommodation is never more important than with the issue of spelling.
