Intervention and Resources

Homework Help

Once you have identified your learner's reading weaknesses, it is time to find out how to help them! Unfortunately, there is no quick fix for dyslexia. It can take from 1 to 3 years to get a dyslexic learner reading and spelling at grade level, depending upon their level of severity, the frequency of their tutoring or intervention, and other issues. Yet, it is possible!

 

Intervention should be:

Researched-Based

There are many programs out there promoted to help with dyslexia but always look for research to back up their claims! Orton-Gillingham, Lindamood-Bell, and Barton are a few examples of research-based effective programs.

Teacher and Pupil

Intensive

Instruction should be one-to-one or small groups, lessons from 45 minutes to an hour in length, and should take place 5 days a week (but can be done in 3 days for a longer period of time). This sounds like a lot, but these learners need repetition and practice to create lasting memories.

Systematic and Sequential

Instruction should be systematically mastered and placed in a sequential order of building reading skills.

Multi-Sensory

In order to activate several different locations of the brain to help create new connections, instruction should be multi-sensory. This means tactile, auditory, visual, and even olfactory!
