The link below is to a great article giving ten simple strategies that mainstream teachers can use to support senior phase learners with dyslexia in their classroom.
- Seat student in an area of classroom free from busy displays and distractions. Try to keep the area around the whiteboard / IWB ‘clutter free’.
- Teach/use very clear classroom routines, e.g. lining up at the start, equipment check, students holding an object when it is their turn to talk.
- Sit the student nearer to the teacher / support staff in the classroom.
- Sit the student nearer to chatty but positive, generally settled peers.
