  • The signs of dyslexia

    Published 21/04/23, by Laura Hughes

    We wanted to share an article written by our SEN team for the Nappy Valley Net Schools Guide 2022/23 highlighting the signs of Dyslexia.

    If you suspect your child may have dyslexia:
    Ask teachers to send key vocabulary for the week so your child can practise reading and spelling.
    When reading aloud to them, ask them to jot down any word they do not understand or know how to spell onto colourful sticky notes. You can write down the correct spelling later. (A dyslexic child may not be able to find the word easily in the dictionary).
    Younger children may find deconstructed words, written out onto jigsaw shapes, really useful. They can practise putting the words back together and reading the spelling aloud. Then they can practise writing the words, tracing over them using tracing paper.
