With the right kind of teaching strategies a child who has dyslexia can learn to read and maybe even grow to love reading! Try to allow the dyslexic child to developing confidence and self esteem when reading. Introduce new words slowly and use repetition. The most valuable aid to reading and spelling is to learn the sounds the letters make.
If the child struggles over every word, the contextual meaning will most likely be lost, so keep them reading at their current skill level and don’t push them to a higher level until they are well prepared.
If you have computers in your class, you could use programs that "read" books out loud. Also, if the child has an IPod, you could suggest some level appropriate books to download.
Try to use your school’s resources. The learning specialist usually has lots of to help teach reading to kids who have dyslexia including new ways to remember sounds.
