FAQ - THE DYSLEXIA AWARENESS TRAINING COURSE

Frequently Asked Questions

Take a look at our common Dyslexia training FAQs below. Just click to expand the answer.

Is dyslexia a learning disability? Dyslexia is a learning disability as it can cause problems such as reading, writing, spelling, and sometimes people with dyslexia can have difficulty processing and remembering information. However, it doesn’t affect intelligence.
What does dyslexia look like? There are many forms of dyslexia and not everyone has the same experiences with reading, writing and spelling. Nevertheless, most of those with dyslexia tend to have a hard time manipulating the sounds in words, reading might take them more time and they may jumble up words or write letters in reverse e.g. they could read or write the word ‘now’ as ‘won’ or ‘left’ as ‘felt’.
How to diagnose dyslexia?

It can be hard to diagnose dyslexia as people with dyslexia can often find ways to work around their difficulties. However, as a teacher or teaching assistant, you can suspect dyslexia by noticing any of these problems:

- Poor reading skills, despite having ‘normal’ intelligence

-Poor writing and reading skills

-Trouble finishing tests and assignments on time

- Trouble memorising lists or phone numbers

- Difficulty remembering the right names for things

- Problems with directions or reading maps

Is dyslexia a disability in the UK? According to the Equality Act 2010, dyslexia is a disability in the UK because it’s a lifelong condition and has a significant impact on a person’s day-to-day life, meeting the criteria of a disability.
Does dyslexia affect speech and memory? Dyslexia can affect memory and can cause problems with speech. It can affect all forms of language, spoken or written. For example, they may forget words, have a stutter or jumble up words when they speak.
What are the signs of dyslexia?

The signs of dyslexia can be different for each person. There are some general signs to look for in a pupil in your classroom:

- Speed of processing – slow spoken and/or written language
- Difficulty following instructions or forming answers to questions
- Forgetting words
- Poor concentration
- Memory difficulties
- Avoiding activities that involve reading

Our Dyslexia Awareness course goes through the signs and symptoms to ensure your staff know how to spot them.

How does dyslexia affect a person? Dyslexia can affect a person by them having low self-esteem, behaviour problems, anxiety, aggression, withdrawal from friends, parents or teachers. They can also have trouble keeping up with their fellow students in the class.
How to help a child with dyslexia in the classroom?

You can help and teach a child with dyslexia in the classroom by:

- Multisensory learning. This can help dyslexic children absorb and process information by using senses such as touch, movement, sight and hearing e.g. writing words and sentences with tactile materials (glitter, pasta, sand), physical activities to practice spelling (jump-rope or hopscotch), and scavenger hunts for letters and words.

- Seating. Ensure the child is where you can make eye contact, provide support quickly and that they can see and hear you.

- Marking. Ensure you explain the errors they have made, avoid public humiliation and mark their work in a positive way.

- Instructions/information. Give the child thinking time to process the information and make sure the instructions are short and simple.

- Reading. Highlight keywords, use colours and images and use flashcards, word mats and poster/word walls.
