How to Become a Good Speller!
In the Magical I Am Resources Articles, I have repeatedly stated that the Dyslexic (D) and the Struggling Reader (SR) think in a very high percentage of 3-dimensional (3-D) thought. When confused, the D & SR will create and/or alter perceptions within their mind to literally make "sense" of things, whether it be written text or the 3-D world in which we live in.
When it comes to dyslexia and spelling, it's one of the few areas in which I subconsciously understand my talent, and of course, I have passed it on to all my students.
No longer ask your child to spell the word by using either phoneme or graphemes.
Over and over, time and again, when I asked my students to spell a word, they would see a picture of the word in its entirety and usually would be able to spell with a high degree of accuracy. Of course, it takes some time to become proficient at this, but if you encourage your child to go to their strength of learning, then success will evolve.
“Picture the word (letters)”; “picture the word (letters)”; “picture the word (letters)”. It's that simple!
