about dyslexia
 
Dear collegues, I m an Italian teacher and I teach Esl to students aged 11-14.
I was wondering about using crosswords and word searchers for students suffering from dyslexia. Could they help? What are the best types of exercises to help them and also to increase their self-confidence with the subject? We are supposed to know everything about this problem and about all the problems children suffer from but I m not an expert and I really need help. Thanks very much in advance.

ciao professoressa !
 
Let s be serious.
 
An important point for this kind of kids.
 
Work with sounds. I mean : divide the long words in several syllabus largely separated and make the students pronounce each sound, each syllabus apart. Then repeat slowly the whole and make the students repeat.
 
Another important point is : WRITE WITH BIG CAPITAL LETTERS AND LET SPACE BETWEEN THE LINES.
 
Add the most possible pictures to help them.
 
Make a match game : cards written in black with short words at the beginning. Then a set of cards with the same words but with a different color for each. And ask the students to play with these cards.
 
When you read, read very slowly and ask them to close their eyes. The brain focuses on the sound. READ THEM THE TEXT BEFORE SHOWING IT TO THEM.
 
Remember SHORT TEXTS WITH SHORT SENTENCES WRITTEN IN BIG LETTERS.
 
Hope this could help.
 
buona giornata a te e coraggio !
 
Marisa. Maryse.
