Do you have a student that has difficulty reading? Sounding out words? Diagnosed with dyslexia! Any student or adult with dyslexia or reading difficulties can learn to be a great reader if they are taught the principles of Orton-Gillingham! They would learn the 6 syllables types in English and they would learn how to divide words into syllables and then sound out each syllable separately. For example: Can your student read this word: "fantastic"? Try this: 1. First have them underline the vowels. 2. If two consonants come together in a word, you usually divide between them. Have the student divide between 'n' and 't' and between 's' and 't'. The word will now look like this: fan / tas / tic. 3. a syllable that ends with a consonant is called a 'closed' syllable. The vowel in a closed syllable usually makes a short sound ( A - apple - /a/ and I - igloo - /i/). Now the student can sound out each syllable in 'fantastic'. Try it! NOTE: If the student does not know the letter sounds or the basics of putting sounds together, this would be covered first.
