Applecross Literacy Clinic can help with literacy for dyslexic students.
Many parents contact the Clinic with concerns that their child may have a specific learning disability such as dyslexia. In most cases this is not the case-rather the child has neural immaturities. This means that the child is not ‘ready’ to begin literacy and will need some support to help them develop the necessary skills. For this very reason you need structured learning programs to help with literacy for dyslexic students.
Understanding literacy for dyslexic students.
Some children, however may be dyslexic. It has to be remembered that dyslexia is not an intellectual disability but is the result of difficulties processing information, particularly that which is related to the sounds of language. It is common for these children to recognise a word one day and not the next, to forget how to spell words very quickly and to spell the same word several different ways within the same passage. They have trouble putting their ideas down on paper, but can verbalise them quite well. This is why literacy for dyslexic students needs a unique approach in the learning process.

Unique learning to help literacy for dyslexic students.
While there is no ‘quick fix’ for dyslexia, it must be remembered that children with dyslexia learn differently. They are able to learn when given a highly structured and sequential program-designed for their individual needs. The Clinic aims to find learning methods suitable for the individual.
