Spelling

Most dyslexic people can learn to read well with the right support, however, spelling appears to be a difficulty that persists throughout life. Putting the right letters in the right order, matching phonemes to graphemes, and applied letter recognition.

Letter recognition

Letter recognition is the skill to call out a letter shown or pick out a letter from a group of letters. This is one of the basic skills in learning how to read and one of the top predictors of reading success. To master letter recognition children need to find letters and say their name outside of context, eg. outside of naming letters of their name (https://www.theedadvocate.org/understanding-letter-recognition-and-its-role-in-preliteracy/). They need to do this accurately and fast to be truly fluent in letter recognition. Learning and playing with letters leads to an interest in their sounds. Learning letter-sound correspondence is a key aspect of learning to read. Because of this, some researchers say that letter recognition, among other components of early literacy, can serve as a starting point for screening children who are at risk of developing reading and writing difficulties (Lenček and Užarević, 2016 – https://doi.org/10.31299/hrri.52.2.5).

Dyslexia weakens spelling skills, even when the child presents no motor problems. By varying the degree of difficulty in words to spell the impact of spelling process disorders on handwriting should be assessed. Often, such individuals are wrongly identified as “dysgraphic”, a condition in which mechanical difficulties affect handwriting. Inaccurate diagnosis results in ineffective treatment therapies and can lead to discouragement in the child.

The core principles of good writing can be ‘’educated’’ into meaningful visual images, metaphors, and icons.  That writing speed is often a productive way forwards, and that remedial ‘slow down’ approaches are detrimental
