Teaching the Dyslexic Childadmin
This programme reveals how the use of multi-sensory teaching can help dyslexic children become independent learners and boost their self-esteem.
It is crucial that children with dyslexia are encouraged to believe in themselves and to become independent learners from an early age. Kate Bodle, a specialist in teaching dyslexic children, works at Ewelme Church of England School in Oxfordshire. She uses a multi-sensory approach. Kate explains and demonstrates the approach in this programme. The importance of teaching continuous cursive handwriting and the need to “overlearn” is also covered.
