Strategy #6 – Memorizing

As I have said in a previous blog, Children with Dyslexia have very low memory retention. They spend 3 – 4 times more than the average student studying and can have forgotten what they learned the next day.

1- Try no to give open-ended questions to answer. It induces a high level of anxiety for the child and does nothing to help them learn.

2- Don’t make them do spelling tests. They will not remember what they studies last night and it’s an unfair way to evaluate them. Give them sight words as a way to pronounce the word and their recognition of the sight word will help with their memory.

I will talk more about strategies for memory when I talk about test preparation and test formatting.
