Children who struggle with dyslexia often need instructions in the foundations of reading with phonemic awareness, phonics, and fluency. By giving students a very targeted assessment, I can find out exactly where their strengths and weaknesses lie and then give them instruction in those specific areas. Often, we schedule two 30 minute sessions per week instead of 1 hour. This helps the time go by more quickly for the child and they can stay focussed during a shorter lesson rather than trying to hold their attention for the complete hour. I change the activities up constantly as well, so that students really enjoy their time working with me.
