‘Step by Step’ is a teaching method devised for dyslexic students to learn reading and spelling. It contains tried and tested approaches to solving many of the difficulties these students experience, and includes worksheets that can be used and developed. It includes guidance to teachers and parents in understanding and addressing a child’s stumbling blocks.
A dyslexic student does not learn in the conventional way. They take longer to absorb the variety of rules that make up the English Language.
This package is divided into three separate books for easy reference, and takes a student through all the stages of literacy learnt at Primary School.
Part One: Basic - contains lessons usually learnt in the first year of Primary School, and is essential for understanding phonics. Much use is made of pictorial symbols to assist the memory.
Part Two: The Magic of Vowels - explores the five vowels and the many different ways they can be combined to make the rich variety of sounds used in English. Colour is used to accentuate the impact of adjoining letters.
Part Three: Building the Vocabulary - leads the student to a more advanced level with sections covering areas such as prefixes and endings, punctuation, patterns of spelling and basic grammar.
