Learning Reading For Older Children With Dyslexia or Learning Disabilities
Five Minutes to Better Reading Skills. And, yes, it does take only 5 minutes a day!
However, you do not want to only do that. Any skill taught in isolation remains that, an improved skill in isolation unless you make the bridge to bring the skill from the isolated practice to real life practice. So, after using the Five Minutes to Better Reading Skills we read a short selection. And the final step is to take notes from that selection you read. That helps to cement in the change that has occurred. Writing is the doing part of thinking so it is critical to do that final step, take notes from what you read. We use Ten Minutes to Better Study Skills to take the notes with because then it is just fill-in-the-blank with the graphic organizer forms. Life becomes so much easier and older children, even adults improve their skills this way, even if they have dyslexia or a learning disability.
