Most kids with dyslexia can learn to read with the right kind of teaching. They might learn new ways for remembering sounds. For example, “p” and “b” are called brother sounds because they’re both “lip poppers.” You have to press your lips together to make the sound.
Thinking about the way the mouth needs to move to make sounds can help kids read more easily. Learning specialists know lots of special activities like this to teach reading to kids who have dyslexia.
Kids with dyslexia also might use flash cards or tape classroom lessons and homework assignments instead of taking notes about them. They may need parents and tutors to help them stay caught up.
Extra time for tests is really important, so kids with dyslexia have enough time to finish and show their teacher how much they have learned. Computers help a lot, too. You can get programs that “read” books out loud from the computer or even download recorded books.
