Can You Read This?

Here is a sample of what someone with dyslexia might read in a textbook. The difficulty of typical reading depends upon the severity of the dyslexia.

Assisting the student with dyslexia can be a challenging opportunity. I say opportunity, because if I can successfully teach someone who struggles with reading, then the rest of the class will follow. One of the critical problems with teaching those with dyslexia is trying to figure out where the holes are in their learning background. Students with dyslexia tend to have it today and lose it tomorrow. This tendency creates large holes or gaps in their academic background. As a teacher, my responsibility is to present my message and ensure that the information is impressed into the student’s memory so that the student can retrieve the correct knowledge for tests.

Words and letters can trade places, disappear, overlap, stretch, shrink, and generally move around.
