Building Automaticity for Dyslexic Learners
May 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm UTC+0
In order to read and write effectively, it is important for children to achieve automaticity. In this session, we will look at what automaticity is and why it is so important. We will then discuss ways automaticity can be achieved, beginning with multisensory strategies for learning and then games which can be used for practice without boredom.
The key learning objectives:
• To understand the term ‘automaticity’.
• To reflect upon why automaticity is needed for children to be effective readers and writers.
• To review multisensory strategies for learning
• To find out about games which can be used and adapted to help children achieve the necessary practice.
Outcomes for learners:
At the end of the session, learners should:
• Understand why they need to work on building automaticity
• Have a bank of ideas for multisensory teaching
• Have a set of adaptable games which can be used to build up automaticity for both reading and spelling.
Also parents who want to help their children with learning key words or bs/ ds etc.
