A great strategy to help a dyslexic child read is create a reading window out of cardboard that allows the child to only read one line at a time. You can also use tinted cellophane paper to help cut down the drastic differences between the black and white print.
Kids with dyslexia can have extra difficulty learning sight words. Some of these words don't follow standard spelling rules, so they're not decodable. Others appear so often that kids have to recognize them quickly to be fluent readers. These tips can make learning sight words easier.
