Supports and Resources for Teacher and Parents
What is Dyslexia?
Dyslexia affects at least 10% of the population (and maybe more) and therefore on average there will be 3 children in every class that could potentially have the condition, even if it has not yet been diagnosed. It is important that all teachers are aware of dyslexia and how to best support children with dyslexia within the classroom.
Through our work on the Safe Reads project we are compiling a number of useful resources for teachers and parents of children with dyslexia. We intend to update this page regularly with new resources as they become available.
Resources from the iLearnRW project (http://ilearnrw.eu)
Dyslexia-friendly educational software:
Guidelines for software designers and ICT coordinators
Building self esteem:
A guide for parents and non-specialist teachers of children with dyslexia
Tools to help with reading and writing
SaySo is a reading & writing toolbar for people with dyslexia. Using human sounding voices, SaySo reads aloud as you type, or as you browse webpages, Word documents and emails. Produced by Dolphin who are partners in the project.
