  23. 23. “…a person with dyslexia armed with a goodunderstanding of their own particular skills andweaknesses and a set of strategies with which toapproach them can be an incredible asset to anorganization. Their ability to think holistically,make connections and visualize all sides of aproblem can result in them developing novelresponses to the issues in hand.”Adolescent and Adult Neuro-diversity Handbook :Aspergers Syndrome, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxiaand Related Conditions. Hendrickx, S. (2010).
  24. 24. How dyslexia still impacts my life• Still am a weak reader• Still look up words that look even kind of wrong.• My handwriting has gotten better, but still is closer to chickenscratch.• I still struggle memorizing, but if I have a context to apply it to, or canremember where I wrote something down on the page, then I’mmore likely to remember it.• I will not remember you name, I’m sorry. I doesn’t mean you aren’timportant to me, it just takes A LOT of energy for me to do so.• I can, obviously, talk from here until tomorrow, but writing thingsdown is still a struggle. Yay for speech to text!• I need to get instructions in easy to handle bits.

  26. 26. How I teach1. Be yourself. For me, that mostly means letting my nerd flag fly andusing humor in every session.2. I believe in a constructivist theory of knowledge, and myteaching reflects this belief. Ascribing to this approach meansI teach in a way that builds on my students existingknowledge.3. If its at all possible, I make them use the skills/knowledge rightaway. Frequently, this can be done during the information literacysession.4. Make it as real as possible. I do my best to make the context ofmy teaching reflect what theyll be facing when they use theskills and knowledge Im presenting.5. Most importantly, I give them a path back to the new informationand skills, since even the best and most attentive students willforget stuff.http://letterstoayounglibrarian.blogspot.com/2012/09/my-approach-to-teaching.html
  27. 27. How to accommodate dyslexic’slearning styles in your teaching• Present information in a variety of formats: visual, auditory,and kinesthetic– Let students draw pictures and cartoons, not just writing orverbal skills.– Use overview and mind-maps to help visualize whole and all itsparts.– Storytelling, acting out scenarios• Provide more detailed explanations of concepts, question andanswer sessions, and other kinds of enquiry-basedapproaches to learning like project work.• There is a common feeling among practitioners and teachersthat students with dyslexia require intensive remediation byspecialist teachers, but there is growing research that regularteaching methods support learning for ALL students.
