In many public school systems, Dyslexia is still not getting the attention it deserves. This is despite the fact that the condition has been known and described for about 130 years.
For most of my professional life, I have been teaching in Denmark.
In Denmark, there is a lot of focus on assisting children with learning difficulties.
Still, I often met students in my classroom that were dyslectic and did not get enough assistance.
Many of them went through their entire school career without being spotted.
This can have serious consequences for their self-esteem personal development.
In this article, I would like to give some simple tools a teacher can use with dyslectic students.
