Using Multisensory Learning for Dyslexia

Part of the Overcoming Dyslexia For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Dyslexics respond well to multisensory methods of learning which use a hands-on approach engaging a few senses together at the same time. Help your child combat dyslexia with multisensory learning at home by playing a lot of hands-on and physical games, fit drawing and model-making into homework, and saying out loud the words she reads and writes. Also, when your child begins to learn letters and words have them:

  • draw their shapes in different mediums, like sugar and pudding

  • trace over them on unusual textures, like sandpaper

  • construct 3D models of letters out of modeling clay
