Over the next several months we hope to add more examples for you right here. Check back with us soon…
What Reading Looks Like with Dyslexia
Example 1: This is a third grade girl reading Rosie Revere, Engineer who had, at the point of this reading, had about a full year of Wilson Reading intervention from her school. Notice the letter reversals, skipped words, pauses before even very basic sight words, and guessing at words. Most importantly, notice how she mistakes the word “flutter” for the word “failure” thereby mistaking the entire meaning of the story.
What Writing and Spelling Look like with Dyslexia
Spelling Lists: Notice guessing, letter reversals, frequent erasing, trouble with basic rules of spelling and phonetic guessing.
