Dyslexia - Treatment

No single treatment works best with every child. Experts often disagree as to the best method to use. Treatment methods should be designed for each specific child, depending on his or her own individual problems.

People with dyslexia often need a structured language program. Teachers need to focus on the sound of letters and the way they are put together in words. There needs to be a focus on the rules that govern written language. Emphasis should be placed on the individual phonetic (sound) units of words in speech, reading, and writing, rather than on memorizing complete words.

It is important to teach dyslexic students using all of the following functions: hearing, touching, writing, and speaking. This instruction can best be provided by teachers who have specialized training in programs for dyslexic students.
