 A great new websiteIn April 2017  there was  the launch of a new and very  interesting and informative website, http://www.dyslex.io/, at the BDA offices!  This is a really interesting and useful site with many videos too. If there are problems getting on to the website you can go there via the British Dyslexia Association www.bdadyslexia.org,uk . This site is also very useful and accurate.

Alison Clarke.  LinkingSpelling and Reading Instruction

This session will focus on teaching spelling as the mirror image of reading, working from the sounds to the spellings, whereas in reading one works from the spellings to the sounds. Teaching segmenting of spoken words is thus vital for spelling, as is building knowledge of graphemes, and then applying this knowledge backwards when tackling multisyllable words with "schwa" or unstressed vowels, saying each syllable as it is spelt (in one's "spelling voice", with no unstressed syllables) in order to commit each syllable's spellings to memory.
