Sample text

A fable is a narrative where birds, animals and insects represent human beings in their activities and point to a moral. Aesop’s Fables are good to use to explain this.

Feelings of inadequacy, frustration and low self-esteem creep into an already fragile personality and often damage personal confidence levels. Spelling is therefore an emotive issue and one that brings emotional baggage with it for the dyslexic pupil. Weakness in spelling accuracy, and fear of failure and ridicule, restricts the pupil on the written page. Spelling and reading, although interrelated, involve quite different skills. Reading is a decoding skill, where a pupil can be helped by clues to work out the word to be read.

This extends to handwriting, which is in essence an extension of ourselves and unique. A weak and illegible script provides evidence to parents, teachers, peers, employers and the pupil that there is a problem, and can in some instances give a wrong impression of a pupil’s innate ability. No pupil wants to have their written work regarded as immature, with this immaturity being reflective of their emerging adolescent self-image. Dyslexic learners can find the actual task of writing difficult. This is for a variety of reasons, including problems with gross and/or fine motor control, poor writing style and a difficulty with the formation and orientation of letters.
