Students with dyslexia or auditory, visual processing, or memory difficulties often find reading and writing challenging.
These students can learn just as well as their peers, but they usually do so at a slower pace. They need more time to process information.
Irene Le Roux, who was a teacher for more than forty years, has seen what happens when educators don’t adapt to the needs of these students. They become frustrated and suffer emotional pain.
That’s why she developed the I Can Read program, which focuses on providing explicit, individualised instruction so challenged students can learn at their own pace.
The exercises use phonemic awareness, phonics, and the knowledge of oral language to identify letter sounds, letter patterns, and the rules used to make up words. The exercises also help students decode written letter patterns back into sounds that are recognised as words.
Whether you’re a parent or relative trying to help a struggling youngster, an educator, or school administrator, you’ll be poised to help students succeed with the lessons in this book.
