    I have a student that I see in intervention that is dyslexic. Do you have any suggestions for reading interventions?

    I have a first grade student that I see in intervention that we think could possibly be dyslexic. Can you give me any suggestions for reading interventions?

    (Let's combine these threads, since they're so similar. Forum policy discourages multiple threads at the same time by the same member on the same topic, on grounds that the discussion is better if it's in one place.)

    What suggestions did the doctor who diagnosed dyslexia have? What specific type of dyslexia are we talking about? What accommodations does he/she have in her IEP?

    I'd love to help, but need a bit more information.

    The first step is a thorough skills assessment, then planning interventions in response to specific strengths & weaknesses. There aren't specific interventions that will work with all kids with dyslexia.

    It all depends on where there area of weakness is - there is no one-size-fits-all remediation

    Orton-Gillingham was developed specifically for dyslexic students. Training is expensive and you have to wait until they are in your area, but there may be videos on the concept on Youtube or something.

    With first graders, I'd be more inclined to try FUNdations. If I had to guess, I'd say the kit would probably be less expensive, too. One of the SPED teachers in my building has had success with Read Well, which is the early elementary version of Language! I've never used Read Well, but if it's anything like Language!, it would be ideal for a kiddo with dyslexia.

    There's also LMB, which I have heard is rather good, though I believe it is more geared towards older students.

    I'm wondering if the OP had any success finding information that worked with her dyslexic student?
