Which curriculum do parents and educators recommend for schooling children with dyslexia? What about remediation programs? Many parents homeschooling children with dyslexia (as well as parents of children with ADHD) ask these questions regarding curriculum that works well for the right-brained, out-of-the-box learner.
After spending hours researching parent and teacher forums and review sites, I put together this chart based on recommendations of parents who are working with children who have dyslexia. In each category, there is a link to the product as well as a link to one or more forums discussing that product.
This is not an endorsement of any of these products; it simply gives one place for you to explore multiple options. If you have a child with dyslexia and would add something to one of these below, please leave a comment and let other readers know.
By the way, after you view the chart below, you may want to click on this link to a document by a teacher who researched and designed a great reading program for teaching a top-down, whole word approach for right-brain students. Click on the link to open the document; the document explains the process. At the end of the document, she provides a manual for teaching this method.
Foreign Language: Many parents are recommending students with dyslexia to consider American Sign Language for their required language courses. Ldonlineforum 5
