Have you tried setting the words to music. We teach the alphabet through song and phonetics. I know there are some on-line websites they may be able to assist with this but you will have to do a bit of research to find them.
Dyslexia is a broad term defining a learning disability that impairs a person's fluency or comprehension accuracy in being able to read, and spell, and which can manifest itself as a difficulty with phonological awareness, phonological decoding, orthographic coding, auditory short-term memory, and/or rapid naming. Dyslexia is separate and distinct from reading difficulties resulting from other causes, such as a non-neurological deficiency with vision or hearing, or from poor or inadequate reading instruction. It is believed that dyslexia can affect between 5 to 10 percent of a given population although there have been no studies to indicate an accurate percentage.
There are three proposed cognitive subtypes of dyslexia: auditory, visual and attentional. Although dyslexia is not an intellectual disability, it is considered both a learning disability and a reading disability. Dyslexia and IQ are not interrelated, since reading and cognition develop independently in individuals who have dyslexia.
Accomplished adult dyslexics may be able to read with good comprehension, but they tend to read more slowly than non-dyslexics, and may perform more poorly at nonsense word reading (a measure of phonological awareness), and spelling.
My son has this. They have a machine that can help with this. Try looking at this website http://www.dyslexia-add.org/
I don't know if this will help, but maybe he's experiencing a ton of anxiety and it's "paralysing" his ability? Have you talked with a therapist about Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)? Here’s a link with more info. http://www.abct.org/Public/?m=mPublic&fa=WhatIsCBTpublic
I hope this helps!
I need help finding printable safety signs for the community. I teach mentally and physically special needs adults in a sheltered workshop. I have a gentleman who needs to be able to recognize community signs. He does not read, so I need to teach him what the signs look like. Could anyone recommend a web site I could find them in and print them off. Any help would be greatly appreciated. My e-mail is ***@****. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Judy
