    What is this strategy about?
    Some tendencies of children with dyslexia can display as behaviour issues. With some basic knowledge of how to support pupils with dyslexia in the classroom, some of these misunderstandings can be avoided.

    How does dyslexia affect learning?
    Dyslexic children can sometimes have difficulty visually processing words and numbers and identifying speech sounds. This can cause problems with certain abilities such as reading and writing.

    How can you accommodate students with dyslexia?

    Ensure pupils are prepared in advance for their learning. Falling behind may cause embarrassment or knocks to their self-esteem. Supporting pupils to process information from short-term into long-term memory will not only benefit the pupils with dyslexia but the rest of the class, too.
