Now I know, those of you who use SSRW are going to say, "....Hey! That is not fair, they have great visuals!" and in reality, I would have to agree with you...but for Dyslexic's it isn't doing very much (although it did give me a head start into the Barton's System and properly pronouncing letter sounds, which is very important). Please keep in mind, I do believe this is one of the best all-around L.A. Program's out there to have for regular Homeschoolers. So, for my children who are not Dyslexic, this is a definite program that I use with them!
What I mean about Visuals: They have to have meaning; Or a clear step by step understanding of how to write a single letter for example. I use Handwriting Without Tears because of that. This is an image why:
Something like this is above almost all the work they have to accomplish. It is right there, accessible for them to look at and view while doing the activity!
There needs to be meaning behind the word in order for them/us to understand and remember what that word does or says, even the simple words, including the sounds. That is where Seeing Stars comes in. It gives you a clear meaning or understanding of the word.
