Dyslexia Resources

  • Lindamood Bell continues to offer its very high quality, evidence-based instructional programs for word-level reading, comprehension (oral and written), and math through daily, intensive, one-on- one online lessons (Note: these programs are not free and are instead quite costly). https://lindamoodbell.com/online-instruction
  • Reading A to Z offers a number of free resources for families to use at home. Please try to focus on lessons that emphasize sound-letter correspondence, phonological awareness, and phonics. When choosing decodable readers, you can filter according to different sounds and word families (e.g., consonants, short vowels, blends) that your child has either mastered or is working on. You can also access high-frequency sight-words to practice. https://www.readinga-z.com/
  • The Specific Learning Difficulties Association of South Australia also offers a number of free resources for families, including fun activities that emphasize phonemic awareness, reading and writing with phonics, spelling, and math. The site also offers free phonics books and worksheets for students of all ages and videos about how to implement some of the lessons and activities. https://www.speld-sa.org.au/
  • Bookshare.org is a free online library with access to over 800,000 e-books for students with dyslexia, blindness, and other barriers to print reading. Students can read books in audio, follow along with karaoke-style text highlighting, in large print, etc. Customize the reading experience to meet your student’s learning profile. For students who do not qualify for access to the full library (I.e., do not meet eligibility criteria with a “qualifying reading barrier”), Bookshare.org is offering access to 10,000 e-books in specialized format for free. https://www.bookshare.org/cms/help-center/learning-center/school- closure?utm_source=partners&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=covid19
