Teachers methods of working with dyslexic students : lessons from an qualitative study (English)
Dyslexia is a disability faced by an extensive amount of students in the current educational system. No medical alternatives have been found to improve the cognitive processing challenges presented with dyslexia. Therefore today’s educators are required to make instructional adjustments in their schooling, to ensure dyslexic students an academic future. The purpose of this qualitative study was, firstly, to discover how teachers work with dyslexic students, and secondly, to find out which practices are being used in this field. Data was gathered through interviews of six teachers, whereof two were special educators. The results indicate that teachers choose to exercise different methods depending on the students needs, but the key objective was that these children need to get individual help, enabling them to achieve the school’s curriculum. The teachers emphasized the importance of constantly trying to create new opportunities for students with dyslexia. They also considered various resources such as books, computers, and Daisy players to have a positive effect on the students’ literacy development.
