The Dyslexia-friendly Classroom

We build tools like Snap&Read™ because they can be deeply effective against the hurdles of Dyslexia, but it takes more than that to build a Dyslexia-friendly classroom. Kindness, ongoing evaluation, building experiences, these things are vital to creating class spaces that can reach the full potential of every student.

  • DYSLEXIA

    Some common signs of dyslexia can often be overlooked, making it hard to diagnose:

  • Black silhouette of a womanlistening on a phone

    HEARING

    Has extended hearing; hears things not said or apparent to others; easily distracted by sounds

  • Black silhouette of a womanholding her head

    HEADACHES

    Complains of dizziness, headaches or stomach aches while reading

  • Black silhouette of a man lookingat a paper they are holding

    VISION

    Extremely keen sighted and observant, or lacks depth perception and peripheral vision

  • Black silhouette of a toddlerplaying with a ball

    MOTOR SKILLS

    Can be ambidextrous, and often confuses left/right, over/under.

  • Black silhouette of a personstanding and raising their handsin celebration

    BEHAVIOR

    Difficulty sustaining attention; seems "hyper" or "daydreamer".

Dyslexic students who feel badly about themselves may not have the social confidence or skill to seek and maintain friendships, and may become withdrawn from friends and family.

Hearing text spoken aloud can make all the difference

Dyslexic students can benefit from triangulating on text, making sure that for every word they see, they are able to access that meaning in other ways, including through images and sound. Often, a simple text reader accommodation can make all the difference.
