Education is an important process for children to learn different kind of knowledge or languages that would deeply influence not only their course result but their future. Some students, however, are having difficulties in learning because of their disease or so-called the Learning disability that do not be able to catch up the class as other students. In nowadays education system, we will use various method in supporting those student in learning. Since those students who have Learning disability would stay in the class with other normal students, we called this as Integrated Education. In this essay, I would like to discuss the case of dyslexia and explain how we can help these kind of students by using specific teaching models and skills.
Characteristics of dyslexia
Firstly, we should briefly introduce the factors of dyslexia. Dyslexia is a kind of disease that affect the passion’s ability in reading and writing. They would find it difficult in identifying the pattern of words and write them in a correct way . As a result, student who having dyslexia will be very difficult in catch up the course content as other student because they must spent more time in remembering the word of contents and understand the meaning of those words. It is cleared that their class performance would be worse when comparing with other students. Since we know the characteristic of dyslexia, we should identify what they need in the class.
Basic principle for supporting student
Secondly, student with dyslexia need different kind of support from teachers that bear basic principle. The main reason for those students do not be able to identify the word because they just have rote memorization in learning those words. As a result, we should expla...

...ce teachers have many work to do in school, the supporting team can help teacher to make some notes and class material. They can also be a platform between parents and school that the team should get some feedback from the parents and report to the school that can arrange the resource in a rational way and can support the teacher effectively.
As a teacher, we should offer every student a high quality of education. Dyslexics children also have right to develop their potential through the school education. They are the children of future and they should supported by us before they find themselves as the loser of the society. This essay provide the model and method for the educated professional as a reference to improve the teaching skill and class environment. I believed that dyslexic children can also thrive on challenges and success like all children.

Schultz writes, “Many specialists believe learning a foreign language for a dyslexic is a form of abuse” (Schultz, 2011). I love that quote I think it is a great way to explain to other people what it’s like for a dyslexic to learn a foreign language. I have never heard it explained like that, but I am very happy I have now because this could help explain to people who are not familiar with dyslexia why learning a foreign language is so difficult for them. Fourth, Philip Schultz wrote about the reality of a child who has a learning disability. Schultz wrote about the bullying some kids face each and every day at school just because of their learning disability. He wrote about having to feel apologetic because of having a learning disability. One quote that stood out to me was, “I never meant to be annoying, forgetful, delayed, overwhelmed, and dumb-sounding and –looking. I never wanted to be made fun of or anger my teachers or keep an entire class late because I didn’t understand a concept. But that’s what often happened as a consequence of my learning disability”(Schultz, 2011). I know that those are very true thoughts of a child who has a learning disability. I know this because I have dyslexia and there have definitely been multiple times in my life where I had some of those same
...nts. Many of the students enter the class filled with anxiety and fear. Some arrive with the secrets that they have reading and writing barriers and they are terrified of being discovered in a classroom full of their peers. How will the student react to their internal fear? Some may shut down and drop out and some may just flunk out of school. Reading comprehension and literacy needs to be addressed by the family of the student and educators at a very young age and needs to continue throughout childhood. At the university level, means of instruction for all levels of comprehension must be offered and expanded to address the needs of the students. Addressing the educational needs of all students in the university might create an atmosphere of success and pride for the student, which in turn would result in greater academic achievement and confidence for the student.
Dyslexia has been a commonly known problem in the Unites States. Even though, dyslexia is a mental problem that causes disabilities in reading, most people do not know the truth about it. There have been movies where a person with dyslexia sees letters moving around, yet people with dyslexia do not have disabilities like moving letters around. The truth is that there are plenty of misconceptions. The myths going around of what dyslexia supposedly is, is not the truth. These myths are just misconceptions and the truths about dyslexia are more complex than what it seems like. Dyslexics have different learning processes and different ways of handling the problems at hand.
Dyslexia is a type of reading problem. In Greek, Dys means difficult and lexia means word or language (Goldish 18). The definition of Dyslexia varies based on which research group you are talking to, but one of the most widely accepted ones is from the National Center for Learning Disabilities and the National Institute of Child Health. The Orton Dyslexia Society Research Committee defines dyslexia in this way:
The causes of reading difficulties often arise because of learning disabilities such as dyslexia, poor preparation before entering school, no value for literacy, low school attendance, insufficient reading instruction, and/or even the way students were taught to read in the early grades. The struggles that students “encounter in school can be seen as socially constructed-by the ways in which schools are organized and scheduled, by assumptions that are made about home life and school abilities, by a curriculum that is often devoid of connections to students’ lives, and by text that may be too difficult for students to read” (Hinchman, and Sheridan-Thomas166). Whatever the reason for the existence of the reading problem initially, by “the time a [student] is in the intermediate grades, there is good evidence that he will show continued reading g...
Next, we need to tackle the many misconceptions associated with dyslexia. Many people acquaint having a learning disability as having a disease. This is completely false, dyslexia is not a disease, and therefore there is no magic pill that can cure it. Actually, there is no cure and it cannot be outgrown. According to the journey into dyslexia, “it is a lifelong issue.” However, it is manageable with the assistance and resources, those with dyslexia can continue to keep up and retain their grade level in
Dyslexia is a language-based learning disability (Dyslexia Basics). It is not because a student doesn’t want to learn. Students with Dyslexia are still students. They can still learn and they still want to learn. Students with Dyslexia have problems with the letters in words, and the sounds letters make. The letters can be flipped upside down, turned around and rotated to the eyes of someone with Dyslexia (Dyslexie Font). This can cause students to have problems with reading, writing and even understanding text that's given to them. Each student is affected differently, some students won’t have many of these problems. While other students could have extreme problems in which they are reading at a very significantly lower grade level. Dyslexia
Child A struggled the most with writing, including spelling and pronunciation of words as well as counting and recall of number facts in maths. Provisions that the class teacher and school put in place included intervention groups outside of the classroom, where the child would go with an adult to a separate room to complete the class task or to use online support programmes suc...
A student at Instructional Level will require the teacher’s assistance. A student’s Word Recognition at this level is 92%-96% and Comprehension is 70%-85%. For a student to make continuous progress direct and systematic work is needed.
Dyslexia is now a widely accepted condition that is prevalent in many classrooms. However, defining dyslexia is difficult as it can be described as a continuum. Although experts largely agree that dyslexia is identifiable as a developmental difficulty of language learning and cognition (Rose, 2009). Dyslexia can pose a host of difficulties for the child and can make daily activities and school life very challenging. The NCLD (2013) states children with dyslexia may have difficulties with ‘accurate and fluent spelling, accurate and fluent written expression, phonological awareness, memory, verbal processing speed and information processing.’ As teachers it is vital that we are aware of the underlying difficulties as the child’s consistent underachievement can appear on the surface as carelessness and lack of effort (Hodge, 2000). Dyslexia is not only about literacy, although weaknesses in literacy are often the most visible sign, it effects all areas of learning as the ability to read and write sufficiently permeates all areas of learning within the curriculum. ‘Dyslexia occurs across the range of intellectual abilities’ however, the difficulties posed by having dyslexia can affect a child’s ability to learn (Rose, 2009). Every child has the right to succeed and so the teacher must strive to provide the key for learning and implement effective interventions which develop the child’s literacy skills and help them reach their full potential (DCSF, 2007; DfES, 2004).
Many students struggle with learning disabilities. Two common disabilities are Dyslexia and Dysgraphia. “According to the latest dyslexia research from the National Institutes of Health, Dyslexia affects 20 percent of Americans” (“What is Dyslexia?”) Dysgraphia is difficulty with writing that sometimes accompanies Dyslexia. Students that have Dyslexia and Dysgraphia will struggle with vocabulary, grammar, and punctuation, but there is help.
It is a “reading world” we live in and students should be guaranteed every opportunity to succeed in this information driven society. Children today are overwhelmed with more reading material than ever before on billboard, television, the Internet and at school, causing reading to become a relevant and essential need in the life of every child (Lumpkin 1972). Being able to read has become the core of our information driven society. Yet, reading difficulties continue to plague the foundation of our education system creating a problem that only seems to be escalating. Hasselbring affirms that reading difficulties are a serious concern to our nation’s students claiming that, “as many as 20 percent of 17 year olds... [are] functionally illiterate and 44 percent of all high school students…[are] described as semi-illiterate”(2004). This is a harsh reality to face – a reality that stems from difficulties developed at the elementary level where reading complications arise and usually go unchecked. These reading difficulties are carri...
...ents to make a good reader. Therefore, without a certain piece of reading students skills the scaffolding is unstable. Due to a student’s faulty scaffolding, reading does not work cohesive to make the end product a successfully understood story. This concerns me. If I feel like they are falling behind on these skills and their other teachers, my colleagues, are not teaching them these skills, I will and do my best at making it appropriate for my class. Without reading skills, they will be faced with horrible ramifications from their problems to comprehend and understand the vocabulary words they see in their textbooks.
Over the last eight weeks this writer has learned a monument amount of knowledge in a short period of time. Each module and activity clearly defined each objective covered in the readings.

Before taking this course many things about the laws and right guaranteed to students with disabilities were unclear. Knowledge is power and knowing has opened this writer up to understanding how a special educator a...
Many students have a hard time when it comes to reading. There are many reading inventions that can help students out. Reading inventions are strategies that help students who are having trouble reading. The interventions are techniques that can be used to assist in one on ones with students or working in small groups to help students become a better reader. Hannah is a student who seems to be struggling with many independent reading assignments. There can be many reasons that Hannah is struggling with the independent reading assignments. One of the reasons that Hannah can be struggling with is reading comprehension while she is reading on her on. Reading comprehension is when students are able to read something, they are able to process it and they are able to understand what the text is saying. According to article Evidence-based early reading practices within a response to intervention system, it was mentioned that research strategies that can use to help reading comprehension can include of activating the student’s background knowledge of the text, the teacher can have questions that the student answer while reading the text, having students draw conclusions from the text, having
