Teaching reading advice: Teaching reading to the dyslexic student can be frustrating and stressful for both the student and you. Effective teachers utilize a variety of strategies to help dyslexic students succeed. Try using a sans serif font like Arial or Verdana on printed materials, and put keywords in bold. Break information into small bites. Make sure your dyslexic student has a seat in the front of the class. Use media such as video and audiotapes to support your class work. And no matter what, keep up your support and understanding.
