10 Simple Classroom Accommodations

Updated: Apr 19, 2021

10 Simple accommodations you can make in your classroom to support children with dyslexia.

  1. Sit the child at the front of the classroom, near the teacher, and away from any added distractions. At the front of the classroom/ near the teacher, you can gain/ keep their attention. It allows you to sense a level of understanding and you can easily help them during class activities.

  2. Allow extra time. It can take much longer for a student with dyslexia to read and write.

  3. Reduce workload. Instead of 15 story problems, assign 3 or 5.

  4. Write homework assignments down for the child or after they write the homework in their diary, check it to make sure it is correct.

  5. Check their school bag. Double-check your student has taken out all books/materials s/he needs for the day and puts all books/materials into their bag at the end of the day for home.

  6. Confirm understanding. After giving an independent task, ask the child to repeat the task.

  7. Use alphabet and number strips on their desk for reference.

  8. Repeat directions

  9. Stick to a daily routine/ put the day’s schedule on the board and read it out.

  10. Review, Review, Review
