This is a true fact that we talk constantly about finding different ways to reduce the mental energy a Dyslexic student or adult expends when they are doing cognitive tasks. Basically, the less energy used for processing, the more can be devoted to memory, comprehension and using what is learned. So to accomplish this, we need to focus on several area of Dyslexic’s learning process, life, self-esteem and their personal perception of anything they are experiencing.
Visual Auditory learning process is the best way to learn, hear and listening. They prefer talking about a situation; express emotions verbally, enjoy listening, watching visual demonstration, have intense concentration and ability to visually imagine information, learn best through verbal instruction, move lips or sub-vocalize when reading, remember auditory repetition, study well with a friend to discuss material.
Visual and auditory is two different things. Visual learning is seeing something (like a diagram, video, or chart that walks one through learning and comprehending a topic. Auditory is hearing information and being able to comprehend it that way without having to see it.
Accommodation For Young Children: Best Way That Dyslexics Can Learn Based On Visual Auditory:
- Short lectures of 10 minutes or less, followed by verbal interaction, help the dyslexics to learn or hear. This is only possible for pre-k to second grade. Lectures will not be able to be 10 minutes after that because there is so much material that needs to be covered. What would be good for older kids is to have half of the class be a lecture and then reinforce it with an alternate way of learning as stated. Rhymes and chants are useful in teaching skills. Include music, or auditory cues to signal schedule changes or transitions.
- Visual Auditory learners understand new ideas and concepts best when they hear the information. They learn a song easily just from hearing their teacher sing it, or who can follow directions to letter after being told only once or twice what to do.
- When learning about a new math concept, dyslexic’s learners will remember the information if they can listen to the teacher explains it or sing it and answer their questions. This is where it may be useful to record lectures.
- Children with this Visual Auditory learning step can grasp information presented in a chart or graph, but they may grow impatient listening to an explanation. That is only because visual learners rely preliminary on their sense of sight to take in information, understand it, and remember it. And if they do not see it, they are not be able to comprehend it.
- A Visual Auditory learner will grasp material more quickly by reading about it such as arithmetic in a math book, watching him or her teacher to solve a sample problem on the black board, or seeing them solve the problem with concentrate materials.
