Welcome to the
Dyslexia Helper
You don't need to be a trained educator to follow the simple steps originally developed by Dr. Grace Fernald at the University of California, Los Angeles, in the late 1930s. Fernald's method is a different approach to learning that comprises tracing words, writing them, reading them, story-writing with them, and filing them alphabetically. That's all there is to it. It just takes time and patience.
We've even created an online "Dyslexia Helper" tool to guide you through the daily steps and track your pupil's progress.
Free inside:
  • Teach your dyslexic child to read.
  • Fix letter and word reversals.
  • Learn letter sounds for phonics.
  • Fix mirror writing.
"I can say that I used Fernald's method of teaching reading to dyslexic children at the reading clinics of Syracuse University and at The University of Virginia. The unique combination of visual, auditory, kinesthetic, and tactile stimulation (thus the label VAKT) seemed to "fix" the recognition of words in learners' minds. The method goes far beyond "look-say", the method used with most beginning readers as they study flash cards and read words in sentences. For those children who need more than sight and sound as support in word recognition, VAKT can often provide the hook to memory and recognition that is often missing in cases of dyslexia."
