Un-sticking - strategies to help children with dyslexic type learning needs get over hurdles
is the general gist of the concept (click on grid to make it larger).
Making the words from objects that are fun to manipulate such as buttons works really well.
Making the onset and rime words from plasticine (making sure the onset is one colour and the rime is another) and adding an illustration to explain the meaning of the word also works very well.
These resources made with a child in one session can easily be used with a younger child in a subsequent session that may find making them too difficult.
Finally, taking quick snapshots like these during the sessions and compiling a scrapbook is a fantastic way of revisiting words and concepts and really gives the child a sense of achievement over time.
I use many different strategies and concepts in my Learning Support sessions but the Trans-Atlantic Order of Sounds is proving an effective way to "un-stick" those children who are not responding to many other methods.
