What Members are saying about Spelling Homework Help
“Thanks, another great e-news from SPELD.
This edition I especially enjoyed Melinda Matthews’ article (Spelling Homework Help p1). At my university I am trying to get greater rigour in our teacher education English curriculum units, most specifically with regard to explicit and systematic teaching of phonemic awareness and phonics for teaching reading and spelling. If I had my way this is the kind of resource I would be encouraging students to engage with and learn from. Another resource I have used and would recommend are the SPELD SA phonics books http://www.speld-sa.org.au/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=105 they are even free!”

Dyslexia: Mason’s Story
Written by Isabella Evans as a part of her Year 7 ‘Personal Interest Project’ in 2013.
Isabella’s aim was to understand dyslexia from the view of children who live with it and write a book that will help them understand their difficulty, so that they don’t feel alone.
The book is a perfect opportunity for you to work through what it is like to have a specific learning disability with your dyslexic child and his or her siblings. It can be used individually, in small groups or the classroom at school.
