"Dyslexic students need a different approach to learning language from that employed in most classrooms.

They need to be taught, slowly and thoroughly, the basic elements of their language -- the sounds and the letters which represent them -- and how to put these together and take them apart.

They have to have lots of practice in having their writing hands, eyes, ears, and voices working together for the conscious organization and retention of their learning"
