Dyslexia Treatment

Jumaat, 7 Mei 2010

Mohd Daniel seorang pelajar yg menghidapi Dyslexia telah berjaya membuktikan bahawa Dyslexic person can succeed in their major examination. Daniel telah mendapat 5A dlm peperiksaan UPSR & seterusnya membuka mata semua pihak bahawa Dyslexic persons are not stupid & they also like us as a normal person. Cuma cara penyampaian & pembelajaran sahaja perlu dititik beratkan utk pelajar2 seperti ini. Sekarang Mohd Daniel menyambung pelajaran di Sekolah Menengah Sheikh Abdul Malik, Kuala Terengganu..

*Actually, kisah tentang Daniel telah tersebar di dada akhbar Sinar Harian beberapa tahun yg lepas*

Seperti post yg sebelum ni, telah diselitkan beberapa org yg terkenal yg telah menghidap Dyslexia, mereka juga boleh berjaya & terkenal seantero dunia seperti Tom Cruise, Alexander Graham bell and others.

*My lecturer said, if we see close 2 dyslexic child we can see that majority of them have a good looking, handsome and also cute…^_^

Itu semua kerja Tuhan yg telah mengatur segalanya dgn adil, w’pun mereka mengalami masalah yg kdg2 ada manusia yg menyisihkan mereka, namun mereka dikurniakan nikmat yg lain.

di bwh disertakan beberapa cara utk kita merawat Dyslexic Person yg telah dipetik di sini

Sound Hopscotch - Find an empty space large enough for a child to jump or run. Then, you can draw a few boxes with letters on the floor using the chalk, like the example here.
Tell the child that you will call out the sound (not the letter name). For example, do you have 'm', do you have 's'? The child has to respond by jumping into the correct box when he or she hears the sound. Play until the all of the letters are done and rewards the child each time he or she jumps into the correct box. Praise the child at the end of the game. (Y. H. H, Malaysia, a student on the Dyslexia Certificate course )

The 'bed' trick to help with 'b' and 'd' - My dyslexic students have learned to do the 'bed trick' when confused with b/d. They have learned to make the letter b with their left hand (forefinger comes to the thumb to make the circle of the b while the other fingers are straight) and their right hand forms the letter d using the same method. Initially I taught them they could imagine the 'e' for the word bed between their right and left hands. Quickly they learned to apply this method on their own. Now when a student is confused with a b/d, if they do not do the bed trick on their own, I just ask them to do the trick. When prompted to do the trick they quickly realize they have been using the wrong letter and can determine the correct one! . (Cathy, Columbia, Missouri)

Fishing game - Sam and I use a 'Fishing Game' to learn new words. Newly learned words are written onto cards shaped like fish. A paper clip is then attached to each card. These cards are later strewn into a large cardboard cover (this is the 'pond') Sam holds a rod with a magnet tied to the end of the line. When the game starts, his job is to catch a 'fish' and read the word written. He keeps the 'fish' when he correctly reads the word. (M.H.C., Singapore)

Multi-sensory letters - Last year I worked with a child who had difficulty remembering the formation of some letters. He became angry, cried and was frustrated when he could not remember what certain letters looked like and how to write them. I provided him with lots of tactile objects, e.g. pipe cleaners, plasticine, ribbons, clothes, sponge, etc. We worked on one letter a day: he chose one object, e.g. a pipe cleaner, to make the shape of the letter, and glued it onto a cardboard book, which I had prepared earlier. I got him to feel the shape of the letter with his eyes closed, say the sound of the letter and asked him to write it on the same page. We worked on the project for a few weeks and every day we started the lesson by getting him to feel the letter. Each letter was shaped from different materials, so it helped him to remember better. After a few weeks, he could match the sound to the letter and write it correctly. (M.P., Singapore)

They need our attention!!!!!
