If you’ve been following along with our “Teaching Students with Dyslexia Series” both here and here, then you’ve learned more about understanding what dyslexia is, symptoms and how to get started seeking help, and you’ve learned about various tools and resources you can use to help teach your student.
Right Brain Creativity
We’ve briefly discussed how the right brain is used primarily by dyslexics – where when others read, the left brain sensors show more activity. We’ve touched on the fact that using simple art techniques with shapes and pictures will help to give your dyslexic child the brain power they need to process the information for reading faster. If you’ve downloaded any of our free learning packs – you are familiar with this type of draw – read – write activity.
We are all creative beings and we each have special gifts. Many who have dyslexia, are especially creative people. They have a knack for art and drawing. There is a direct correlation between the creativity and the right brain power in dyslexic people, and it is a resource they need to tap into in order to help them read more easily.

Creative Learning is Key
Since I’ve been developing these packs, my dyslexic student has improved by leaps and bounds! His little face lights up as what he is looking at on the page begins to sink in. He’s worked so hard to try to read and although he has made some progress, it has been a slow going and painful process. Using this technique, it doesn’t have to be! It really works and we are so happy to share it with you.
We are now focused on using art of various types in all of our homeschooling. Creative learning is the key to helping my son read, write, and learn well.
