Goals AVKO has achieved:
We have found out what poor readers (particularly those with dyslexia and/or
dysgraphia) need to be taught (phonics, both basic phonics and advanced
phonics as well as graphics, context clues, writing
conventions, etc.) and what
techniques and materials will help teachers and parents do a better job of teaching
reading and spelling. Over 75% of the words dyslexics cannot read contain
phonic patterns never taught in regular schools. Conversely, over 75% of words containing these
patterns cannot be read by dyslexics.
We have categorized these patterns and organized them for easy teaching.
