October is Dyslexia Awareness Month and decodable books are now available in our collection!
Decodable books are books that contain only phonetic code that a child has most likely already learned. Decodable books focus on spelling patterns that the reader can decode, given their existing knowledge of letter and sound relationships.
Decodable books are important for students with dyslexia (or any struggling reader) as these books are able to provide reading practice using the knowledge of letter sounds that they should already know. Reading decodable text helps students build fluency and gain confidence as they become proficient with word-level reading.
Join #MarkItRead this October to support the estimated 10-20% of Canadians who live with #dyslexia. By joining Dyslexia Canada’s annual campaign, you will help to raise awareness of dyslexia whilst helping to fight myths and misconceptions of this learning disability.
