Wooden Alphabet Letters- lower case. These new wooden alphabet letters are even better for the children as they are in the internationally recognised SASSOON INFANT and therefore are very similar to the handwriting style taught in schools. An absolute essential for teaching children with dyslexia and also children who have difficulty with spelling. The uses and possibilities are endless and the letters provide an excellent learning resource for all children, not just those who are dyslexic.
Dyslexic children must be taught using multi-sensory methods and the wooden letters enable them to learn how to read, spell and sequence the alphabet using touch as well as seeing, saying and doing. The letters are of great value to all children and are so versatile, they can be used to build up words phonetically, for sequencing the alphabet, introducing dictionary skills and tracking for those children with visual processing difficulties. They are also the only type of letters that you can use to help children who reverse alphabet letters or have difficulty telling the difference between b/d or p/q.
There are loads of ideas and suggestions for using the letters to improve literacy skills in the manual 'How to Identify, Support and Teach Children with Special Needs in the Mainstream Classroom'.
