A full multisensory irregular (sight word / non-phonetic) spelling programme based on Orton-Gillingham, consisting of 70 irregular words with original graphics, 11 additional animated videos, stories and templates included. Picture This! Spelling can support any phonics programme and can fit into any curriculum. Teaching spelling has never been this much FUN!
In a world where intelligence is so often measured by our ability to read and write, we do not often make considerations for those who find that particular task challenging. Dyslexia occurs in at least one in 10 people, putting more than 700 million children and adults worldwide at risk of life-long illiteracy and social exclusion. We need to shift our perceptions from a culture traditionally embedded in print, and explore the innovative possibility of teaching spelling with an inclusive pencil-free approach such as Picture This! Spelling.
Picture This! Spelling is extremely versatile and not only targets students with Specific Learning Difference who may not have access to specialised provision, but also Early Years education, English as an Additional Language and those learning English for the very first time.
Picture This! Spelling is an innovative pencil-free approach to effectively teach irregular word spelling using visualisations and mnemonics. There are no known spelling programmes of its kind available to date within the field of education. The programme has been used and designed by an experienced and qualified dyslexia specialist teacher who has been working with students who have severe to moderate learning barriers for the past 17 years.
Picture This! Spelling is a fun, creative and effective spelling programme proven to deliver results, increasing students’ self-esteem and delivering great academic progress.
Not only does it remove the pencil, which is so often a symbol of challenge for students with dyslexia, but it replaces it with a multisensory, tactile approach, which allows the students to freely retain spelling words for rapid recall and automatism within writing.
The illustrations are fun, and not age-specific which means this programme can be used for any primary aged student. It is easy to follow for both parents and teachers and includes lesson plans, graphics, templates, diagnostic and word trackers. The programme is based on solid academic research along with proven techniques which have supported students excellently.
The programme consists of 70 words, each with a unique word story which can be applied to whatever curriculum the parent or teacher is following.
It addresses the word pattern, sequence and shape as well as uses textural feedback and overlearning activities to support retention.
With nothing like this available on the market today, it is the author’s passion and drive to share this fun and engaging approach with students who struggle to spell and retain irregular words.
