B and D exercises for dyslexic students

These are designed to help dyslexic students who confuse the letters b and d. They include various activities, for example, letter tracking, word and picture sorting, and asking students to write down words beginning with the letter b or d in several different categories. These resources were designed for use when teaching adults using a multisensory structured literacy programme (for example, Alpha to Omega or Hickey), but could also be used for children.

Autism and Special Education Reading Comprehension Clue Cards- US Version

Autism comprehension and vocabulary activity.

This version of the product uses US spellings but a UK version is also available.

This is a set of 15 Clue Card boards- each with 4 different sets of 3 clues, which your student has to read and solve. The first 10 boards have picture answers and the remaining 5 only use words.

For less confident readers an adult could read the clues aloud to the student, or you could take turns reading the clues.

These Clue Cards were originally designed because my my son, who has autism, found it difficult to comprehend verbal descriptions of objects. Initially he guessed separate answers for each of the 3 clues, but gradually he learned to put all 3 clues together to find the correct answer. He now loves word puzzles such as crosswords.

Some of the clues are deliberately more obvious than others to ensure your students feel some success.

I suggest laminating the boards for durability, and using velcro dots to secure the answers.
