How does analytical spelling help kids with dyslexia?

Analytical spelling is structured oral spelling from dictation--not from memorization. Students listen and respond to spoken words by converting sounds and structures into letters and combinations of letters. Analytical spelling requires students to take words apart and combine them by focusing on sounds, meanings, and grammatical structures. As such, analytical spelling™ is a scientifically and historically proven way to help all students (with or without dyslexia) learn how to read and write because it focuses students on sounds instead of sight.

Teaching students how to spell from sound and write the words down is a highly effective way to help them overcome dyslexia because spelling and writing require intensive focus on sounds and matching sounds to their corresponding letters or letter combinations. Spelling sounds and writing them down trains students to become phonemically aware and to use phonemic analysis in listening and reading.

How does multisensory learning help kids diagnosed with dyslexia?

What do scientists, pediatricians, and teachers say is the most effective way to teach children diagnosed with dyslexia, autism, and ADHD?

Most scientists, doctors, and teachers agree that multisensory learning is the best way to teach all children, especially those diagnosed with dyslexia, autism, and ADHD. Multisensory learning is also called five-senses learning.

What is multisensory (or five-senses) learning?

Multisensory learning combines visual, tactile, auditory, and kinesthetic strategies, allowing children to use movement, listening, touch, and visual cues to understand and retain information more effectively. Because the brain receives several types of sensory inputs, the brain can process material more effectively and help children analyze and understand that material in a positive and even exciting way. This is different from learning styles that became popular several years ago. Learning styles meant a child's preference for how they thought they learned best. That has been debunked. But what's true now and has always been true, and which will always be accurate, is that the brain learns best when it receives input from several sources.


Kids who use their ears, eyes, and hands learn and remember more than their peers. This is true for any learner, whether a disorder or disability challenges that child. But what is extraordinarily accurate is that children who are struggling with diagnosed learning difficulties perform much better when they can use their whole body in the learning process. So multisensory learning can also be called sensory or whole-body learning. In effect, learning becomes a treat when kids are on their feet.

What is dyslexia?

Though there are many definitions for dyslexia, the standard--and most widely accepted definition of dyslexia is stated on the International Dyslexia Association website:

“Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurobiological in origin. It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction. Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede growth of vocabulary and background knowledge.”

What Our Clients Say

Lavon Jenkins

For years I have searched for a tutoring program that catered to the needs of my child. I have tried many different programs and tutors and none of them were helpful. So I decided to enroll into ScholarSkills and I am so glad I did. It’s been a little over 6 months and my child has made tremendous improvements. My child is more confident when reading and is able to read full passages without help from me. If you’re looking for individualized help for your child I highly recommend ScholarSkills.
