Example text

This raises questions about what might be happening in schools that have not signed up to this approach. It also raises questions about the relationship between the practices of individual teachers and the general policies and practices of their school. In the case of marking, for example, some schools have whole-school marking policies which advocate marking separately for content and presentation (spelling and grammar) and picking up on only a certain proportion of basic or key spelling errors for children with literacy difficulties.

Given that reading difficulties are for most dyslexic children the first obvious educational problem that they present with, the focus on reading is understandable. But, whereas most dyslexic children do eventually learn to read, the majority have long-term spelling difficulties (Miles 2007). ’ Snowling (2008) also points out that in the long run it is easier to compensate for reading difficulties by relying on partial cues and semantic knowledge, whereas for spelling there has to be an exact mapping of sounds to written words.

They came to this conclusion after their earlier studies (1994) revealed that dyslexic children performed worse than other children on some tests of motor skills and automatisation and notably on a balance task in which they were asked to recite digits backwards whilst walking along a balance beam. They suggested that, because these skills were not as automatic as in non-dyslexic children, they required more concentration to perform them well and thus in situations in which they were required to concentrate on two skills at the same time this led to a deterioration in their performance.
