Ms. Lozano from Houston TX is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Overcoming Dyslexia

Help me give my students LCD writing tablets. My students have handwriting practice at the beginning of each lesson. They'd like to save paper and have something to look forward to using when going to their intervention!

My Students

Do you know what dyslexia is? 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.

My students have dyslexia and are struggling. They come from low income families who don't have the luxury to hire private tutors. I see their desire to want to read with fluency and spell correctly. My students have told me they feel embarrassed because they can't read at their age. My students are great kids who deserve the opportunity to learn with the correct instruction I am now giving them as a district dyslexia interventionist.

My Project

My students are behind in their reading, writing and spelling skills. School is very difficult for them and some of my middle school students have given up on learning to read, write and spell at this stage. There is hope and I am here to help them.

I hope that some LCD writing tablets will bring them excitement to practice their writing and spelling in a fun way.

As a traveling dyslexia interventionist, I don't have easy access to print materials that the students need for every lesson. Those materials include reading/spelling deck cards and spelling practice sheets. Having a printer would help my students get the materials they need for their daily lessons.
