It's not the picture itself, I understand the point the teacher is trying to make. What bothers me is the line that says "Eye cannot tale you enough how unintelligent you look win you use the wrong word."
Those of you reading this blog know that homophones are difficult for our dyslexic students and you know why. But again, because of a lack of teacher training on dyslexia, most teachers don't understand why and calling a child unintelligent is unacceptable to me.
Why are homophones difficult for dyslexics? Well, spelling in general is difficult. Most people think dyslexia is switching letters in a word, but we know that is not what dyslexia is. I was recently on WBIR and I spoke about what dyslexia is and what to look for as teachers and then how to help. You can watch the video here.
Of course the International Dyslexia Association does a wonderful job talking about spelling and dyslexia and you can find info on the Reading Rockets website. Dyslexia isn't just reading issues, it is a difficulty with language and that includes spelling AND writing.
