Confronting dyslexia - how students and teachers perceive dyslexia within a classroom environment
2005 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree)Student thesis
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to examine the individual experiences of both students and language teachers who have faced the problem of dyslexia within a classroom environment. The second objective was to gain an understanding of methods which were known to the teachers interviewed and how much the teachers utilised them in their daily routine, if at all. I also had the intention of widening my own field of knowledge within the area of dyslexia. The particular students involved both suffer from dyslexia and both have attended comprehensive school here in Sweden, although one of them for a short time lived abroad, under which time she came in contact with “reading recovery”, a method for helping dyslectics to develop individual learning strategies. The method I chose to follow was that of interview technique with both the students and teachers. This method is beneficial in highlighting both the good qualities and the bad qualities with regards to the children suffering from dyslexia mainstream classes. The study sheds light on how it is to both suffer from dyslexia, and teach dyslexics in mainstream school. The results show how there can be great variation with regards to how students are treated in school and how vital it is for teachers who meet students with dyslexia to have adequate knowledge of how to help dyslexics receive as equal a chance as those students who do not suffer from dyslexia. Keywords: Dyslexia, classroom environment, Reading recovery and English language learning.
