Dyslexic boy of 8....I need help!!

    Hi there

    I have been tutoring a boy for a year and he has recently been diagnosed with dyslexia. I have always found him a challenge to tutor.... he doesn’t want to be there, he doesn’t like reading or writing, he point-blank refuses to do most of what I ask. We do get on well but he often just wants to chat about school and stuff.

    I try the multi sensory approach but i’m A big believer in systematic approaches but because he refuses to do so much, I’m struggling to assess/build on previous knowledge.

    Has anyone got any practical activities we could do? I’m beginning to think I may not be the best tutor fore him, although I try very hard.

    Thanks xx

    Ask to see his dyslexia assessment report as that will highlight the areas he need to work on. Then you can find activities to meet his needs.
