Hello. I currently tutor a Year 5 child who has dyslexia. I did a Year 6 practice SATs paper with her this week to gauge an understanding of how she might find a reading comprehension paper. Her comprehension is generally good although she struggled with spelling. She is able to copy but will try to avoid it. She wrote the answer 'Walliams didn't miss a training session' as 'Walliams diden't mis a trang seong'. Would this be marked incorrect as the spelling is far off the actual words? When I asked her to find the actual words and copy them then she spelt training session correctly. Many other words which were in the text were spelt incorrectly such as 'oyl' for 'oil' - but these at least were phonetically plausible in general. Would a child with difficulties be eligible for a scribe or not as she can copy (although reluctant to do so) and has no physical difficulty with regards to writing? Thank you.
