Online Resources for Dyslexia

November 29, 2023

Let's explore some Library resources tailored to support individuals with dyslexia and those who care for them. From expert articles to innovative tools and strategies, this comprehensive guide will empower you to better understand, assist, and inspire those navigating the complexities of dyslexia.

TumbleBooks: This online resource offers a versatile platform for early learners, including those diagnosed with dyslexia. It provides engaging read-alongs and animated videos. These interactive features can be set to play automatically or manually, accommodating different learning preferences. It also allows users to search for books at specific reading levels through the ‘search by Lexile’ option.

BookFlix: BookFlix, a valuable resource from Scholastic, offers a unique tool to support individuals diagnosed with dyslexia. It includes a read-aloud feature that reads the text and highlights the words as it reads. This aids in word recognition and fosters confidence in young readers. In addition, ScienceFlix and TrueFlix resources share these same helpful features, providing an array of educational materials to cater to diverse learning needs, especially for those facing dyslexia challenges.

Early Learning by World Book: Early Learning by World Book is an online resource designed to engage young readers with a wide range of nonfiction topics. What sets it apart is its read-aloud function, which not only reads the text aloud but also highlights the words as they are spoken, providing an interactive and educational experience. This feature promotes literacy development and enhances comprehension, making it an excellent tool for early learners.

Access Video on Demand: Stream educational documentaries on dyslexia, including the documentary titled Inside Dyslexia. Follow along with three people who have been diagnosed and learn about their unique strengths and challenges.

Educator’s Reference Complete: Explore academic and peer-reviewed articles on learning disorders, dyslexia, evaluation and diagnosis, and learning tools. While researchers have been unable to determine a cause for dyslexia, there is lots of great information on how learners can adapt.

Teacher Reference Center: Explore literature reviews, abstracts, and articles related to assessment, best practices, curriculum development, scaffolding, and creating a classroom environment that matches up with students’ individual needs.

We also have a great collection of wordless books if you want to practice reading physical books and telling stories. These can be a lot of fun. 

Hopefully, these resources offer a good starting point for anyone working closely with early learners diagnosed with dyslexia. If you have any additional questions, please visit your nearest branch for additional support!
