Dyslexia Correction by modelling and mastering the meanings of words with clay

Getting rid of the triggers involves using the clay to model a meaning for each of the 217 common non-picture words in the English language.

We look the word up in the dictionary (choosing the first or main meaning, as these little words often have many different meanings), discuss it, think of example sentences, and generally chew over it until the client is able to form a picture for himself of its meaning.

The client then models this meaning for himself (it's very important that its all his own work, so that he can own it, "It's mine because I made it!").

He models the word itself to put with it, and then, making sure his distortions are switched off, "masters" the word.

Clarity: Thinking with meaning while reading

Once the word is mastered, that word will never again trigger a confusion for him. He will be able to think with meaning when reading, and the words and the passage will become clear.

Dysgraphia Correction: writing becoming more manageable

As the number of words builds up, triggers occur less and less often, and both reading and writing (dysgraphia) become more manageable.
