Spelling - Dyslexia - Sophie's story
« on: December 12, 2012, 05:06:18 PM »
We meet Sophie, a nine year old girl with dyslexia. Sophie talks about how she feels about her dyslexia and how it is a big issue, but does not affect her all the time. She tells how at first she was sad and disappointed that she cannot get rid of it, but that it can only wear off a bit. Sophie has difficulty with reading and spelling. This helps her to feel more confident. She knows that there are some things she cannot do, so she does them in a different way. She has developed interesting ways to identify letters that look similar. She also uses touch and feel to help her tell which letter is which. Sophie talks about not just the things she finds difficult, but the things she enjoys and is good at. The dyslexia does not affect her whole life but only parts of it. Sophie is able to enjoy practical and physical things without problems. Friendship is a key area and Sophie's friends know her strengths. They do not notice her dyslexia in many cases. They help and support her, making her feel confident. Sophie has views about how we should treat each other, in a way that we would want to be treated. First broadcast in the Learning Zone on BBC2 in March 2012 as part of the programme Same but different.
