Sight words

Sight words will cause a dyslexic problems because these words can not be translated into visual pictures.

 

For example, when we read the word “cat” we can instantly create a picture in our
imagination.

Let’s try the word “ball”.
 

Now try “car”.
 
 

Think Of The Word Cat Think Of The Word Ball Think Of The Word Car

Now picture the meaning of the word “on”.

Now picture the meaning of the word “in”.

Now picture the meaning of the word “where”

A dyslexic must create pictures in order to read.  Here are examples of creating pictures for non-picture words.
