Keywords:Dyslexia, Learning Difficulty, Reading, Literacy, SEN, Special Educational Needs, Paired Reading, Fluency
Dyslexia is a learning difficulty which impacts a wide number of pupils in Ireland. This article examines what we mean by dyslexia and the effect it has on a pupil's competency in reading. The effectiveness of paired reading as an intervention to tackle these reading difficulties is analysed. The author contends that this intervention, while not the only solution, has proven to be an effective teaching approach model which develops the self-esteem, fiuency and reading skills of pupils with dyslexia.
