        What visuals are you using? I tutor struggling readers and dyslexic children. I use special flash cards, with pictures and letters, at each lesson. The child must master the sounds before you introduce CVC words and teach substitution.

        Have they mastered the ABC's? Are they forming the letters correctly?

        With the letter cards you can use them to show the relationship between letters and sounds. Show the students how the letters can be pulled apart and put together to form words. You can also show them how to sound out words using their fingers - one for each sound.

        Once they have mastered these tasks, they will be able to learn the blends, the beginning and ending blends.
