Spelling + reading + writing = Literacy
Schools know how to teach literacy, otherwise none of us would be able to read and write. Most children, even those with modest intelligence, learn literacy without too much fuss.
So when a child of normal intelligence is struggling, or failing, to learn to read and write, there is something wrong.
Dyslexia is just one of many barriers to learning literacy. It is important that a tutor understands the precise problems each student is experiencing, and knows how to enable the student to overcome those problems.
