Sequencing is a specific difficulty for dyslexic learners. Sequencing difficulties can affect visual processing, which causes confusions with similar words (of/for, saw/was, etc). It also affects auditory processing, with sounds being mis-sequenced. It can also affect sentence construction and planning skills for essays and other written work.
How does Steps develop Sequencing?
Sentence Builder – sequencing words to make a sentence, syntactic awareness
Word Search – visual discrimination, pattern recognition, tracking
Spelling – phonemic awareness, phonic knowledge, visual memory, visual sequencing
Spelling Test - phonemic awareness, phonic knowledge, visual memory, visual sequencing
Drop – visual sequencing, visualization
Fireworks (game) – visual discrimination, tracking, pattern recognition, visual sequencing
Pop the Balloon – spatial awareness of the alphabet, sequencing, keyboard awareness
Alphabet Order – tracking, visual discrimination, sequencing, working memory
Word Grid – auditory sequential memory, working memory
Hangman (game) – ability to sequence letters and predict word structure
Letter Chunks (general section) – alphabet sequencing, including reverse sequencing
Number Chunks (general section) – number sequencing, including reverse sequencing
Number Grid (general section) – auditory sequential memory, working memory
Days and Months (General Section) – sequencing days of the week and months using visual and auditory sequencing
