Does your child have d-b or q-p confusion?

Welcome to the db-qp confusion kit!

This is such a common error that is seen in children who have dyslexia or learning difficulties. Since I saw the same errors turning up day after day, I felt it was time to develop a speech therapy and education resource that was not only great to focus in on the skill being learned but to also teach how to correct this and understand why the errors where being made.

The Phonic All Stars are a fun way to help kids crack the “db” confusion…finally-do it once well and save the frustration!

The first step is to set a guide for the students to attach the letters onto. We use the Phonic All Star characters and their stories. They may be unusual-quirkly-even a bit silly…but kids remember it! If it is remembered, then it is a hook and secures the knowledge. Join our “how to fix reading” program to find out how this works and how to use the Phonic All Star program properly.

So how are kids going to tell the letters apart if the image keeps flipping in their mind. They need to be able to recognise which letter is correct with each speech sound they hear.

First we need to start with being able to recognise the letters correctly when the students see them on the page.

Reversals of letters are a common error for children with learning disabilities … but it can be long lasting if not supported.

Flipping letters and letter errors can come about due to different reasons and know what they are helps you to better understand your student/child.
