Clicker and Learning Difficulties

Teach and Reinforce Left-to-Right Writing

To teach and reinforce left-to right writing, start with 'forced order' grids.


1. At the beginning, only the left-hand column is active (the greyed out columns do not respond to a mouse click). 


2. Once you have picked a word or phrase from the first section, that column becomes greyed out, and the next column is enabled. 


3. Now select from the last column.  


4. Finally, the only option is to select the full stop. When the full stop is entered, the completed sentence is read aloud. 



5. Once your child is confident with forced order sentence building, they will have internalised the left-to-right convention and can start to build grammatical sentences without the forced order.
