Different sounds represented by the letter “A”
It is best to explain to a dyslexic child the sounds represented by each letter in the English alphabets as and when you come across it when reading. This way he will not be confused as to why the letter “A” was pronounced one way at an earlier date and now pronounced another way.
I find that this is one of the problems faced by a dyslexic child – not being told about the different sounds represented by the alphabets.
The following are the different sounds represented by the letter “A”.
“A” as in ant, atlas, axe and animal.
“A” as in article, ask, art and arm.
“A” as in around, away, ago and asleep.
“A” as in always, also, almost and although.
“A” as in alien, ace, angel and aim
“A” as in any.
