Compensative strategies (in objectives and contents) in pupils with Dysorthography:

* Although we can try, specially until the age of 8 –or around that age- to help to pupils to learn orthography rules with visual strategies, from that ages, it´s better to use compensative strategies, for example: allow them to use software to correct the written materials.

* Give more important to oral languages objectives/contents than those objectives/contents related to the orthography rules.
