How to help at home
Extra practice with this never hurt anyone!
Create positive reading memories to build confidence in your child.
Projects are less overwhelming for students when they are brken down into managable pieces. Students with dyslexia are no different. Instead of reading 6 pages, start with one or two paragraphs and build up to a larger chunks.
In cursive each letter has their own shape in cursive, especially the easily confusable letters like "b" and "d." This will help students practice shaping letters correctly as well as be less confusing when reading.
Dyslexic children have incredible abilities!
Big picture thinkers
Strong narrative reasoning
Improved pattern recognition
Valuable benefits to specialized tutoring for dyslexic students
Getting better at reading can help your child's self esteem. They don't have to be worried about not being able to read something. They have a greater sense of accomplishment and confidence.
If your child's behavior issues magically appear when they are in reading class or are asked to read something independently, that might be a sign of dyslexia. No one likes to do things they are bad at. If we are there to help and give specialized instruction, those behaviors can have to chance to stop, because your child is understanding!
