How to support a child with dyslexia

Dyslexia refers to children who have difficulty reading or writing and don’t make the expected academic progress. Dyslexic students have difficulty understanding the letters in the books. This makes it difficult to understand the rest of the steps.

These difficulties are not related to their intelligence. Dyslexic students may be slow learners, but they are creative thinkers and strong reasoning skills. There are many signs to look out for when working with dyslexic students. There are many difficulties they face, such as:

Copying contents from the whiteboard to the notebook
They are unable to understand the sounds of letters or combinations and therefore cannot read the sentences.
Typospelling mistakes are when words are written in the same way they sound. For example. Instead of shouting, showt
Writing – While most dyslexic students can articulate their thoughts well, they find it difficult to write them down.
Handwriting – They tend to have very messy handwriting due to poor motor control, tension when completing work on time, and other issues.
There are a few things you can do to help dyslexic students.

You have now learned how to spot dyslexic children. However, it is important that you also understand that many dyslexic people are successful because of the emotional and practical support received by their parents.

Do not criticize them. The first step to helping them is to build their self-confidence before you can help them overcome their problems. They’ve experienced failure before and often doubt their ability to learn. You can regain self-confidence by giving yourself the chance to succeed, and praising small successes.

Do not ask them to read the contents aloud. If you are really desperate to get them to read, let them know beforehand which section they will need to read. They may misread words or skip words, which can make it embarrassing.

Do not punish them for forgetting things. Students tend to forget books and sports equipment so it is better to have it written down the day before.

You shouldn’t refer to them as lazy. They are more likely to be productive than average students and they will need to put in more effort to achieve the same results. These are some tips to make your dyslexic student’s study time more enjoyable.

Allow the student to listen to the audio recordings while they read the text.
The student should be able to choose from a variety of genres, topics, or themes. Reading with high interest improves comprehension as well as the enjoyment of reading.
To improve spelling, decoding, comprehension, and spelling, teach students prefixes and suffixes.
Allow extra time for tests
