According to the British Dyslexia Association, Dyslexia is a learning difficulty that primarily affects the skills involved in accurate and fluent word reading and spelling. Characteristic features of dyslexia are difficulties in phonological awareness, verbal memory, and verbal processing speed. Many individuals with dyslexia also have difficulty processing and remembering information they see and hear, which can then affect their learning and the acquisition of literacy skills.

Difficulty in Learning

Did you know: Dyslexia is a condition that often runs in families. As it is linked to genes, an individual is more likely to have dyslexia if their parents, siblings, or other external family members have it.

Early signs of Dyslexia could include

  • Difficulty learning nursery rhymes
  • Difficulty recognizing familiar/high frequency words
  • Reading is hesitant and effortful
  • Failure to understand what is being read
  • Misreads common words
  • Substitutes words of similar meaning
  • Ignoring punctuation
  • Loses place in a line of print

How to Help my Child with Dyslexia at Home
  1. Practice Phonics Practice phonics
    Individuals with dyslexia have phonological deficit. The first step to improving phonological awareness is rhyme awareness. Practice and sing nursery rhymes for younger kids and work on smaller units of sounds such as syllabus/ phonemes with slightly older kids. This enables them to form better concrete associations between print and the sounds they hear.

  2. Reading with your child.
    Take turns reading out loud books of interest to your child. Encourage your child to read every day for 10-20 minutes. Ensure that text is appropriate for their reading level, as this will help with vocabulary and comprehension development. Talk about what has been read and ask open ended questions to foster active engagement, stimulate discussions, build on creative and critical thinking skills.

  3. Play word games Play word games/activities
    Playing games like Scrabble, Hangman, Jeopardy-like games helps increase lost or forgotten vocabulary and introduce new words that your child might otherwise never get to know. As your child expands their vocabulary library, it becomes easier to organize and express thoughts, improve on spelling, train concentration/cognitive skills, improve memory and not to mention building up on their own self-confidence.

  4. Multisensory learning
    Make learning a multisensory experience. Instead of the typical pencil and paper, try using a variety of other materials such as magnetic alphabets, sand, dough, and even whipped cream to form letters. As you include the other senses, your child may retain more of what they see, hear, say, and do.

  5. Celebrate Success Celebrate success and embrace
    Parent's understanding and support is crucial when building confidence in their child. Provide opportunities to celebrate their strengths, successes, and other positive attributes so that they are aware of their own strengths and skill sets. Encourage an open communication regarding difficulties and struggles, as it allows for acceptance and understanding of problems as well as ways in which they can compensate for them.
