Dyslexia is a common Specific learning difficulty primarily affecting reading, writing, and spelling skills, but it does not impact intelligence. It's estimated to affect about 1 in 10 people. Signs of dyslexia can be identified early in school and include slow reading and writing, letter confusion, poor spelling, and difficulty following written instructions.

 

However, people with dyslexia often excel in creative thinking and problem-solving. Support for dyslexia includes educational assistance, specialised teaching techniques, and assistive technologies. 

 

Dyslexia is more than a reading and writing issue; it affects self-esteem and can lead to depression. Our dyslexia correction program, inspired by the US model and incorporating strategies from Dyslexia Scotland, enhances not just academic performance but also boosts confidence, social skills, and emotional well-being in children.

Our Parenting Strategies for Specific Learning difficulties

Going Underneath Reading writing difficulty

One of the key characteristics of Dyslexia is behavioural difficulties like not wanting to do something which they find difficult.

 

While these might seem unusual to others, they are crucial aspects of an Dyslexic child's world. Recognizing and understanding these patterns is the first step towards creating an environment that supports their needs.

The Bigger Picture: How Diagnosis Helps:

A dyslexia diagnosis helps children by enabling tailored educational strategies and early intervention, crucial for effective learning. It also assists families in understanding the child's challenges, fostering empathy and guiding supportive actions. This understanding leads to better advocacy for school accommodations, ensuring a supportive learning environment.

Dyslexia is Not just a Specific Learning Difficulty:

Dyslexia affects more than reading and writing; it can also influence behavior.

 

Children with dyslexia might show frustration or anxiety, leading to acting out or withdrawal in school. Understanding these behavioral impacts is vital for providing effective support.

Why Family and School Involvement is Vital?

Family and school involvement is vital because it provides a supportive and understanding environment for children, especially those with learning difficulties like dyslexia.

 

Active participation from both family and school ensures consistent and tailored strategies are in place, helping the child to navigate their educational journey more effectively.
