Support Your Child’s
Reading and Writing Skills.
A child with dyslexia may have a hard time with their language learning and speech development. They experience reading and writing in a different and challenging way. As a result, they may grow frustrated with reading activities, which are crucial for daily life.
Without proper and early guidance and treatment, a child with dyslexia may struggle with reading into adulthood. Early intervention is important to make sure your child learns to read in a systematic way and avoids developing poor reading habits. This will give them the best chance at becoming a proficient reader.
What Does My Child See or Feel with Dyslexia?
Children with dyslexia may have difficulty breaking words up into their individual sounds. Because of this they may become discouraged with reading and writing. They may experience some or all of the following common signs that bring the most frustration to them:
They may show frustration with reading and writing tasks.
They might not be able to tell the difference between letters that look very similar in shape (ex. e and c) or orientation (ex. b and p).
They may mix up letters in words when writing or switch them around when speaking, even if the word is familiar to them already.
They may struggle to associate sounds to letter and sequence them to sound out words.
They might not easily recognize familiar words and need to relearn them, even if they have encountered them many times before.
They may need to re-read the same passage many times in order to make sense of what they are reading.
Dyslexia is not a visual deficit. Instead, the problem lies with how their brain processes language. There are many types of dyslexia, so to learn more about your child’s individual experience, reach out to us today and book a free consultation with one of our speech-language pathologists.
