About the course:

Commonly, children start learning to read at the age of 4 -5 and by the age of 6 -7, they will become quite avid and capable readers. Normally, children learn and develop skills at their own pace, and it is common that children will find reading challenging, but will be able to overcome them with time and practice.  
 
However, dyslexia is diagnosed when the challenges of reading become an ongoing struggle.  

Children with dyslexia have trouble decoding words, which affects the way they pronounce the words too. In the long run, this will affect their reading, writing and spelling abilities. This is naturally a cause for concern on the part of parents, given the challenges that come with not being able to read and comprehend the written word as others in their age group. The implications for not addressing dyslexia can be quite daunting.  

Dyslexia does not go away with time. Children will require help and strategies to improve their reading skills with dedicated practice. This course aims to provide essential aid for parents to develop healthy and interactive ways to help improve the learning and copying abilities of children with dyslexia at home.
