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.
Who should attend?
Reading ability grows with the child and children with dyslexia would advance differently. Children with dyslexia might not show visible symptoms so it is important that the parent is able to monitor and assess the child’s development. In this module, you will gain more insights about dyslexia and how it can affect your child’s learning ability, both practically and emotionally.
It is common to see children with dyslexia responding negatively to reading. This might be due to the confusion that they face when trying to associate words and meanings, resulting in a decrease in interest level. Interest level is vital when trying to engage a child. This module will introduce activities that can promote reading by keeping the interest level high.
While the importance of exposing your child to reading is vital for improvement, we are not limited to the old fashion ways. The other senses of your child are very much helpful to the learning process. Again, this is to keep their interest level high which is crucial for absorbing information. This module will introduce activities that educate the child by triggering their other senses.
What are sight words? Sight words are common words that children are expected to recognize instantly – and, the and it, for example. When dealing with sight words, this is best dealt with by memorising. This module will introduce activities that use effective memory skills to drill on sight words.
