Parental Guidance for handling Dyslexic children
The parents of children diagnosed with Dyslexia can support their children in every possible way. They can help them so that the children may grow up to have a career of their own and become independent.
Here are some guidelines for the parents:
Support your dyslexic child as early as possible. Work together with the teacher and counselor to understand her problem and the role you can play in her life.
Ensure that your child gets the special treatment required for her special abilities. She may be different but not unique. Help her to participate in her normal class work and school activities. Do not let her feel that she's different.
Tell her that her disabilities are not her fault and she can do anything she wants, only some desires may take longer time to be fulfilled.
Praise her wherever you can, and yet make sure her siblings do not feel jealous at the special treatment she's getting. Help her to bond with the family.
Teach her to organize her own room, table, work and time.
Encourage her to develop hobbies and be like all other children.
