All of us have been experiencing a very common problem of the reading disorder among youngsters or even in grownups through our lives. In spite of intense efforts, he is not able to read or write. His mother is very conscious about his inability, works hard with him and for him still no positive result. The sufferer has many channels to consult through, as a mother at home and teachers at school but nothing works. Words seem dancing and flying in front of his eyes. The sad point of the story is that today’s hard work has almost zero push for tomorrow. Now here the main concern is that what would be the guideline for us to handle the problem readers.
While finding ways to help these children, you should be very focused to make them independent. As a parent, you are going to equip your child to be self-sufficient rather than fixing the very problem of reading or writing as the real world has real-life problems. By doing so, your child will be able to face and solve the numerous reading problems including dyslexia while being robust and confident.
The child is a real copy of his parent so while behaving and responding to any situation, keep this notion in your mind. Your active and patient attitude while going through his journey of hard work along with him will enable him to face the challenges more hopefully and more confidently.
1. Become Their Teacher
As your child has distinct features, color, and body and habits so are the case with his brain. He is very special for you and very different and unique from other children, so his study and learning also need to be very different and unique. You are the only one who can search and find ways to fix the problem and shape him better.
2. Staying Positive
Along with the parents, child’s positive outlook is fundamental while overcoming the problems in learning and reading. Actual problem arises when teachers label the problem learners. In this way, we crush their self-confidence and damage their self-respect. Their hard work must be channelized towards boosting their inner energies to overcome the language barriers.
Parents and children must stick to a policy of promoting the plus points of their children or students as this will help them learn quickly and effectively. They should not expect high targets from them. Celebrating their minor achievements will boost their energies, and one day they will achieve the milestones.
When children become able to know their learning style, then they will work on it and enhance their ability to absorb new things and overcome their shortcomings. There are different training programs also arranged for kids like the dyslexia support program where your child can work on his reading problems and flaws while getting the maximum amount of attention and love while in school irrespective of his performance and results. Once he feels loved he will work wonders.
3. Listen and Speak for your Child
You are the person who knows the real worth of your child. He is very special for you not for others. So be responsive and active just for the sake of your child’s future. You can minimize his communication problems.
4. Help your Child Love Books
Exchanging gifts is a way to make the soft corner in your child’s heart. Once you can make that space, start working on his language problems. His broken and unuttered words can find expression in written words so help him first loving the books and then reading them. Find some quality time to spend with your child, read to him loudly so he can listen and pronounce the same words. This whole sitting not only strengthens the family love bonding but also helps him in paving ways towards independent learning.
