Catherine a teacher and assessor explains what dyslexia is and give some detail about how to recognise it in your child.
It is important to have a clear understanding of what Dyslexia actually is when you initially find out that your child could be or is Dyslexic. This short course is free of charge and takes only 20 minutes. The course provides an overview of the possible strengths and weaknesses that can be experienced by a child that is dyslexic. This will enable you as a parent to support your child and make appropriate allowances. There will be follow on courses that will also give you additional information about the more specific areas of difficulty such as phonological awareness or reading speed and how you can support these areas and also approach your child’s school to potentially gain the appropriate additional support. All the courses are in bite-size chunks so you do not feel overwhelmed.
