Dyslexia in Children

Dyslexic children may lose their self-confidence if they fail in school classes. Depending on this, other psychological problems may begin. Unfortunately, there is a possibility that they cannot learn to read and are mocked by their peers. On the other hand, because children with dyslexia are so thoughtful, it is only a matter of time before they are negatively affected by the environment and become pessimistic. When parents or educators are not conscious about dyslexia, they may blame the child who has reading difficulties. Words such as "You can do it if you want, your mind is always trying to do bad things, you don't care, you are naughty" can cause permanent damage to the child. Therefore, everyone who has a responsibility for the child should have a good grasp of what dyslexia means, how to resolve reading difficulties, how to support a dyslexic child, what to do for dyslexia, and so on.

  • ♥ Be patient: If your child or student has reading difficulties, be patient and do not lose interest. Ask him to read the texts aloud. During reading aloud, both the child and you can see where mistakes were made and correct them. Reading aloud is a good exercise for dyslexia.

  • ♥ Motivate: It is necessary to constantly congratulate children with learning difficulties so that their self-confidence is not damaged. Congratulate each success and express that you are proud of it. This behavior stimulates the child's desire to succeed.

  • ♥ Support with games: Let him improve himself with the materials he likes. Children with dyslexia are closely involved in games. Correctly chosen games are dyslexia exercises.

  • ♥ Do not compare with others: This is not just for children with dyslexia; It applies to all children. Do not compare your child with others and remember that children with learning difficulties can be much more sensitive in this regard.

  • Cooperate with the school administration and the teacher: It is not enough just to be careful. Discuss the situation with the school staff and share your information with them about how to treat a dyslexic child.

  • ♥ Focus on special abilities: Children with reading difficulties or learning difficulties generally have special interests that they are very good at. Discover them and go for them. Your child's success will motivate him and increase his self-confidence.

  • ♥ Motivation, follow-up and appreciation: Give your child various tasks. Tell him you trust him and follow up on these little tasks. Motivate her by congratulating her for her work. Give your child 6-10 games (tasks) daily. Your child develops their cognitive skills while doing this fun task. This whole process should be planned to ensure the development of the child with a strong motivation.

  • ♥ Remove distractions: The attention span of children with reading difficulties and learning difficulties can also be quite short. Make sure that there are no distracting items on your child's lesson table. His room is not cluttered either; always keep it organized.

  • ♥ Show that your love is not proportional to success: Do not forget that children with learning difficulties may be introverted due to some of the negativities we mentioned above. Love is such a powerful force, and show your love for it at every opportunity. Don't be sad about his failures and make him feel that your love is not related to his success.

  • ♥ Make learning fun: We just talked about games, but try to gamify things like schoolwork, lessons, reading books as much as possible. For example, you can doodle while your child is studying. You can say, “Let's do our homework together”, and you can do activities such as taking turns reading.
