Raising Kids with Dyslexia — 3 Keys to Go from Stress to Success
We agree with many of these points, but …
We believe their are 3 Keys to Raising kids with Dyslexia, especially if they are a Visual Learner with Dyslexia
1- The right mindset can make the difference. Most students with dyslexia are also visual learners with dyslexia. When the visual learner with dyslexia is taught to their strengths they can often do far better. They can do even better when …. – their challenges are identified and addressed. This might include attention, working memory, eye-teaming and related challenges.
2- Assessing for a disability is often needed for services from school. What you also want to do is assess for success, where you screen for whether: your child is a visual learner and what else might be holding your child back
3- Partnering with the right professionals. One dad was asked when the best time to work with us was and he said, “Start now!”. For the visual learner with dyslexia and related challenges, you want professionals focused on the whole child
