Before going further, let us get to know a little bit about dyslexia. It is said to be a reading and writing difficulty which shows through speech development delays, slow learning of new words in listening and speaking, inability to recognize the letters of the alphabet and writing of letters in reverse.
When these symptoms are not identified and not given proper attention at an early age, it could lead to worst symptoms such as reading slowly or inaccurately, spelling words poorly, reading words in the wrong order or skipping of words when reading, and the omission or addition of letters or words when writing or reading.
In addition, the child won’t be able to tell the correct meaning of individual words and won’t be able to tell time. When a primary school-aged child is unable to read, then he or she will have problems understanding almost all the lessons in school. And when the child gets frustrated and nobody understands him or her, his or her behavior may become destructive or he may sulk into his own world. Thus, it is important to detect or diagnose such difficulty in your child at an early age before it gets worse.
So, what do we do when our child can’t read nor write? Here are some things we should and should not do when dealing with your child.
