MOE gives helping hand to Dyslexic children
Are you frustrated because your child is still having difficulties in learning the alphabet when most of his peers are already reading story books? Are you trying every strategy available just to help your child learn how to read? Maybe it’s time for you to relax because your child may just be suffering from dyslexia.
Dyslexia is a learning disability that is a result of a neurological defect. Children who have this condition find it hard to read, write and spell. So a child who has dyslexia will still have difficulties in reading, writing and spelling even if he is very intelligent and diligent. It’s really sad, isn’t it?
But there’s good news for parents. According to The Straits Times, the Ministry of Education (MOE) is going to provide schools with qualified teachers who can help children with learning disabilities. As of now, there are three primary schools that can provide support for children with dyslexia. These schools will also equip parents so they can meet their children’s needs appropriately.
