Have you had sleepless nights worrying about your child’s dyslexia?
Do you feel like you know half the story of your child’s dyslexia (or less) but need to figure out the rest of the puzzle?
Do you wish you could find more dyslexia support for parents?
After all, your child is smart and wants to learn, but he gets stuck sometimes. He has such a hard time in class and doesn’t seem to progress. You know he likes school but gets frustrated when he can’t get it. He feels helpless, and so do you.
And you see signs that he’s giving up on himself and doesn’t want to try anymore. You can’t blame him because you see how hard he works and struggles to learn. You wish you could take it all away and use a magic wand to help him learn.
You feel powerless and unable to help. There’s no worse feeling as a parent, is there? You want dyslexia help for your child, but you don’t know where to turn. The schools aren’t much help because all they want to do is send him to a doctor for medication.
This is where I come in. I’m the dyslexia interpreter and provide dyslexia help for parents who are frustrated with the medical and educational systems. Dyslexia doesn’t show up in everyone the same way, and the signs and symptoms of dyslexia manifest in every person differently.
Let’s look at some of the behaviors of dyslexia. Please keep in mind that dyslexia comes with other health issues as well.
At home, does your child:
• Not understand what you say?
• Have trouble focusing on homework, especially math and reading?
• Hesitate when talking to find the right word?
• Not like to talk unless he has to?
• Ask you to repeat information?
• Respond slowly when spoken to?
• Have problems retelling stories, even those he’s heard since he was little?
In school, does your child:
• Get in trouble for his behavior?
• Forget instructions from his teacher?
• Have trouble answering questions in class?
• Forget phonics or spelling from one day to the next?
• Struggle reading aloud or doing math problems on the board?
• Become easily distracted by noise and other students?
If so, please read through this website and blog. I want to show you the extent of the problems your child may have, so you are well prepared. Many of these struggles are outside the scope of the education system and most practitioners in the healthcare industry.
When you have a good grasp of the issues, you can advocate for your child. You can stand up to the schools and the doctors—in fact, you will know more than they do about dyslexia and how it affects your child every day.
When you truly comprehend what dyslexia is and what it isn’t, you won’t allow anyone to minimize or pigeonhole your child’s problem. You’ll be able to help your child because you’ll know more than 99% of the professionals your child will meet.
