As a parent of a Dyslexic child (with Dyslexia myself), I found this video very informative. I’ve been really frustrated with my daughter’s public education thus far. I do my best to incorporate learning opportunities into our everyday life but that doesn’t always help with what she learns in school which is taught in a way meant for her to pass a standardized test. I hope you find this helpful if your child has Dyslexia or you suspect they might. There are some great points made and ways to help Dyslexic students succeed in the classroom. Keep encouraging your child, keep working with them, and continue to help them see all of the ways they are amazing!
If you have a child with Dyslexia, you can use this simulator to get a glimpse of what their day is like. The frustration, confusion, and inadequacy they experience on a daily basis. I even sent this to my daughter’s teacher last year for her to take to have a first-hand experience of what she goes through. I know what it’s like because I’ve been there but over the years I’ve developed coping strategies so I don’t deal with the level of frustration I did when I was in school learning new things on a regular basis every day and my daughter currently faces now.
Do you have a child with Dyslexia? Did you know Dyslexia impacts more than “just” reading? Aside from struggling with things like reading out loud, we generally have a hard time learning to tie our shoes, rhyme, tell time on an analog clock, and following directions.
