For many parents, the moment their child is diagnosed with dyslexia, a feeling of helplessness takes over and it can be overwhelming.
Teachers may have already outlined areas your child is struggling and falling behind in - reading, writing and spelling, to mention a few.
The first step is to gain a better understanding of what dyslexia is. Dyslexia is a life-long neurological difference, which usually runs in families and includes a wide range of challenges that can impact education, work and everyday life.
There are many different approaches you can take. However, one simple and fundamental skill you can teach your child that will produce results quickly and easily and which can be life-changing is touch typing.
Through her research findings, Dr. Sue Fowler of the Dyslexia Research Trust believes that many children with dyslexia struggle with reading and writing due to visual disturbances. If you think about it, how can you expect a child to learn if the text in front of them is jumping, flipping and moving around the page. Addressing these visual disturbances before they learn, could make all the difference.
