Dealing with the fact that your child has been diagnosed with Learning Disability and/or Attentional Issues can be the most overwhelming situation for a parent. With so much information & advice available on the internet, it can be hard to narrow down what would be most helpful for your child’s betterment.
Special Education a.k.a Remedial Education is considered the gold standard approach when it comes to teaching children with learning disability. Since children with learning disability mostly face issues with language especially the lack of phonological awareness – a critical skill for reading.
Thus, children with learning disability (particularly dyslexia) find it hard to recognize words and their sounds. This means they struggle even more when they are reading. Special Educators can help to teach children with learning disability to recognize word sounds. They can also help them with phonics i.e., connecting letters to their sounds, breaking words into their sounds and blending sounds into words.
Once skills like these are accomplished, reading can become simpler and simpler for children with regular practice.
A wide variety of strategies are used for teaching children with learning disability. They can be as simple as rhyming & tapping syllables to using the multisensory approach of using sandpaper.
Professionals such as psychologists, special educators and speech therapists can help your child in these aspects and help make reading easier for them.
