​The following strategies can be used to support your child:

  • Understanding dyslexia and how it affects reading and writing is an important first step towards helping your child.
  • Talk to your child’s school and teachers. Developing a plan together to support your child will give them the best possible opportunity for improvement.
  • Supporting your child at home, helping them with their homework and using strategies worked out with your school to help them improve their reading and writing skills.
