What can parents do to help their dyslexic child?
  • Parental support greatly affects the achievement of the student.
  • Explain your child's learning differences to him and answer his questions.
  • Set high standards and attainable goals
  • TALK to your child.  These children often learn the best orally, so introduce all the vocabulary and learning situations you can.
  • READ to your child and with your child.
  • Focus on your child's strengths and abilities.  Encourage hobbies, interests, and talents.
  • Set a study schedule at home.  Your child may need homework support from YOU.  Plus, thay may need extra time each evening to complete assignments.
  • Keep in close contact with your student's teachers (Email works great!) AND monitor their grades daily online.  Encourage your child to take advantage of tutoring opportunities.
  • Incorporate technology whenever possible.  Computers with spelling software can be a dyslexic student's best friend.  Encourage your child to learn to keyboard.  Comanche ISD provides multiple opportunities for students to learn to keyboard, but they may need encouragement from you.
  • Read about dyslexia or visit informative websites and see what your can learn.
