The Gift of Dyslexia

It’s hard to wait for a dyslexic child to get to age 10 to master reading and writing, but that doesn’t mean they will always be behind.  In fact we need to stop thinking the child is behind.  While waiting for the right time to encourage a dyslexic child to master reading, writing, and spelling, focus on their talents, interests and gifts. You don’t have to be able to read to be able to learn. They can become an expert at anything at a young age by watching tutorials and maybe by trying it at home.

If you have a dyslexic child and they seem behind, don’t focus on the things they struggle with.  Use a Fun-Schooling Journal that isn’t heavy in writing. Do encourage copy work and creative writing once a week, but not every day. Model a love for reading and writing, but don’t force it. 

Using Dyslexia Games can speed up the process of learning to read, because we are tapping into the natural talents of the dyslexic mind.  When you tap into the natural talent  (though art and logic) and slowly trick the strongest part of the mind to process written language, a transformation happens. The confusion evaporates.  Many people who “try” Dyslexia Games don’t see the amazing results that others see, and it is often because mom is afraid to let go of standardized learning levels and continues to push the child to keep up with some other language arts program that stresses the child out and activates the stress hormones.  Kids can’t learn when stressed. So if you really want to see results–let go of EVERYTHING that stresses out your child.  Embrace the gift of dyslexia. Slowly add in the educational experiences that bring the child joy, and use Dyslexia Games.

I hope that this story is helpful! If so, share it!
