Specific learning disorder in reading, formerly known as dyslexia, currently has an approximate incidence of 10% of the child population. Since its incidence is so great, it is normal to ask two important questions regarding its detection and intervention: What are the signs that the child has trouble reading? And, secondly, once detected, what can I do from home to facilitate their study?
Next, we will address these two questions with five simple pointers and five useful techniques that you can use from home. Let's get to know them!
The reading is the common denominator of all the subjects in the school stageTherefore, it is important that these skills can be correctly reinforced to ensure learning, thus avoiding the dreaded school failure.
As specialists, it is important to remember that, when in doubt, you can go to the school's internal psychopedagogue team or to private and specialized clinical centers to be able to delve beyond the following five indicators that can alert us that the child has trouble reading. These indicators would be:
- It was difficult for him to learn the alphabet.
- Makes continuous mistakes and pauses in reading.
- Reading speed, despite training, is still slow.
- Has errors of understanding of texts and sentences.
- Avoid reading in public, being aware of its difficulty.
Study from homeDespite the good intention of parents to help them, it often turns into an odyssey if we do not first consider how we can teach them in an entertaining as well as useful way. To do this, we provide you with the following five techniques:
- Use colors
When studying whether we use a single color, be it a pencil or a pen, it can be little motivating and, especially, little facilitator of visual and photographic memory. When we talk about colors, we are not referring to underlining the entire writing with a single and often phosphorescent color, we are referring to the use of different colors to underline key concepts according to their importance.
- Use diagrams or drawings
Despite being commonly extended the phrase "a picture is better than a thousand words", we continue to study with a lot of written text and little use of diagrams and drawings. Hence, it is important to point out that everything that children are not able to imagine and draw will have very little chance of being understood and assimilated.
- Use images and videos
When in doubt, they have always advised us to go to the dictionary. But in the case of children with reading difficulties, it can also be very beneficial to answer any questions on the internet, with the help of images and videos to facilitate their understanding and memorization.
- Train out loud
The best way to study, after making a brief summary or outline, is to be able to train it orally and jointly.
- Make short final essays
It should not be forgotten that, despite oral training, a final written training is also very important since exams are usually written.
