 How to Support Your Child If You Think They Have Dyslexia

STEP ONE: Have a family environment that supports time for language.

  • Spend time at home reading.
  • 20 minutes is a good amount of time. 
  • If you read for 20 minutes a day, your child will be exposed to 1.8 million words a year.
  • If you read for 4-5 minutes a day, your child will be exposed to 282,000 words a year.
 
STEP TWO: Build relationships and communication with your child.
  • Narrate what you are doing together.
  • Ask open-ended questions.
  • Ask your child for their opinion on things.
 
STEP THREE: Continue to educate yourself.
  • Never stop learning and building awareness around what to look for and how to support your child.
