  • Talk to them about what they are struggling with and discuss ideas that will help solve problems they may be facing.
  • Join a support group or see a counselor. Having people around you that understand what you are going through and offer support can be a big help as your learn how to be a support your child.

If you believe your child may have dyslexia, talk to your doctor about testing, resources, and support. There is no single test that can determine if your child has dyslexia. Your doctor may use a combination of questionnaires, medical history, psychological evaluations, and  academic testing to determine if your child has dyslexia. Early intervention and a good partnership between parents and teachers are key to helping kids feel confident and successful in school and in future careers.
