Sibling Rivalry - Parenting Children with Dyslexia

Sibling Rivalry - Parenting Children with Dyslexia | Dyslexia & LD Discovery | Scoop.it
Conflicts among siblings usually stem from feelings of jealousy or resentment. Your child with dyslexia will feel frustrated if siblings close in age or younger than him are allowed extra privileges that are denied to him because of his learning problems — this may occur because of the need for your child to spend time outside of school receiving special tutoring, while siblings have more free time to participate in sports or social activities.

"Children with dyslexia can have trouble with many aspects of literacy, including learning the alphabet, recognizing letters, following a sequence of directions and mastering the rules of spelling. Having a son with dyslexia, we tried many things to help him with his frustrations. We used a lot of compensatory techniques and one web-based program that is now an app.

Below are six apps that aim to help kids and adults with dyslexia."

Video games tested as a treatment for dyslexia

Video games tested as a treatment for dyslexia | Dyslexia & LD Discovery | Scoop.it

Video games help reading in children with dyslexia," BBC News reports. The news is based on a study that found that video games could be used to treat dyslexia in children.

 

The results of this study warrant further investigation. However, as it included only 20 children, it is too small to draw reliable conclusions from, and many questions remain unanswered.

 

Previous studies have shown that action video games could improve visual attention. So this study investigated whether an improvement in visual attention led to improvements in reading.
