Children can display signs of dyslexia from an early age – as young as 3 – but it is usually not formally identified until the age of 6 and older. There are often times when students are diagnosed during their A-levels or while attending University. Early identification is crucial as, without the appropriate support from an early age, the impact of dyslexia on a person’s life can be extensive. There can be a few reasons why dyslexia can be missed or not diagnosed;
There are still negative connotations surrounding dyslexia as there is still very little understanding in the ‘outside’ community. Dyslexia does not impair intelligence; it is simply just a learning difficulty – it makes learning difficult until we change the way we teach. People with dyslexia just have a brain that process language in a different way. In schools, pupils are taught using structured phonics, which is a good start for those with dyslexia – but also a great way of identifying dyslexia. However, many teachers are still not trained to identify dyslexia in the classroom and when it is spotted, funding for the assessment can often be an issue.
I think my child is Dyslexic If you think you have a Dyslexic child the first thing is to know that there is nothing to be concerned about. There is nothing ‘wrong’ with your child. The sooner your child is diagnosed, the better. Ignoring it can have catastrophic effects on their academic, mental and emotional development. There are over 37 common Dyslexic traits so be sure to use a reliable medical journal (NHS in the UK) or a Dyslexia specialist website (see below) and then do the following:
In a worst-case scenario that the school refuse to assess, you can go to your GP for an order referral or you can pay for it privately.
How you can help at home Dyslexia does not have to be a barrier to achievement. By doing the following can not only help your child but also solidify a positive relationship with them:
Having Dyslexia does not hinder your child’s potential. They can still go to University, have a prosperous career and happy life!
"We hired Owl Tutors to help our American daughter get up to speed on some UK Maths and English questions prior to us relocating from California to London. We were assigned Kelly, and she was fantastic. Our daughter was a little nervous in the beginning and Kelly was calm, friendly and patient, and our daughter warmed to her in no time.
After a couple of months our daughter took her UK entrance exam with confidence, and passed.
We highly recommend Owl Tutors and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Kelly. We hope to use her ourselves again in the future.
