Parents and carers of learners with literacy difficulties or Dyslexia have a lot on their plate in terms of continuing to motivate their children in the areas that they struggle. This will be getting harder, as the time children have been learning at home extends.
Dyslexia Scotland have put this together to help – ‘Dyslexia Scotland @ Home’.
Here you can find a number of videos to support learning at home. Below is a link to one that I particularly like – ‘Parent masterclass 2 – Providing support at home’.
This video gives a lot of advice around how to motivate children and give them activities that keep them learning.
And if you need even more of a break from Netflix in the evening, there are other videos to help you understand typical features you may see in someone with Dyslexia, and the neuro-science behind it!
