If you are a parent or teacher who has experienced that sinking feeling of recognizing you have a child who learns differently than your other kids, you understand our Reading Tricks’ founder’s experience of discovering her son’s learning differences and the journey that ensued (shared in our video blog today). Dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, and language processing disorder are just a few of the language-based learning differences you may be experiencing–with or without knowing it. Recognizing the differences your child has is an important place to start. However, after becoming aware, knowing what next steps to take can be extremely overwhelming. You may want to begin by taking some big steps, such as pursuing educational testing, getting speech therapy, finding outside tutoring, or receiving training yourself. Or you may need to ease into this process with some smaller steps, such as reading to your student each day, playing with sounds and syllables through riddles or rhyming games, or just starting a conversation with someone who has been there. Either way, if you want to connect with other people who are on the same journey, please sign up for our e-mail updates here or join us at facebook.com/ReadingIsHard, where you can connect with a community of people passionate about this journey.
