Practical Tips for Helping your Dyslexic Child with Reading (KS1 & KS2)

Are you unsure of how to help your dyslexic child with reading at home?

Perhaps you feel unsure how to approach homework tasks or how to modify them to ensure they fit your child’s learning needs?

Maybe your child is a reluctant reader and you want ideas of how to encourage them in reading.

Join Dyslexia Sparks’ free online support session – Thursday 10th March 10-11am 
for practical tips on supporting reading skills for primary-age children with dyslexia.
In this session you will:
  • Gain an understanding of the importance of engaging multiple senses during learning (multi-sensory methods)
  • Gain an understanding of the importance of revisiting learning and explore ways to make this fun for your child
  • Explore different approaches to supporting the development of reading skills at home, including practical ideas and examples
  • Explore ways to encourage reluctant readers at home
  • Explore ways of developing memory skills to support with reading skills

The session will be led by Sam Buttle, Senior Specialist Teacher and Assessor, Dyslexia Sparks, who will draw upon her experience within specialist teaching and dyslexia to help you develop your skills in supporting your child at home with their learning. Although some basic understanding of dyslexia would be beneficial for those attending this session, it is not a requirement.

Places are free but limited and must be booked in advance. For further details and to book, please visit our Eventbrite page or contact us directly at nicola.markham@dyslexia-sparks.org.uk . A recording of the session will be sent to all registered attendees after the event.

Dyslexia Sparks is Hull and East Yorkshire’s only registered charity for dyslexia. The session is held as part of our free, monthly online parent support group which often features key topics and guest speakers.
