Dyslexia is referred to as a Specific Learning Disorder with an impairment in reading in the DSM-5-TR.
It is recommended families look for a specialised literacy tuition program that is designed for dyslexic children. These programs should have trained professionals who understand the needs of dyslexic children and can tailor their teaching methods to meet those needs.
Check for the qualifications and experience of the tutors. Make sure that they have experience working with dyslexic children and have the necessary training and certification to provide effective literacy tuition. Look for programs that offer multisensory teaching methods. Dyslexic children often learn better through hands-on activities, visual aids, and other interactive methods that engage multiple senses.
Consider the location, schedule, and cost of the program. Choose a program that is convenient and affordable for your family. Remember, what works for one child may not work for another. It may take some trial and error to find the right literacy tuition program for your child.
