Deciding whether a child needs dyslexia tutoring can be challenging for a parent. They may be unsure about whether their child is dyslexic, or is struggling due to another reason. A parent may worry that the child will not get what they need from dyslexia tutoring, or that it may be a waste of their time.
Fortunately, the nature of dyslexia tutoring makes this an easy decision. Most effective dyslexia tutoring programs, such as ours here at Dyslexia Connect, are constructed around a phonics based approach to reading. A phonics based approach is exactly what a child with reading difficulties needs, whether they are dyslexic or not. Many of the children and adults in our tutoring program are dyslexic, but there are are also some who simply have holes in their in their knowledge of phonics that need to be addressed.
So, if you’re child has reading and spelling difficulties, a tutoring program like the one we offer is exactly what they need, regardless of whether they are dyslexic or not. Knowing this can make the decision to enroll a child in a dyslexia tutoring program much easier.
