Dyslexia tutors are often asked by parents how they can best augment what their child is learning during dyslexia tutoring. One of the best ways to reinforce what a child learns during dyslexia tutoring, and help them make further progress, is to read with them.
A lot has said about the benefits of reading with a child over the years, and this wisdom still holds true. For a child in dyslexia tutoring, reading with a parent can be extremely beneficial. When reading with a parent, a dyslexic child gets extra practice reading accurately, particularly if a parent makes sure that they have a child go back to every word that they misread. By doing this, you will help improve their accuracy. In addition, a dyslexia tutor will often remind parents to have the child sound the word out. If your child is enrolled in a good dyslexia tutoring program, they are probably learning how to do this step by step. In the beginning, sounding a word out may be difficult for them, but as they get further along with their dyslexia tutoring, it will become easier. For further tips on how to read with a dyslexic child, try asking your dyslexia tutor, as they will be happy to give information.
