Treatment uses a number of teaching methods to help your child read better. These methods include:
Teaching how letters are linked to sounds to make words.
Having the child read aloud with a teacher's help.
Teaching the child to listen to and repeat instructions.
United States law requires schools to set up a learning plan to meet the needs of a child with dyslexia. This plan is called an Individualized Education Program (IEP). You, your child's teachers, and other school personnel will have a say in designing the plan. The plan is updated each year based on how well your child is doing and what your child's needs are.
Medicines and counseling usually are not a part of treatment for dyslexia.
Dyslexia is a lifelong problem, but early treatment during childhood can help. Support from family, teachers, and friends is also important.
