    Read aloud to your child. Slingerland, B. Under federal law, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act IDEAstudents with learning disorders are eligible for special education services. The spelling for writing list. Moats, L. Encourage your child by praising his or her talents and strengths.

    Visual defects, such as a restriction in the visual field, can have a substantial impact on reading performance. Difficulties with these skills may cause problems in learning subjects such as history, math, science and social studies and may impact everyday activities. Rote or 'parrot' learning is particularly difficult for dyslexic people, who tend to prefer 'deep understanding', and personalized and applied approaches to study. Early oral language difficulties are strong predictors of later difficulties in reading comprehension. These can help determine whether another disorder may be causing or adding to your child's poor reading ability.

    Treatments for writing problems are in two general areas: the process of writing and the process of composing written expression. Troia, G. However, a lack of help can mean struggling, lowering of self-esteem, frustration with academics, the development of phobias over schoolwork, tantrums, etc. A historical introduction Revised ed.

True dyslexia has specific conditions for diagnosis. What about visual perception or processing problems? This is where confusion about the Dyslexia Definition comes into play. Many schools offer accommodations in testing and teaching to students with dysgraphia, but these students also need ongoing, explicit instruction in handwriting, spelling, and composition.

Visual defects, such as a restriction in the visual field, can have a substantial impact on reading performance. Journal for the Education of the Gifted, 18, Are there research-supported assessment tools for diagnosing dysgraphia?

Careful observation of the child in the school and home environments, and sensitive, comprehensive parental interviews are just as important as tests.

Optometric intervention for people with learning-related vision problems consists of lenses, prisms, and Vision Therapy. You may also want to request an assessment to identify any special needs they may have. Most kids have a few random reversals here and there. The expected outcome of optometric intervention is an improvement in visual function with the alleviation of associated signs and symptoms.
