When you first hear your child may have dyslexia it can be a worrying time. At Faversham tutors we offer support for your child through our English phoneme programme and our specialist therapy programme. These work alongside each other to help your child to cope with the skills needed to progress in school.
A thorough formal assessment is comprised
of tests in five different areas
Word pronunciation and sentence
These skills can be difficult for individuals with
dyslexia. When trying to pronounce a word, an individual will sound it out in
his or her head. If the letters or sounds are mixed up, which sometimes
happens with dyslexic patients, pronunciation is more difficult. This goes with
sentence formation if an individual is struggling to put words
together, putting sentences together is going to be a problem as well.
This is once again a processing skill. Individuals
with dyslexia may have difficulty with oral comprehension because it takes them
longer to make sense of the words they are hearing. Their ability to comprehend a text is often above average.
