What do you do with a child that is dyslexic? Since I want to be a teacher this a very important question. First the child should be properly diagnosed with dyslexia before seeking treatments. Questions to ask yourself to see if the child is dyslexic? Does the child have family members that are dyslexic or family members who have trouble reading and writing? Is the child reluctant to come to school or feeling like a failure in school? Does the child have difficulty with spelling? Does the child miss out words while reading? Does the child have trouble reading out loud? Does the child skip lines while reading? Does the child experience difficulty while copying the school board? Does the child get confused while following directions such as when playing a game? Is the child unable to count backwards from one hundred to zero? Is anyone in the family left handed? If the answer is yes to four or more of these questions the child has a high chance of being dyslexic and should immediately have an assessment by a psychologist or a dyslexic test in order to test the dyslexic symptoms (Bradford).
Once it is established the child has dyslexia the next step is to find the right treatment for the child. There is no actual cure for dyslexia, but there are methods that can help the child. The sooner the child is diagnosed and treated the better but it is never too late to get treatment for dyslexia (Perlstein, 2008). Most schools will develop a plan to help the child if the school is ill-equipped to provide the necessary help the child will need to be transferred to a school that will be able to help. There are more than thirty-six centers in Tennessee that offer help to people with learning disabilities if the school is unequipped this could be a good route to go (Learning Disability Resources Agencies and Organizations Serving locations in Tennessee). People in the centers are specially taught to deal with learning disabilities and with the majority of teachers not having the required skills to handle a child with a learning disability; one may need to go to such a center. Hopefully by the time I am a teacher the skills will be required of all teachers and we will be better equipped to handle such things in the school system.
