Encourage your child to read at home. Select material that your child can read fluently. Practice is especially important for students with dyslexia.
Encourage your child to keep a journal about important events.
Read books and become informed about dyslexia.
Home life should be as stress-free as possible. Establish a regular routine and place for homework.
Keep instructions simple by giving one direction at a time. Ask your child to repeat instructions and make certain s/he understands what you have directed by asking, "What do you understand to do?", so that the child has an opportunity to repeat back in his/her own words what action is expected. Give your child time to think.
Break tasks into small chunks. Once one thing is completed, give another direction and allow time for your child to complete that particular phase of the task.
Keep regular contact with your child’s teachers, and request a conference when necessary. Discuss with your child's teacher(s) homework assignments that take unrealistic amounts of time to complete.
