Course that helps parents deal with dyslexia
July 17, 2016
The Madras Dyslexia Association conducts a six-week program that helps identify and train children with specific learning disabilities. It also has a course that helps equip parents with strategy and skills to help them deal with dyslexia.
The course was started last year and the number of those who have signed up has risen this year from 16 to 19.
Trainers at the MDA say that this is a positive sign as parents play a crucial role in providing assistance to children with dyslexia. With an estimated 10% of all school students in India facing some kind of learning disability, there are a large number of children who need help. There is a need to empower parents as kids spend more time at home than at school.
