Is my child dyslexic? And if so, what should I do about it? It's one of the things we're asked about most here at Read-Aloud Revival, and no wonder. When our kids struggle to learn to read, we worry. Dyslexia is extremely common, and is very often misunderstood. Today, we're going to talk about the signs of dyslexia, and what to do if you think your child may be dyslexic. If you've ever wondered whether your child is a "late bloomer" or might be struggling with a learning difference, you're in the right place. Marianne Sunderland from Homeschooling with Dyslexia is here to give us the lowdown. In this episode, you'll hear: * Does my child have dyslexia?
