Helping My Daughter Learn To Read

"How can I help my daughter improve her reading skills? She may have dyslexia as well as ADD."

by ADDitude's Education Expert


Children with ADHD can have learning disabilities in reading and dyslexia. I would definitely seek further testing.

Your daughter will need a strong phonics program to support her skills and this help may change her attitude and spirit. Don't waste a day. Seek help now.

And please stop blaming yourself -- move forward and see if from this day on you think positive with her about helping her. Tell her "I am your mom and I will help you anyway I can to be successful. I am here to support and help you."
