Reply To: Dyslexia


I have ADHD and I have trouble with reading as well. What I find helpful is listening to audio books instead of reading. If you can’t find audiobook textbooks then see if you can record the lessons of the teachers so that she can listen to the notes instead of reading them. Another wonderful tool is read and write. It’s a chrome extension and you can find it in the web store. It allows you to listen to documents instead of reading them. For writing, read and write allows you to speak into your computer and words will be written from what you say. And I can see why she has trouble being motivated, try getting her to do projects on things that interest her, and make it so that she wants to learn instead of and assignment. Example: think of it as a movie, the assignment is the trailer and her job is to unlock all the information she needs to create a movie. I can totally relate to struggles with reading so I hope she knows that she isn’t facing this alone. All the best😊
