TUNE IN: APPLE PODCASTS | STITCHER | SPOTIFY
Children with dyslexia work so hard during the school year. School is hard and the days are long. Summer is a time to relax, refuel, and recharge – for you and your child.
But, you may be thinking . . . Can my child really take off the summer? Will they fall behind and be lost in the fall? How urgent is remediation this summer? What kind and how much remediation does my child need?
Summer is all about balance.
Summer is a time for fun and relaxation. Kyle Redford wrote an article
Taking Time for Summer Fun, The Yale Center for Dyslexia and Creativity
Kyle notes that scientific data clearly show that many children, especially dyslexic boys and girls, lose reading skills over the summer. In a dyslexic child, written words are often still transient, temporary. It is common for a beginning reader to read the word correctly and yet find that five minutes later she will not be able to decipher that very same word.
3 ways to help your dyslexic thrive this summer: (1) keep language a priority; (2) nurture your child’s talents, gifts, and interests; and (3) unplug, explore, and have lots of fun.
