How can I help my dyslexic child develop their reading skills?

A reading scheme that involves repetition and introduces new words slowly is of the utmost importance.  This will help your child to develop confidence and self-esteem when reading.
It’s important not to ask your child to read a book that is beyond their own reading level as this will serve only to demotivate him. He will be far more motivated to read when demands aren’t too high and he can actually enjoy the book.  If he has to struggle with every word he will forget the meaning of what he is reading.
 
More advanced books should also be available for paired reading with an adult as this will encourage and enthusiasm and love for books. Books on CD and story tapes can also be a wonderful benefit for the enjoyment and enhancement of vocabulary.  
 
There are  special books that are designed especially for dyslexic children which aim to minimise the obstacles that stop reluctant, struggling or dyslexic children from really enjoying a book.

It’s important to remember that reading should be fun and you should try to never lose patience with your child.
