    Exclamation HELP FOR A FRIEND - daughter diagnosed with dyslexia ... support please :)

    Hi all

    A friend of mine has just found out that her daughter (heading into grade 2) has dyslexia. This explains a lot of the struggles that she has had at school up till now, and her mum is trying to work out where to start?!?!


    Can anyone recommend an informative site to look at? or their own personal experience please? What sort of strategies were suggested?? How do you approach a teacher with strategies/ ideas?

    Can any one offer advice please?

    Thanks
    Jen

    On my phone so don't have access to all my links but Google 'speld' organisation. They are a great starting point. The teacher should be able to access a range of resources and, if they are half decent, be very open to working actively with the parents to introduce specific strategies to help.
