Dyslexia Support: Getting The Help You Need For Dyslexic Children

When I became a mum I found myself becoming more and more isolated. This was a shock to me. I had moved to a new area and had become a stay at home mum. Making new friends became harder and harder. Many parents find once they have children that they have no support network.

They say it takes a village to raise a child. Dyslexic children need a variety of people in their lives that can support them. Teachers, family, friends, to help them thrive. Parents and carers of dyslexic children also need this extra support too. They need a network around them of people that can help them, best help their dyslexic child.

Support Bubble Card

The Mooki Cards contain a “Support Bubble” card. To help you find extra support for you and your dyslexic child. Use the card below on your phone or tablet for free!

This card is based on scientific research, on "Virtual Communities of Practise".

Grow Your Dyslexia Support Bubble

  • Caring for a dyslexic child can be particularly challenging. It can be very tiring, confusing and frustrating. You may struggle to know where to get the extra help the child needs. This can be very stressful and isolating for a parent, career. Leading to feelings of isolation, anxiety and depression.
  • Legally schools have to provide support for children with special educational needs. The child’s school will have a (SENCO), Special Educational Needs Coordinator. You can speak to them about organising extra dyslexia support for the child.
  • On-line are many dyslexia charities and organisations. That offer workshops, advice about how to help dyslexic children. Such as the “British Dyslexia Association” and “Made By Dyslexia”. I have also set-up the “Dyslexic Mum Support Group U.K” on Facebook. My group is open to anyone that supports a dyslexic child and is a supportive friendly community.

Learn more about how to support a dyslexic child, see "British Dyslexia Association Advice".

Top Tips from Dyslexic Mum

  • You are not Alone - Parents of dyslexic children are struggling to get the help they need. Everyday on my Facebook “Dyslexic Mum Support Group U.K”, I speak to stressed mums, parents, and careers. The help is out there, but they struggle to find it or understand what help their child needs. If you are struggling, join this support group and get help with any questions you have.
  • Ask for Help - Grow your support bubble, never be afraid to ask for help. It is not a sign of weakness, people like it if you ask for help, it makes them feel valued and trusted.  
  • Time for yourself - Help can be small things that make a big difference. Dyslexic children can need a lot of extra help with homework, organisation, behaviour. Ask for support to give yourself a break, such your child going out for a playdate. If you are stressed and tired you won’t be able to help to the best of your ability. It is important to find time for yourself:)
