How do you build confidence in a dyslexic child?

Help to build a dyslexic child's confidence, by boosting their self-esteem and future ambitions. Dyslexic children may struggle at school, this can make them lack self-belief and have negative feelings.

The child can be encouraged to see their own talents and strengths by:

  • Giving lots of praise
  • Praising even small achievements
  • Talking about their talents
  • Focusing on personal skills (being kind)
  • Having lots of clubs, friends, hobbies
  • Showing them famous dyslexic people

Boosting a dyslexic child's confidence can help them feel more positive and believe they can achieve things. The activities below will provide the child with the skills to do this.
