What causes Negative Feelings?

A dyslexic child may struggle in class to learn and at home to control their behaviour. They are more likely to have mental health issues, resulting in negative feelings. This can show as:

  • Angry Outburst
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Tiredness
  • Low Motivation
  • Tummy Pains
  • Headaches
  • Low self-esteem
  • Unfocused behaviour

Improving physical and mental health, can help a dyslexic child challenge negative thinking. The activities below will provide the child with the skills to do this.

Affects of Stress on Body

Top Tips Course

The 3 activities take just 10 mins per day:

  • Aim to try all 3 activities in 1 week, what days will you do the tasks?
  • Do them with the child, in a quiet place with no distractions.
  • Do each task on different days, to stop the child becoming overwhelmed.

Remember this course is about the child learning how to manage their own wellbeing. Find out what works for the child using the activities below and encourage them to do more.

Task 1 Find your Calm space

Use Calm Corner Card

Help the child show and understand what makes them feel calm when learning

  • Ask the child to show what makes them feel calm when learning, by pointing at examples on the "Calm Corner" card.
  • Ask the child to draw or write 3 things that help them feel calm, when learning. Use the card for ideas.
  • Create a calm space from the child at home or in classroom. It could be as simple as a cushion on the floor next to a window.

Use the calm corner when the child needs to do school work, it can also be used when the child needs some quiet time.

Task 2 Healthy Habits

Use Healthy Habits Card

Help the child adopt healthy habits to improve their wellbeing

  • Ask the child to choose a healthy habits badge to achieve using the "Healthy Habits" card.
  • Talk to the child about what they will do to get the badge, for example make a birthday card for the "craft" badge.
  • Complete the activity and ask the child how it make them feel? Do they seem more relaxed?

You can repeat the activity, until the child has collected all the badges.

Task 3 Calming Yoga

  • Ask the child to do the easy yoga pose and breathing exercise using the "calming yoga" card.
  • Using the card ask the child to choose another yoga pose to try.
  • Ask the child if they have other ideas for animal yoga poses, can they show you?

The activity can be repeated until the child had completed all the yoga poses.
