What causes Angry Outburst?

A dyslexic child may struggle to control their angry outbursts.

Behind their anger can be:

  • Fear
  • Frustration
  • Sadness
  • Tiredness
  • Feeling overwhelmed

Research has shown dyslexic children feel and show their emotions stronger.

Dyslexic children can bottle-up all their feelings and this can lead to angry outbursts.

Talking about emotions can help a child with negative feelings and relieve stress. The activities below are designed to help you do this.
