Walking home from school after a long day, I would ask my mum for a big bowl of "Spellenamy" for dinner. My confused mum would ask me again what I wanted. It would take a while before she understood that I wanted "Spaghetti". My little girl is the same, she struggle with the names of things and comes up with some very imaginative names. "Mulk" for milk, "Blanbit" for blanket, "Racsan" for rucksack.
Many children when they are learning to speak will get words mixed-up, however it can be a sign of dyslexia. When I was trying to understand if my little girl was dyslexic I found so much information, it was confusing. I needed clear signs, clear examples of why she maybe dyslexia. I put these examples into the card below, to help you spot the early signs of dyslexia in your child.
