How to help your child with reading at home:


The above link provides advice in 11 different languages and supports parents of children with disabilities.

Here are the non-negotiables of what is expected of children,  at the end of each year:


Your child’s reading experience is much more than the reading book which comes home from school. Reading is happening all the time in the classroom and in school. It is taught in specific reading and English lessons, but children are practicing and using their ‘reading’ constantly across all subjects too.  The best thing you can do to help your child at school is to read to them and listen to them read.  Does your child understand what has been read? Look at the Free Parent website from Oxford Owl.  


Dyslexia Support:

As a parent or carer for a child with dyslexia, we want to provide the best possible support for you and your child. We can test for the likelihood of dyslexia, using a computer programme in school - we are not qualified to diagnose dyslexia but we can point you in the right direction. Some of our children now use coloured overlays, to help with visual stress that affects their ability to see print on paper.

If you are worried, please do not hesitate to speak with our Honeysuckle Team.  Information is also freely available here: http://www.bdadyslexia.org.uk/parent
