Do you think that when teachers/parents insist that children spend extra time trying to improve skills like handwriting – which may be impossible because of the impact of dyslexia – that they will be ‘put off’ all learning and never achieve at the level of their ability?
Re: Factors that may mask dyslexia in the classroom.
I definitely think the child will be `put off. It would be impossible not to be . You wouldn`t force a person with a visual impairment to walk across a busy road just because all the sighted pedestrians are doing it. And then tell them they will figure it out if they just keep practicing.
Most important to this forum is that the dyslexia must be identified for the child to achieve to the best of their ability.
