Parental involvement in raising positive, self confident and responsible children

Children are valuable resources for the country. The children of today are leaders of tomorrow. Raising positive, self-confident and responsible children is like planting seeds in a garden. Parents are like gardeners because the journey of parenthood is like sowing seeds of love, nurturing them and believing that the seeds will grow to be a healthy, responsible and self-confident person. The parental role of loving participation in their children’s developmental milestones is the most important time in the children’s brain development. Parents’ involvement is so vital in building the character and values of their children. A safe, positive and loving environment contributes greatly to the physical, emotional and cognitive needs of children. Read More

Hear your child read

Hearing a child reads with pleasure is a very rewarding experience a parent could enjoy. Here are some steps how you could improve the way you hear your child read.

Building confidence

  • As reading is an acquired skill, it is important that we must always build a child’s confidence and interest when we encourage him/her to read. This will result a life long love for reading.
  • The Golden Rule for hearing a child read is to tell him/her the word he/she does not know, and the moment you feel you are tensing up, just switch over to you reading to the child for the next few pages until you feel a bit more relaxed.
  • By doing so, your child is learning to be confident that you will always tell him/her a word which he/she does not know, and can trust that reading with you will be a pleasurable experience.

Effective Teaching Strategies

Most of the dyslexic children and teenagers (learners) face difficulties in coping with the traditional curriculum and teaching styles focusing on the use of visual and audio senses. This is due to their difficulties with either or both of these senses. Some of them may have difficulties with tracking, visual processing, seeing the words become fuzzy, auditory memory or auditory processing. Nevertheless, with proper teaching strategies, they can achieve their true intellectual potential.

Below are some of the recommended teaching strategies for dyslexic learners.

Multi-sensory teaching approach

One of the most effective teaching strategies is using multi-sensory teaching approach. This approach helps them to learn also through tactile and kinetic sensations. For example, in helping a dyslexic child to have breakthrough on the confusion over the direction of ‘b’ and ‘d’, multi-sensory approach means the child has a visual memory from seeing the letter, an auditory  memory from hearing the sound it makes, a tactile memory from writing the letter in the air, touching the sandpaper letter, forming letter using the manipulative such as play-dough, clay or plasticine and  a kinetic (body movement) memory from having draw the letter really large on the carpet.

My personal experience with an 8-year old boy learning his spelling list using multi-sensory approach: Read More
