Anyone with children knows the holiday season is an exciting time. From family gatherings to school activities to weekend fun, there’s so much to do and see together.
Students with dyslexia can be incredibly clever at hiding their problems. While they may not be reading as well as their classmates, they tend to have a high degree of intellect that often overshadows the core issues at hand. In fact, some of the smartest people in history struggled with dyslexia and still reached a high level of achievement. From Leonardo da Vinci to Albert Einstein, Henry Winkler to Keanu Reeves, Richard Branson to Pablo Picasso, many famous people did not allow their dyslexia to define their lives or careers.
Having a child with social, behavior or academic issues is a challenge. What can make it even more challenging, as a parent, is feeling like the blame lies on you for your child’s difficulties. It is not uncommon for parents of children with struggles to blame themselves for what their children go through, which can develop into a pattern of guilt, anxiety and hopelessness — especially when it seems like treatment or care isn’t helping.
Child behavioral issues can be challenging and frustrating for the entire family. As a parent, you may notice that if you don’t maintain a strict daily structure, your child’s symptoms worsen and they become more difficult to manage. Regardless of whether your child has a diagnosis or not, consistency and structure are necessary components to healthy development.
Back to school is a time for fun and is also a time when all students, perhaps all families, feel stressed. There are school materials to buy, knowledge to remember and schedules to change. That’s stressful for any child, and the many changes at once can be overwhelming for a child with social issues or a student with behavioral challenges.
As summer comes to an end, it’s time to shift gears and prepare yourself for fall. With the change of the seasons comes a change in routine, something that can throw off the comfort of a child with social or behavioral issues. Luckily, we have some tips to help smooth the transition and make those school mornings a bit more successful.
Returning to school in the fall is both an exciting and stressful time for most kids. If your child has a learning difference that makes school more challenging, the dominant feeling might be stress. You can help to turn this around by taking a few steps to prepare your child to be back in the classroom and ready for a good year.
For some kids, going back to school is a stressful time full of change and anxiety. Whether they spent their summer following a schedule or simply having fun with their family, they knew what to expect from day to day. Now, that is all about to change.
