“No, ma’am, his eyesight is perfect.”
Ironically, that’s not at all the answer you wanted.
Your 7-year-old is having a very hard time learning to read and write. He mixes up letters, he skips words… he even complains of nausea when he needs to do reading in the classroom. You were so hoping that this was all a case of needing glasses, and then all would be smooth sailing.
But it’s not.
What do you do now?
We just wrote a guest post for the Growing Hands on Kids site on that very topic. You’re welcome to check it out: The Secret Sensory Culprit Making Reading and Writing Challenging for Your Child.
You’ll find out about the other sensory systems (not just the visual system) that can make reading and writing a struggle, together with practical tips and exercises for you to help your child in those areas.
