Family MattersHomework

Homework can be a huge challenge for dyslexics. Family members may be tempted to do the work for you, but that will not help you learn.

There are more useful things your family can do to help if you're dyslexic. For example:

  • Set aside a specific time each night for doing your homework. Your family can make sure that you have the quiet you need to do your work.
  • Tell your parents exactly when each assignment is due. Also, try to explain what each assignment is about.
  • If you have trouble getting started, tell your parents. They may have some good suggestions. Talk about it together. But do the reading or writing yourself.
  • Study together with family members for quizzes and tests.
