Dyslexic kids often struggle to learn how to read in traditional school environments. One might think external factors are necessary for dyslexic kids to learn how to read, but self-directed learning has proven successful for dyslexic kids. Oftentimes, there is much external pressure directed towards dyslexic kids from their parents and teachers. This can lead to dyslexic kids developing an adversion to reading. Once that pressure is reduced, many dyslexic kids thrive and are able to learn to read much easier.
- Putting external pressure on dyslexic kids learning to read makes it much harder for them to learn.
- With the pressure to learn to read reduced, dyslexic kids are able to learn to read with much more ease.
- When dyslexic kids feel pressure from their schools or their parents to learn to read, they can develop an adversion to reading.
“When we asked them why they were able to learn to read there when they had not learned before, both said, in different ways, that they learned because the pressure was off.”
