Hi. My little brother is almost 13 and was diagnosed with dyslexia a few months ago. He’s homeschooled and has given up on anything that has to do with reading and writing. Our six-year-old little sister can read and write better than him. I’m worried and wondered what there is out there that I can do to help him?
You call it dyslexia. School systems call it learning disabilities. It is still the same problem. Your brother needs specific special education help if he is to overcome or compensate for his disabilities. The problem with home schooling is that most parents are not trained special education teachers and do not have the knowledge or skills to help remediate the problems. He must have skilled special education help if he is to improve with reading and writing. Show this answer to your mother and ask her to think about what I said.
