Helping parents understand Dyslexia

Nov 16,2019 - Last updated at Nov 16,2019

On the occasion of Family Literacy Month and to dispel myths about dyslexia, Al Marji’ Publications invited its Educational Psychologist Dina Halaseh from Mind Matters to assist parents in effectively addressing their children’s reading challenges through a candid discussion today.

“Dyslexia causes difficulties in reading, writing, and spelling, but our focus today is on helping struggling readers,”explains Hind-Lara Mango, publisher and managing director of Al Marji’ Publications, publishers of Jordan’s only parenting magazines-Family Flavours and Nakahat ‘Ailiyeh.

Readers Bookshop, Mind Matters and Juthour organic food sponsor joined forces with Al Marji’ Publications to host this event.

Halaseh advised parents that “dyslexia is related to how a child processes sounds and links the sounds to the symbol when reading”.

As a brain trainer, Halaseh works with children and adults to develop their cognitive abilities through her centre, Mind Matters. Chief executive officer of THE Group, Imad Bukhari noted that “Dyslexia affects thousands of children across the country; no child should have to struggle with a disorder when there are proven methods to help”.
