  • Learn about your child’s difficulty, acknowledge the challenges and stay positive.
  • Accept your child for who they are and don’t impose your sense of who they should be.
  • Recognise, encourage and develop your child’s abilities and talents, build their self esteem.
  • Help them with their school work and organisation, show interest in what they do, provide resources and support.
  • Involve yourself in the school community, be available to help and show support.
  • Support the school efforts to help your child, communicate effectively and provide feedback.
  • Attend awareness talks or courses on learning differences
  • Be part of a support group to hear what other parents have to say
