Some mistakes to avoid with your dyslexic, dyspraxic or dysphasic child

Written by Adelyne

Does your child have difficulty speaking properly, has delays in spoken language or has very poor language?

What is the difference between a dyslexic child, a dyspraxic child and a dysphasic child?

There are three main types of learning disabilities dyslexiathe dyspraxia and the dysphasia. Each type affects a different area of learning. Dyslexia is a reading disorder, dyspraxia is a motor disorder and dysphasia is a language disorder.

Dyslexia, dyspraxia, and dysphasia are common neurological disorders that can interfere with learning and daily functioning. These disorders are often combined with other learning difficulties, such as difficulties with math, memory and concentration. People with dyslexia, dyspraxia or dysphasia often have difficulty learning and remembering things. They may also have trouble concentrating or following instructions. These disorders can affect a person's ability to read, write, speak or do math.

Dys disorders are usually diagnosed at school, as children with these disorders often have difficulty keeping up with learning. If you think your child may have one of these disorders, it is important to talk to your child's educator or doctor. There are treatments and learning strategies that can help children with dyslexia, dyspraxia or dysphasia learn and function better.

Dyslexic children have difficulty learning to read, write and do math. Dyspraxic children have difficulty with coordination and movement. Dysphasic children have difficulty speaking and being understood.

Dyslexia is a specific difficulty in learning to read. Children with dyslexia have difficulty associating sounds with letters, which prevents them from reading fluently. Dyspraxia, on the other hand, is a coordination disorder. Children with dyspraxia have difficulty making fine, precise movements. Finally, dysphasia is a language disorder. Children with dysphasia have difficulty expressing themselves coherently.

Children with dyslexia, dyspraxia or dysphasia often have difficulty following instructions, understanding what they are told, expressing themselves coherently and learning to read and write. These difficulties can have a significant impact on their schooling, socialization and emotional well-being.

but in reality, they are closely linked to each other.

So we often see attention deficit and hyperactive people with language disorders, they have a common denominator.

Why is it important to treat him on different levels and not only with speech therapy or speech therapy?

Like all disorders, the problem is complex and is located on several levels: physical, emotional and mental.

The desire to resolve them will therefore be played out on these three levels as well.

The 3 mistakes not to make

1. Neglecting your diet

2. Neglecting the emotional impact

3. Neglecting arts and sports activities

1. Neglecting your diet

Sending your child to a health professional such as a speech therapist, speech therapist or speech therapist while neglecting his or her diet is a mistake.

The brain of an ADHD or a dysfunctional person does not work as it should, it has bugs.

Dr. Natacha Campbell notes that all his ADHD and dys. patients without exception have defective intestinal flora. According to the latest clinical studies, the link is undeniable!

For some people, this will result in bloating, diarrhea, constipation, gas, skin problems, eczema or asthma. All are signs of intestinal disorders.

For others, it will be less visible because they do not have visible intestinal disorders, but when the intestinal flora is analyzed, fungi such as Candida Albicans or clostridia can be found, to name only the best known.

Consider the effects of alcohol on the body. It is now well known that alcohol intoxicates the brain and liver and promotes deviant behavior.

Personally, as I drink very, very little; when I drink barely a glass of alcohol at parties, I can no longer say a single sentence, the words don't come out, I have to make a considerable effort to do so.

Well, I learned from Dr. Campbell that certain foods like processed carbohydrates produce the same result in damaged intestinal systems. Due to the presence of yeast, these carbohydrates are not metabolized properly, end up fermenting and the glucose in the food is converted to alcohol.

This is only a small part of the problem. Globally, our current diet rich in processed foods, antibiotics, flavor enhancers, preservatives, heavy metals ... considerably damage the flora.

This prevents it from producing the essential vitamins for our brain, creates a lot of deficiencies and intoxicates the brain as never before in the history of mankind.

2. Neglecting the emotional impact

My son and I have some dysphasic type difficulties. But not all the time. It depends very much on our emotional state at the time and the people we talk to.

If our confidence is not at its best, we will stammer, have difficulty finding our words or even stutter. Or if certain people, in spite of themselves, stress us, impress us or make us think of someone with whom we had a bad experience in the past, this stress will translate into a nervous, disjointed, hesitant and too fast elocution,

Too much pressure from outside people or their judgments make us lose our means and our self-confidence (already so fragile).

3. Neglecting arts and sports activities

With their busy schedule of all kinds of after-school sessions, dys and ADHD children do not have much time left to practice music, theater or sports. Yet, they are just as necessary if not more so than their speech therapy sessions, psychotherapy... They work on the same problems without putting their finger on "you have a problem".

Moreover, we hardly move around on foot or by bike as we used to. And the addiction to screens and video games keeps us glued to the chair for so many hours when it would be so much healthier to play and let off steam outside, so that the body's energy circulates better and feeds our numb body.

How to improve language disorders

On the physical level

Restore and detoxify the intestinal flora - Dr. Campbell's book "The Enteropsychological Syndrome" is very complete on the subject;

Avoid foods that poison the brain.

I know it's not easy to change your eating habits but in the end, the hardest part is the first steps.

Get enough sleep. The lack of sleep strongly accentuates dyslexia, dysphasia...

On the emotional level

These disorders are not easy to live with in the eyes of others and generate a feeling of inferiority in the dys. With repetition, this degenerates into low self-esteem and loss of self-confidence.

According to Ronald Davis, these negative emotions trigger "disorientation". In some dys people, this can go as far as a headache or nausea.

To help them emotionally, it's important to pay attention to our reactions to what they do. Some are more devastating than constructive.

For example: "You can see that you can when you want to" implies that they usually don't make any effort because they lack the willpower. But are we really aware of what they are experiencing on the inside?

This will be the subject of a future article. In the meantime, consider encourage what nourishes positive emotions. Highlight what they do well, their efforts. Encourage them to the maximum, believe in them and their ability. And let go of the pressure on their clumsiness

If you haven't read it yet, I suggest you read the article, the 5 phrases that give wings to our ADHD children, in order to strengthen their self-confidence.

On the mental level

Dys. and ADHD tend to be visual thinkers. Verbal language is therefore not their preferred mode of communication. It requires an extra effort to understand.

To improve this difficulty, the ideal is to encourage what stimulates the exchange between the 2 cerebral hemispheres and creates new nerve connections while being playful.

The most attractive disciplines are

- playing music, not only by ear but also by learning to read it

- to make theater

- walking, sports, dancing

In short, anything that requires coordination of movements is excellent, as long as it takes place in a relaxed and caring atmosphere.
