Dyslexia: the treatments

The main goal of treatment is to limit school failure. Even if the benefits are observed in the long term, the prognosis is pretty good overall.

The improvement is indisputable when dyslexia is moderate and supported at an early age. The earlier the screening for dyslexia, the more effective the treatments. These must be set up by experts, in the framework of teamwork between the teacher, the nurse or the school doctor, the family ... Once the diagnosis is established thanks to the speech therapy assessment - sometimes associated with a neuropsychological assessment - the treatments can be put in place.

The treatments are multidisciplinary, and require the intervention of several experts: speech therapist, psychologist, doctor, teacher ... Without forgetting the family!

Treatments are made up of three pillars: language rehabilitation, supportive psychotherapy, special education (flexible hours, school life support, support classes, etc.) and finally the management of related disorders. Not to mention the cooperation of parents, essential to the implementation of these follow-ups, and the maintenance of the motivation of the child.

The latter must be supported and reassured as much as possible, in order to avoid an alteration of his self-confidence. Just as the psychological difficulties associated with it, such as AD / HD or anxiety, must be considered. Dyslexia is a fairly complex disorder, the child must be supported in its entirety, taking into account his skills, as well as his performance.
