In a post-pandemic world, many people have personal experience using video conferencing platforms to participate in meetings or classes. Chances are you’ve developed an opinion about how this experience went for you. Now that you are looking for dyslexia help at home, you may be wondering if this is an effective approach for your child.
The short answer is: Yes, teletherapy can be as successful as in-person therapy. There are a few reasons for this.
Below is a comparison of typical, facility-based structured literacy intervention with Lexercise’s online structured literacy intervention.
The last update from the American Academy of Pediatrics came in 2016 and emphasized the importance of high-quality programming and parent co-viewing for school-age children. In more recent years, the focus has shifted from time on screens to content on screens. Time spent on screens isn’t automatically negative; it depends on what the child is actually doing when engaged on a screen. Common Sense Media identified four categories of screen time: passive, interactive, communication, and content creation. The Human Screenome Project further details how two different people can spend the same amount of time on a screen, yet the activities they are engaged in can be vastly different.
Typically, the main concern is that excessive passive screen time could prevent children from engaging in developmentally appropriate activities like interacting with others or learning. Lexercise teletherapy sessions are interactive and involve one-on-one communication with a live person under parental supervision. Lexercise online student games are interactive and provide high-quality reinforcement. Lexercise utilizes the power of technology to provide research-based literacy interventions that enhance learning.
In fact, reading difficulties that go untreated can result in anxiety, stress, and negative thoughts. It is in the best interest of a child’s overall health to address reading concerns as early as possible to prevent what is known as the “Vortex of Dyslexia.”
Teletherapy can be successful for your child through a combination of a therapist who knows how to teach language structure, customized daily dedicated practice, and a structured literacy methodology. Lexercise teletherapy offers all three of the needed ‘legs’ to create a firm foundation on which to build your child’s reading, spelling, and writing proficiency. Lexercise teletherapy offers individualized engagement, effective practice opportunities, extra features, and online accessibility so that your child can receive research-based, quality dyslexia help at home.
