Effectiveness of information education and communication package on knowledge and attitude regarding early identification of dyslexic children among primary school teachers in selected schools at Puducherry
“Dyslexia” refers to the inability of children to meet their academic needs which creates frustration among them. Their parents and teachers see a bright, enthusiastic child who is not learning to read and write and perceive their inability as lack of hard work. Ironically, no one knows how hard the dyslexic is trying. Inspite of their hard work such perception exists among teachers as they are unable to recognize the disability of child due to lack of knowledge and negative attitude regarding dyslexia. Therefore, by imparting knowledge and positive attitude to school teachers it is possible to identify a child suffering from dyslexia and early interventions can be implemented for the betterment of a child’s future.
