The Implementation of The Cakna Emosi Programme (ProCaksi) Among Parents of Dyslexic Students at SK Alor Gajah 1, Melaka
Keywords:Dyslexia, Emotional Support, Emotional Awareness
Nowadays, an increasing number of students are experiencing difficulties with specific learning, known as dyslexia. However, few parents are aware of the problem because dyslexic children have nearly the same intelligence as other normal children. Support and awareness campaigns about the characteristics of dyslexia are still lacking in Malaysia. Most of the information about dyslexia is obtained from websites downloaded by dyslexia awareness programme organisers. Reading materials about dyslexic characteristics are also difficult to come by, mostly parents to overlook or simply fail to recognise the presence of dyslexic characteristics in their children. Studies on dyslexia have been around for a long time, particularly studies conducted abroad. Many studies on dyslexia focus on teachers and dyslexic students, but studies on dyslexic parents are still lacking in Malaysia. The goal of this best practice writing is to share ideas and experiences to help parents of children with dyslexia at Sekolah Kebangsaan Alor Gajah 1 (Alor Gajah 1 National School) overcome feelings of worry and anxiety through The Caring Program Practice. The goal of this practise activity is to see how the caring Program Practice can increase parental support and awareness of children with dyslexic characteristics. In 2021, the target group for the implementation of this practice activity is 5 parents of Special Education students enrolled in the Special Education Program for Specific Integration of Dyslexia at Sekolah Kebangsaan Alor Gajah 1. The data collected during the implementation of this practice activity is collected via a questionnaire survey method. The data obtained from the activities conducted show that the implementation of these practice activities has successfully increased parental support and awareness of children with dyslexic characteristics. Finally, it is hoped that this best practice can be applied to parent support groups. Especially those who have dyslexic children.
