This must be very worrying for you. Like you said, online classes have slowed down all the children and they have become slower in reading and writing since they are not getting enough practice. You can help your child by making her practice at home. Remember right now it is not about the speed. It is about her developing her motor skills. Do not pressurise your child, at this age the child can only sit for 10 to 15 minutes. So start with smaller steps. She can do a line or two at a time. Praise her for sitting down and doing the line, show her patiently where she went wrong and how she can correct it. Point out to her when she has done the correct way and appreciate and praise her for doing it right. Shouting and screaming and getting angry with her will only create more stress for her and she will hate the work. So it is important to be calm, kind and use a lot of fun and play while making her read and write. You could also approach the teacher and take guidance from the teacher. Ask the teacher for some tips and tricks. If you feel even after doing all the above for about 6 months she is finding it difficult then do approach a counsellor. Take care.
