hi Redhima Malhotra ! I do understand ur concern. the way u have described, he seems to have problem with comprehension too, that is probably the reason he dreads english language. he is finding it difficult to read and then comprehend . please go through this blog, hope u will find it useful!Hey! I find this Parenting blog really interesting. I suggest you have a look too: https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/understanding-dyslexia/138?ptref=sa0l000030g003u. arrange a tutor who could assist him and tutor him in reading , writing as well as comprehension.. as far as eating issues are concerned , u could look for his choice , add ingredients of ur choice. make the dishes not only attractive to eyes but these should please his taste buds as well. Redhima u need to be patient with him, avoid criticizing him for what he is unable to do and praise him for his strengths, be it sports, music, dance ,drama or oration.. support him , he will learn to manage things gradually. hope this helps.

Hi Redhima, Dyslexia is one of the learning disabilities. Dyslexic Children will have problems in reading and writing as the printed/ written letters look jumbled for them. So will have problem in spelling and even understand the written sentence. But they learn fast if they are told verbally. Your child needs help of an educational psychologist (either in school or in private). If possible look for mainstream school which is inclusive - meaning the school will have an educational psychologist to accommodate children with any type of learning disability to help these children remediate the problem and get on track with regular curriculum. So please look for inclusive school. If you couldn't find any inclusive school in your place, at least find a private educational psychologist. Early intervention is very important. So get help as soon as possible. This doesn't have anything to do with your child's intelligence. But if left unattended, it will affect his educational performance as he will be learning multiple languages and will also be required to read and write a lot of content in higher grades.
