The aim of the study is to illuminate the challenges that mothers experience in raising
children with dyslexia. A semi-structured interview was conducted with ten mothers
of children with dyslexia at the Dyslexia Association Malaysia (DAM) centre. Data
were analysed using Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA) approach. Two main
themes emerged from the interview transcripts, i.e. "difficult yet enduring" and "self-perseverance".
The current study revealed challenges of mothers with dyslexic children, which could
be addressed by health professionals. In addition, this study provides insights and
a deeper understanding for health professionals to support mothers and families who
have children with dyslexia.
