Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurological in origin. It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities.
What causes dyslexia?
Reading is complicated. Many areas in the brain must communicate with each other to read. The brain must take in, store and process language information. When all areas work together, a person understands and remembers what is read.
Parents are often the first to notice a learning problem.
What To Do:
Trust your instincts.
The teachers tells me my child is struggling.
My child tries so hard but just isn’t getting it.
My child is coming home with bad grades.
We study every night.
My child doesn’t want to go to school.
My child enjoys being with his friends. Why doesn’t my child want to go to school?
My child is in the nurse’s office a lot.
My child has headaches a lot.
My child doesn’t have any confidence.
Where is that happy child I used to know?
You are not alone!
1 in 5 students feel this way.
1 in 5 parents feel the way you feel.
What to do:
Have your child assessed. Imagery is the key to the mind of a dyslexic child. It opens many doors. So be sure the program uses imagery to teach your child.
Your child is smart. The underlying cause of all of your child’s problems is distortion. If your child is taught using their strengths, the distortions will disappear. Your child sees things 3 dimensional. Your child needs to be taught using 3 dimensional strategies.
Your child doesn’t always hear the correct sounds. There is nothing wrong with your child’s hearing.
Your child has difficulty comprehending what they are reading. Imagery will solve this problem. Your child’s mind is filled with imagination. Strategies that encourage your child to see the “BIG PICTURE” will improve their comprehension.
Your child can be confident.
Your child can like school.
Your child can learn to read.
Your child will be successful.
We see it every day !
