Here is a book I finished recently: Overcoming Dyslexia, a Scientific approach.
Why? Well, I am suspicious that my dear daughter might be struggling with this. There is a lot of this affliction in my mom’s side of the family and it is known to be hereditary. Mostly I notice that, for a really smart and inquisitive kid, Nicole is having a hell of a time learning to read. We mentioned this concern to her teacher at our meeting in November and she was relieved to not have to bring it up, because she noticed the same thing.
This book is a pretty interesting resource and I’m glad our library had it but the best news is that the school district has a new ‘Early Literacy Intervention’ program and have asked if we will let Nicole participate in it. Absolutely!! They will be spending extra time with her every day on reading. We are working on it at home too. I honestly think there are only two important things she needs to learn in school; to read and comprehend and to get along with people. Everything on the road to success is built upon these two things.
I think we’re already making some progress and I hope it continues. It breaks my heart to see her frustration and reluctance when its time to practice spelling and reading.
Have any of my readers ever dealt with dyslexia? I know a few of you are teachers and several are bookworms-any thoughts to share? Thanks
