As a parent I am a firm believer every child should have the opportunity to emphasize their strengths, which in turn, will ensure successful experiences. Dyslexia, for the most part, gives the polar opposite of positive experiences. Typically every school day is fraught with a child hiding their struggle. They try their very hardest, only to constantly miss the mark.
Dyslexia can be subtle; such as a person may read very well, but not remember what they read. Or, it can be profound when a person is unable to recognize a letter or attach a sound to that letter to make a word to link into a sentence and understand meaning. It shows itself differently from person to person.
You are invited to forget everything you know, well, everything you think you know about how we learn to read. Traditionally all of us learned the alphabet, letter sounds, words, word meaning and understanding of what we read from our early elementary teachers and family. We learn to speak by observing others. We learned to walk from determination and curiosity.
