Do you think your child has dyslexia?
For centuries professionals have been querying the phenomenon of a scholar who may have normal sensory, perceptual, cognitive and motor abilities, and yet have marked difficulties decoding (reading) and encoding (spelling) the written language. Parents of these children recognize their children’s natural intelligence, but are puzzled as to why there is a problem with reading, writing and spelling. This paradoxical phenomenon is known as Dyslexia..
Do any of the following signs sound familiar?
Your child appears bright or even highly intelligent but is unable to read, write or spell at grade level.
Your child is being labeled lazy or dumb, as “not trying hard enough” or even reported as having “behavioral problems.”
Your child does not test well in writing but does very well orally.
Your child feels dumb or has poor self-esteem.
Your child hides or covers up weaknesses with ingenious compensatory strategies.
Your child is easily frustrated and emotional about reading at school or tests.
Your child is talented in art, drama, music, sports, mechanics, story-telling, sales, business, designing, building, or engineering.
Your child seems to “zone out” or daydream often. Gets lost easily or loses track of time.
