|I'm 13, i found out i had dyslexia a year ago, um, with the risk of sounding pompuss, i have quite a high IQ so the doctor, man, person, thing, said i was able to cover it up, since it has been discovered good things and bad things have come up..
once a week I get to go and see a nice lady who helps me. I get extra time on tests and things that i find hard like reading and writing
Most of the teachers move me to the front of the class and every now and then stop the lessons and ask "everyone alright, amelia? yeah? got it? do you want me to slow it down? no? okay"
My "friends" have amo for when we fight and even the nice people arnt very tactfull, say i send a note says "To Anie, from your not so secret admirier, lol" she will say something like to everyone "i know its you becuase you spelt admirirer wrong, haha"
she didnt mean it to hurt but it did
But soon i'm moving to a new school, were the people are nicer and the teachers are better ↑

|I'm currently training someone who told me they have dyslexia. This came up because they were having such a difficult time writing. This job requires extensive writing and the ability to document interviews with parents and children. They would have a short amount of time for documentation with very high caseloads. This is a very stressful job and most people have difficulty keeping up with the documentation, not the investigation/interviewing tasks of this position.
I want to educate myself and not discourage someone from a position, but I don't encourage someone to stay in a position where they would be constantly overwhelmed. ↑

|I am not sure how old your son is but there are lots of teaching strategies for parents to use to help their children. I highly recommend using dot patterns to help with letter reversals. It has been my experience as a mother and a teacher that most students with learning difficulties have a difficult time memorizing facts so use other strategies to teach math. Math should be taught as a system.
Look at www.teachallkids.com for ideas.
Good Luck ↑

|i have dyslexia. i was never tested for it but i knew something was wrong. my parents caught on to it at an early stage and had me placed in learning support. when i read something it doesn't stick i don't understand. I'll study for a really long time and fail a test its so frustrating and most of my teachers don't understand it very well. I've been in learning support sense i was in kindergarten i'm embarrassed of it because everyone in my school thinks that i get the answers but when someone reads to me i get it and i still get low grades but usually there passing. sometimes i just cry because for once i just want to do something by myself with no help and pass a test or take the right notes or read a book without someone having to read it to me. ↑

|We're all wired differently. Because the brain is so good at its job look out for signs of artistic or musical ability.
Also, try reading through an orange filter - Lucozade colour. This can have the effect of stopping words jumping around. ↑

|The Words on this page
They are both big and small
They are like pieces of a puzzle
But they donít fit at all
It is my job to force them to fit
If this doesnít work
I still donít quit
Sometimes this fills me with anger
So I clench my fists
Then I laugh it off with a hiss
I believe I see the world different then most
Its not that I am lazy
Not that I donít care
I swear I swear
Most donít believe me
But I donít care
And the words that I hear
donít pass though each ear
They stay in my head
Exactly as Is said
I rather live like this
It is the best
It makes me different
From the rest ↑

|im 14 years old and when i was in the 2nd grade i was diagnosed with dyslexia, scotopic sensitivity syndrome, and add. now that ive started high school, its really annoying because all my teachers think im dumb, just because i do most of my work in the special ed room and it takes me a lot longer than most of the other kids. Ive actually got a higher iq than most of them! I was just hoping that i could talk to someone who actually knows what i am going through! ↑

|I also have dyslexia, i know what its like to have words mixed up all the time; i spoke to a couciler at school the went to a phycologist to check i was okay, i still talk to my school, counciler and that helped raise my self estime and helped me know more about dyslexia, and that it's not just as simple as saying i'm stupid. ↑

|I my self is looking for a support group and have not found one locally. However, I will advise that read The Gift of Dyslexia, get your self very familiar with your sons IEP Team and what your wrights are. Buckle up and get ready for a fight. What ever you do don't give up!!!!! ↑

|I've taught dyslexic children for the past 20 years. The most important thing you can do is make sure your son understands that he is not at fault. You need to explain that it is the system that is failing not him. Try to have him taught through phonics - Code Cracker Phonics works wonders - depending on his age. Remember that he has a wealth of skills he has already developed to help him cope. Keep him close and don't allow his self-esteem to drop.

|Go to www.brightsolutions.us for up to date amazing information on dyslexia. I'm dyslexic as are 3 of my 4 sons. I'm using the Barton Reading and Spelling system and it's fabulous. Susan Barton developed this Ortan Gillam based system to be taught by parents, it's like the Wilson system but easier for a parent to teach!!! I'm already seeing great results in the boys spelling and reading.
Also use Times Tales to teach multiplications as all my children had their times tables down within 3 45 minute sessions!!! ↑

|We just found out that our son has dyslexia, we are learning all about it and know that we need to become our son's advocate.
Schools do not have the ability to test for dyslexia, we went outside the school system to someone that was a speciallist.
Research has shown that these children need to enter into a program that is Orton gullian based and not just influenced.
You need to get school accomodations for your child, 504 , because with dyslecia children are not good at memorizing and need to have assignments dictated for them. etc.
You need to become your child's advocate in all ways. We are just starting our journey with the school so I guess we are going to find how receptive they are to help us, we are eventually hoping going to form a support group for parent's with children of learning disabilities. lis ↑

|If your son is deslexic you should check out Dora.it helps deslexics it helped me a lot. If you live in UK u can get loads of grants for when he gose to universaty. And he can get extrea time in all of his egsams as you can see I can not spell. They will exept lower grads to take him to universaty. You need to get him assesed ask the schoolbif they will do it if they can't you will have to go privet. This will mean he can get all of thes things. Deslexic dose not mean that your stupid. It's just that ur barain works differant but most people look down at you and think you are. Ther are many famous people that are deslexic google it to see. Deslexics are normally good at spisific subgects e.e computers, art, bulding and so on they are normally better at practical stuff. Hope this help you and good luck to him because I am 20 years old and have coped fine. ↑

|British dyslexia association must be first port of call. Look at work related to visual tracking problems and retained primitive reflexes affecting learning. Dyslexia is so much more than dificulty with reading and writing. Check out movement and learning centre in scotland, it is clear for my son his retqained reflexes are inhibiting his ability to read and write.
My son has dyslexia, just diagnosed in Sept as he started year 7. I was distraught at first but now he knows, he is so much happier and we know we can move forward with confidence. ↑

|Students with dyslexia often need to be taught in a way that suits their way of thinking. †This often involves the understanding concepts or systems. †To deal with letter reversals, use dot patterns for letter and number reversals. †Reading is best taught using decoding word lists. †For writing a paragraph, give them a simple formula - introduction, 3 facts and a conclusion. †For math, use counting up/down, related facts, regrouping and the math ladder. †Multiplication and division have a system, eg., times 4 is a double plus a double; divide by 8 simply cut the number in half three times. †

|My name is Joy and I am part of the development team of a Dyslexia intervention program that just recently has been put on the market.
Our new program developed out of the great need that we see all over for a good Dyslexia intervention program and I think that perhaps we can help.
Dynaread is an internet-based Learn to Read program designed to restore a studentís reading motivation and deliver reading fluency.
If you are not sure what causes your childís reading problems, we also provide an accurate online Assement test.
Our website www.dynaread.com contains much more information, and a link to the free online Assessment.
Feel free to contact our Head of Research directly. His name is Hans Dekkers, and his email address is [email protected] . He will be more than willing to answer any questions that you may have.
