|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.

|My 9 year son just got diagnosed with Dyslexia, or a learning disability as most prefer to say it. Now he is being test for ADD, are the two normally linked? ↑

|Our son was diagnosed in grade 5 and it's been a total nightmare ever since. It doesn't help that he's been bullied since year 7. In australia there isn't a particular school who helps kids with dyslexia issues. Schooling system in Australia are pathectic. Our son now has high anxiety/ depression and we've been on a rollercoaster ever since. I hope find some hope in your child dyslexia as we look for hope all the time ↑

I too just found out that my 9 year old son has sever dyslexia too. Here are some things that was crutial in my son learning. He must learn by hands on. My son had the worst time learning the alphabet, until we began to build it and within 2 weeks he learned half the alphabet at 5 years old and a few more weeks to learn the rest of it. Reading writing, spelling, math and opposites are a real problem for my son. Years and years of frustration had developed and he hated learning. So I took a $4000 chance and paid for 100 hours of tutoring at a professional tutoring center. Thank God I did. Never once did they have the behavior issues the schools got. My son got one on one help for 2 hours each visit and he worked hard the whole time! He now is willing to work with me academically. This is huge because now I am able to tutor him, especially because I am out of tutoring hours. The thing I was most surpised about was how dyslexia was so much more than writing letters backward...It effects saying the right words often opposite words in mistake, hesitation when they have something to say, thinking/saying something different then they write like my son was spelling the word am and he says...a...but he wrote "m" then he gets confused why there is an "m" and he trys to figure out where the "a" goes...He is unorganized in his thinking and can't handle being told more than 1 maybe 2 things to do, he is often distracted by everything. Just giving him a mechanical pencil for his homework tonight, he opened up the pencil about 10 times, broke the lead about 20 times, analyzed every ascept of that pencil as if he was going to recreate the pencil. Realizing the information/input he gets often is disconnected in the brain and sometimes even if it goes into the brain correctly, the brain telling his hand what to do is sometimes wrong too...But, I never knew there was more going on with my son, I thought he was just a challenging son at times...well who am I kidding, he is challenging most of the time...He has been going to counselling for years and without much difference and multiple people. Finally, his psychiatrist wanted to rule out autism and mild mental retardation...That is when I found out about the dyslexia and to add to the mix...His IQ was 58...which equals the status of Mild mental retardation...so his behavior problems are now more justifyable but add to the dyslexia challenge...You are not alone...just get creative and remember celebrate the small steps and not worry about what he can't do and focus on the positives even when your child is struggling... :-) ↑

a good pice of advice i can give you is dont make him read try to lision to him and let him start reading on his own of cures from time to time you can ask hime if he wants to read on things he like to do and other stuff like that. per exanpul i play lots of games like star craft 2 so my mom told me if i want to read about it in class at school i can i was happy and she both me a book about it and im still reading it i got hook its good.
but to go even farther i only started to read about games 3 monts ago b4 that i could not read or rithe sints my parrants where to buzy with my sither thats got cystic fibrosis i started to paly a game calld ( world of Warcraft ) and i lernd to read cuz i hade to to continew the game.
i did not really get any support from any one wen i was growing up ppl where just sayign i was lazy my mom was trying to send me to sumer school ?? whats up with that ?
ican understand tho my sister witch is 19 years old hase cystic fibrosis and it is much worst for her then it is for me i always try to help her out.

|My son is in 2nd. grae. He has recently been diagnosed with dyslexia by his neropsycologist(sp?) The public school that he attends has been trying to tell me to tell me that New York State does not recognise this as a specific disability just a generalized learning disability, his diagnosing dr. is in NYS. Then his Special Ed reading teacher told me and I quote"Sam is just never going to be a phenomeonal speller or reader and we just have to accept that, and focus on other aspects of his eduacation." How are we supposed to focus on other things when he is entering 3rd grade next sept. and reads at a Kindergarten level. I tried to tell the principal of the scool and all he said was that the teacher is a wonderful teach and that she knows what she is doing. My son is only 8 and has an oral vocab of a 6th grader( found this out with all the testing) so why are they already limiting him? They have really done nothing this school year to help him..even went so far as to stop giving him spelling tests. Anyone else have similar probs. or know what I can do. I am at a loss here. Thanks ↑

|I also have dyslexia and I was diagnosed in the 7th grade going into 8th. I always struggled with my work and I had a vary bad case of it. I had between a 2nd and 3rd grade reading level. which the books were twice to three times my reading level. So from than on I worked as hard as I could and gave up things I loved just so I could read I currently have a 12.9+ reading level now after all the years. ↑

|What an interesting post. How old is the son who just got diagnosed? Something is going on with my 3-yr old son, but I am not sure what yet. I am sure there are support groups for dyslexia out there. ↑

|Hi Sue, there are some great dyslexia support groups on Facebook - you'll probably find one near you from there! In the meantime, there's a lot you can both do to help your son. Bear in mind that he needs to learn in a different way - using multi-sensory methods (make sure he sees, hears, touches and speaks aloud when he is learning words) with a LOT of repetition will help. You might find my dyslexia blogs helpful at www.centradyslexia.wordpress.com or download a free trial of our new iPad app www.spelltrekking.com You can contact me via our Centra Dyslexia Centre Facebook page for more advice, if you wish? Good luck! Ros ↑

There is a massive amount of information available to you and your son.
First, the person who evaluated your son should provide information regarding local support for you.
So much to tell you but this is critical...The most important component to your son's progress will be the work you do to educate yourself specifically about how your son manifests his dyslexia...That is a term that means nothing more than he has a problem with reading. Your son's difficulty could be caused by any number of LANGUAGE BASED PROCESSING ISSUES from phonological processing to comprehension. If you don't know exactly the source of the processing issue, how can you decide the best route to help.
Can you find a reputable reading expert in your community? You'll need a support person to help you navigate this.
Also check out www.allkindsofminds.org and the International Dyslexia Association for more information.
I can also provide you more information at [email protected] and through my blog at www.doctormichaelhart.com. Be sure to sign up for my newsletter. ↑

|I am dyslexic. How old is your son? If he is just learning bacic thigs like the alphabit, try using picturs. For most dyslexics, public schooling or homeschooling is best. Use sertan letters or words in certain colors. Use the same font if posible. You want him to reconize letturs and spelling, but if you change them, it will make it harder for him to read. Also, dont let him have low self esteem. It will make school very stresful. Help him with a happy positive attitude, and if he makes mistaks, just try again. ↑
