Hey. My name's Briana. I was diagnosed with dyslexia when I was thirteen. A few symptoms are : leaving out words when reading, reversing numbers, seeing a word as a different word when reading, difficulty putting thoughts into words, difficulty understanding and comprehending reading even if the person knows all of the words, accidental mispronounciation of words, very emotional, and strong sense of justice. There are many other symptoms, but these are the most common. Take a free screening quiz online. They're all over the internet. If the screening test comes out positive, find a formal test for him to take. I suggest Mind Works. They diagnosed my dyslexia. As for the screening test, I suggest the Davis dyslexia test. That test started me off. It's pretty easy and it's about fifty questions. It takes 20 minutes, 25 tops. It does not compare the child's intelligence with other children as many screening tests do. It asks about their every day behavior and compares it to the usual symptoms of dyslexia. I hope this was helpful.

Reading is best taught by using decoding. Struggling readers look for the small words or sound units within bigger words. You will be surprised at how quickly they become proficient readers by using decoding. For more tips check out the Teach All Kids website. Letter reversals can be dealt with by using dot patterns. Again a simple method but very effective.

At age thirty I have stumbled upon the realization that my son along with myself has/is struggling with symptoms of dyslexia. I am doing more research and will be addressing this situation the best of my abilities. I will seek help with my sons reading instructor and hope that she can guild us into the right direction to establish an effective treatment or routine to make life a little bit easier.
Along with reading the book: Toe to Toe by: Keda Cowling as requested by another person on this blog site and other resources.
As for myself, it will not be that easy. I have graduated with my masters and am currently working as a library media specialist. I have struggle my whole life with reading, writing and spelling. I have pushed myself to over come all obstacles and still continue to struggle with the "flipping" of worlds. Sometimes my speech is impaired because I can't find the words I'm thinking about or need to say. My spelling has took years of perfecting and am currently continuing to perfect, and my reading skills have soared through the roof.
I guess in conclusion, knowing the truth would help us deal with and understand the challenges we have been faced with. At get a better grip and control with out learning needs.

I HAVE DYSLEXIA! i am 15 years old, and am a freshman in high school. i have most of the annoying symptoms. the bad hand writing (and i mean BAD), slow reading pace, difficulty understanding the topics my teacher just went over extensivly just for and to me, dificulty spelling, struggeling with my grades.. ect. living with dyslexia is tuff, i am allways the last one in class to complete an assignment, and offen need to take it home to finish. having dyslexia can cause alot of stress. i often find myself biting/ picking at my finger nails and biting at them due to stress or being nervous about a test or someting that is going wrong due to my dyslexia. i find myself crying myself to sleep at liest once a week due to issues resulting from dyslexia. luckily my parrents are very supportive of me and understand. my father has it to, so that helps alot.

I'm dyslexic and a highschool student. I noticed your stiry and thought I would givve my 2 cents. Dylexia and school don't mix I have the same problem at my school the administraion doesn't care. Thats why I suggest getting your son tested bye an idepedent sicologist I know it may be alot of money but it is best to catch dyslexia as soon as possible, now it's important to remember that dyslexia does't make some one stupid it makes it dificult to read do math and spell as im shure you can see dylexia in some cases as in mine makes learning a laguage impossible no joke I studead for 14 hours for a spanish test and got a D- on it but if you find a good tutor he/she maybe be able to decrease alot of your sons symtems of dylexia. In fact some of the most sucssesful people in the world are dyslexic alber enstien walt disnea the kinkos owner. It's also important to not yell at you kid when he / she come home with a bad grade if your son is like me he will already feel like crap even though he doesn't show it hope this helps

How can I find out if my daughter is Dyslexic? She misses out words when she reads, she writes things backwards- she could write a whole sentance backwards before but with a bit of extra support at school she has began to write correctly but still sometimes gets words backwards, she writes/reads numbers backwards, she's only 6yrs old and the school have not picked up on the possibility that she may be dyslexic or maybe they feel she is too young to tell yet, but I really need to know so I can support her the right way!!
Does anyone have any suggestions??

Hi I am convinced my son has dyslexia and have been requesting that he has a formal dyslexia test since he was in the reception class. My son is almost 8 now and i have still not managed to get this test!!!
The school my son goes to have been great and he does have a senco worker 4 hours a week (the government must think this is enough and will not release additional funding). Apparently my poor depressed little boy must perform more monkey tricks before the measley amount of cash is awarded to him for this all important test which will allow aids to be put in place to allow him to start learning. I have even been advised by the school that the person who gave him a short assessment thinks he is dyslexic. I think the government want to look at themselves before blaming schools for poor performers as there would not be as many if the government issued the funding needed!!!

I work with students with learning difficulties and have found that reading is the easiest thing to teach. If a child is having trouble with basic reading, use decoding to teach them to read. For a child that can read but is a struggling reader, this method will improve their fluency. When writing paragraphs, use a simple formula -- an introductory sentence, three to five fact-based sentences and a concluding sentence that refers back to the introductory sentence.

the school cant do any thing for him unless he has dyslexia witch can be confirmed by a occupational therapist, then the school must accommodate to his needs, i too have dyslexia and at 22 have almost over came it (thank bill gates for spell-check) and i keep sharp with reading at least one big book every year or by reading Wikipedia

I am a mother of a 15 year old boy with dyslexia. I would like to form a coalition of parents of children with dyslexia. I live in Florida & my son attends a public school where ther is no funding for certified teachers that can teach a dyslexia child. There are special ED classes however that can not accomodate a dyslexic child. ADD/ADHD seems to be all that they will accomodate. As many of you parents are aware there is very little in common with the academic curriculm although the symptoms are similar. During our economic times our great country is more interested in building roads that are providing employment for mostly of the male gender & not compromising on the effect this is having on the female single parent. Yet completely forgetting that the children are the future of this great country. I can be emailed at [email protected] if I have your support.

This web site has a huge volume of information for free: http://www.brightsolutions.us/

It deatails all the warning signs, even the early ones. It also exposes where there is overlap to other issues. They do sell their seminars and other products, but they give so much away for free that it is still worth going to the site.

Keep fighting.....I had exactly the same when my child was at school (now aged 19 and off to Uni). We have just paid for an assessment and he has spelling, reading and short term memory problems but has a very high IQ. We were fobbed off throughout his time at school from primary (he is dyslexic but not dyslexic enough!) to secondary where I requested his SEN paperwork after he left and half of it had never been forwarded to me....I was appalled that there were documents that I had never seen. He has been called lazy and told he will never get anywhere in life by some of his teachers. Well University is somewhere!!! If you can afford it and you want support from the school, private testing may be a way to go. If not ask for the EP to do an assessment. Schools know that SpLd's cost so do shy away from diagnosis. Basic phonics and multi sensory learning will all help. And reading (not necessarily books, could be anything) out loud for 5-10 mins a day will all help. Mnemonics are another way to help with remembering basic spellings. Good luck, hope all goes well.
