Forget the word dyslexia and focus on the gifts that Einstein, Edison, Disney, Schwab and Branson had or have — they learn differently and might have had what we call Right-Brain Dyslexia
When you read a list of dyslexia symptoms you might thing you understand it. When you read two or three lists of the symptoms of dyslexia it gets really confusing. A parent recently typed in Boca Raton Dyslexia and became very confused.
She quickly realized there were two dominant views of dyslexia and a third and very different approach. The three approaches could be summarized as follows:
– Dyslexia is a program with reading, writing and math
– Dyslexia is a problem with accurate and fluent word recognition, spelling and decoding challenges — difficulty sounding out words
– Dyslexia is a problem with reading, writing and math that is often caused by both a learning difference and attention, eye teaming and related issues
The following two definitions offer a medical and what we call a phonics-centric approach to Beating Dyslexia
What is dyslexia?
Dyslexia has been around for a long time and has been defined in different ways. For example, in 1968, the World Federation of Neurologists defined dyslexia as “a disorder in children who, despite conventional classroom experience, fail to attain the language skills of reading, writing, and spelling commensurate with their intellectual abilities.”
Q: What Is Dyslexia?
A: Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurological in origin.
It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and / or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction. Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede growth of vocabulary and background knowledge.
3D Learner Approach to What is Dyslexia
We take a very different approach to dyslexia, recognizing that there are all different types of dyslexia, and one that is becoming more prevalent is the concept of Right-Brain Dyslexia, where the biggest challenge is the student learns best when he or she sees and experiences information and the world keeps wanting to pump them with phonics, phonics and more phonics.
This visual captures the three challenges that most students with right-brain dyslexia have — the student learns differently and has either an eye-teaming and/or an attention challenge.
There is no simple Boca Raton Dyslexia Parent Guide, because each child is different. What we suggest you consider are the following questions:
– Is your child struggling in school?
– Does your child remember details from places visited, even from years ago?
– Does your child lose focus when your child is bored or frustrated?
– Does your child skip words and lines when reading?
– Are your child’s reading comprehension and test scores well below what you would expect?
What we have done is to provide a no cost tool that will allow you to understand if your child learns differently and has attention, eye teaming and related issues at
