Miranda’s mom read a list of dyslexia symptoms and a battle followed.
This test for dyslexia is interesting, but it rarely gets to the root causes of the problem
Dad thought dyslexia meant his daughter was dumb.
Not realizing that geniuses like Einstein, Edison, Disney, Schwab and Branson had or have this “problem”.
Miranda’s school was even stranger. Like most schools, they do not test for dyslexia — they test for a learning disability — and dyslexia is a learning disability, but until recently, dyslexia has been a dirty word for too many parents and professionals.
. Rather than focusing on the Symptoms of Dyslexia or Dyslexia programs, we took a far different path. First, we realized our daughter learned differently. She learned best when she saw and experienced information. We helped our daughter to improve her reading comprehension 4.2 grade levels in 7 months. Not with a dyslexia program, but with a program that taught the way she learns best. Then we discovered three things:
– 62% of the students today learn best when the student sees and experiences information
– Most of these smart kids who learn differently have an attention, visual tracking and/or related issues
– Parents make the difference for these students who learns differently
The good news is that with a program that taught to her strengths and identified her attention and visual tracking issues, Miranda was able to improve her reading comprehension by 4 grade levels in 6 months, double her reading speed and be on grade level.
Sure beats worrying about the word dyslexia.
We operate in a no label zone and focus on helping our students to go from Stress to Success
