Dyslexia iterally means a child has difficulty with reading. Many programs focus on phonics, when the child learns best with a hands-on approach
Specifically most children with dyslexia:
- Are right-brained and have what we call right-brained dyslexia -- they learn best when they see and experience information and will learn best in every situation where they can see and experience what is being taught
- Have difficulty with reading comprehension, math word problems and with standardized tests, because they have not learned how to leverage their ability to visualize what they are reading
- Respond very well to cause and effect demonstrations -- especially if they get to discover the why
Dyslexia symptoms tend to focus on phonics and receptive and expressive language. For those with right-brained dyslexia, we believe the symptoms of dyslexia should focus on both their ability to learn best when they see and experience information and their challenges.
