A Traditional Dyslexia Treatment May Not Make The Difference for a Visual Learner with Dyslexia
When you call a professional for a dyslexia treatment, you can get very varying responses. The extremes are:
- We have had chiropractors say they can cure dyslexia in two session sessions with their dyslexia treatment
- We have had the more traditional phonics based provider say the dyslexia treatment could takes 1 to 3 years – these people have a well documented approach — that is often focused on improving reading fluency — how well a child reads out loud.
- Private schools may embed a dyslexia treatment into their program and too often we have seen parents spent in excess of $100000 over several years, and reading comprehension is often still a major issue
For our daughter, my realized that each dyslexia treatment helped a little, but when my wife shifted to capitalize on our daughter being a visual learner, she was able to develop an approach that allowed our daughter to improve her reading comprehension 4.2 grade levels in 7 months — achieving what has become our goal —

Dyslexia Treatment for the Visual Learner with dyslexia
Now that our dyslexia treatment has helped hundreds of visual learners with dyslexia, we realize that:
- Many students with dyslexia can also be defined as a visual learner with dyslexia – -a student who learns best when he or she sees and experiences information and who has a problem with the sound symbol relationships
- – The intelligence level of students with dyslexia vary greatly. If one uses a common definition, that dyslexia is with students of average or above average intelligence, then most dyslexic students can achieve success in months and not years. If you include students with lower IQs, than it becomes much more difficult to project outcomes
- Most of the students with dyslexia we were seeing were visual learners. According to research done by the Gifted Development Center, visual learners make up 62% of the student population. We suspect most dyslexic students are visual learners — who learn best when the student sees and experiences information
- Virtually every visual learner with dyslexia we see has either an attention and/or eye teaming issue — with over half having both
- You want to partner with professionals who teach the way your child learns best and who will help you to identify and address the relevant challenges
We believe the right dyslexia treatment is one that first diagnosis how your child learns best, where your child is strong, and what issues are holding your child back.
The trick is to first find the professional or professionals who can help you do that, and then to find the professional or professionals who have the expertise and the experience to help your child to succeed and to train you to be the coach and advocate your child needs.
