Dyslexic Achiever

"I never read in school. I got really bad grades--D's and F's and C's in some classes, and A's and B's in other classes. In the second week of the 11th grade, I just quit. Almost everything I learned, I had to learn by listening. My report cards always said that I was not living up to my potential."

What is the solution?

People with dyslexia often need a structured language program. Emphasis of such programmes is on the individual phonetic sound of words in speech, reading, and writing, rather than on memorizing complete words. Following multisensory modalities: hearing, touching, writing, and speaking, in teaching such children is very important. This instruction can best be provided by professionals who have specialized training in programs for dyslexic students.
