Phonics for Dyslexia?

by | Intensive Phonics | 1 comment

I came across your web page after searching for inductive/deductive reasoning. After putting off I have finally taken that English course I so very much need. I have put it off for so many years due to Dyslexia. It makes the written word an intimidating task. I am 40 years old and even writing a thank you letter can be a chore. If you gave me the task of speaking before 1000 people I would not have even close to the same anxiety as writing a short letter (I will proof read this several times before sending). So with that said I also read the blog on 10 Things To Do with Your Child Before 10. The Q&A on dyslexia, well you need to re-read your section on reasoning. May I suggested a book called the The Gift of Dyslexia by Ron Davis. As a dyslexic it was very helpful and you can use pictures to asst w/ reading/words/letters. Because that is how a dyslexics brain works. These people are not lazy, they think differently from you, consider yourself lucky and not right in your singular method of teaching. I never attended secular school and I also never got assistance with my dyslexia until adulthood. It made for extremely low self confidence and has effected the course of life. Through God’s grace he has lead me to the right people and resources to greatly decrease my feeling of being stupid. So I hope this helps, but phonics is not the only answer and combo will work best. –Kelley
