Dyslexia Support Group

Dyslexia refers to any reading difficulty not associated with obvious problems (such as bad eyesight). Dyslexias include the inability to name letters, to read words or sentences, or to recognize words directly even though they can be sounded out. Dyslexia is not limited to reversing the order of letters in reading or writing; it may, for instance, include unexpected spelling mistakes.

    Helping people understand learing disabilityies is hard. When I was a child it was really hard to understand and I was placed in a group with a variety of children who were unsucessful for some reason, which I should not have been placed in. I was not dumb. I was not unable to learn. I was just slow at processing.This is a ideo I like to use to teach others. It is a little dated, but I recomend...

    My son was just recently diagnosed with Dyslexia.  He has to work harder than everybody else. I hate to see him upset because his peers are calling him stupid or slow. I have had concerns ever since Kindergarten with him.  It just took him so long to do homework and relied on memorization. I was told some of his issues would work itself out by second grade. In second grade, I asked his teacher...
