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.

    New to Dyslexia

    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...

    Diagnosing Dyslexia

    Hi everyone I am visiting the group and I will probably bring up a topic that has already been discussed and I will apologize now. However, I wanted to know how a DX is given for dyslexia if the person already has multiple conditions that could mimic dyslexia? My son is dyspraxic and I know dyslexia goes hand in hand with it in many patients. However, my son also has multiple language disorders...

    what careers are good choices for dyslexics?

    Hi, I am not dyslexic, but my nephew is. His mother is concerned that he shows little interest in anything (besides Star Wars games) and is not really passionate about any subject. He is 14 years old and quite smart (I think). He is very good at putting things together - like vacuum cleaners and anything with parts that needs some assemnbly. He does not read the directions, he just does it. But...

    So I've been getting very frustrated with myself over this and everyone I talk to says it's probably dyslexia (especially since my dad has it) but it's never been bad enough to be diagnosed because I've been able to read "fine." At work I constantly get numbers jumbled up when I'm reading totals to people, I can't spell and sometimes write the letters in the wrong order, and I have a hard time...

    Good Evening. I am currently doing a project on creating a product to aid the learning of dyslexic children. My product is a Rubik's cube with letters on it, so instead of matching the colors, the children will match the letters into simple 3 letter words. A part of my project is to get comments from dyslexic people or people who have experience with dyslexic people on my product, and I would...

  • I have filed an appeal against Somerset County Council's decision to refuse an EHC needs assessment of my child over a week ago. The courts have informed me that although I filed everything correctly they will not put the appeal through until I have included a mediation certificate. The local authority failed to inform me about a mediation certificate when they told me I could appeal against...

    Need HELP! Grade 1 with severe dyslexia

    I am a speech therapy student currently working with a grade 1 with severe dyslexia. She is learning to recognize the letters of the alphabet now with plasticine letters, but I feel she needs to learn the sounds to the letters (phonics). I just did a test with her to see how sensitive she is to speech sounds/phonology, and she could not even do the first question. So, this little one really...
