Dyslexia affects the way the brain deals with information.
It can make it hard to read and write and to remember things.
It has NOTHING to do with intelligence and does not mean a person is ‘stupid’.
Albert Einstein had it – nobody would call him unintelligent.
Children with dyslexia have difficulty in learning to read despite traditional instruction, at least average intelligence, and an adequate opportunity to learn. It is caused by an impairment in the brain’s ability to translate images received from the eyes or ears into understandable language. It does not result from vision or hearing problems. It is not due to mental retardation, brain damage, or a lack of intelligence.
Dyslexia can go undetected in the early grades of schooling. Children can become frustrated by the difficulty in learning to read, and other problems can arise that disguise dyslexia. They may show signs of stress and low self confidence. Behavior problems at home, as well as at school, often manifest. Children may become unmotivated and develop a dislike for school, and their success there may be jeopardized if the problem remains untreated.
This CD is designed for students who are struggling with academics and learning due to ‘dyslexia’. Learn strategies which will propel you towards excellence and ease your frustration in the classroom.
