Not the right idea about Dyslexia

Leave a comment

I have added this short film here, as I have rarely seen anything less accurate and more misleading or misunderstood. Especially the three categories of dyslexia and how to deal with it boggles my mind. Apparently dyslexics grow out of ‘developmental dyslexia’ and eventually catch up? Those with Trauma Dyslexia are practically lost – and so are children with Primary Dyslexia (apparently those who were genetically ‘afflicted’ with the disability) will never read beyond Year 4? Really? Please don’t take this seriously – there is not one type of dyslexia (if you wish to categorize it, which isn’t really that helpful) that cannot be corrected.

I have worked for 14 years with Dyslexic and Asperger geniuses one-on-one, founded Sydney Dyslexia and Autism Sydney, worked in Mosman and at a beach retreat at the Entrance and wrote three books on Dyslexia ('the Right Brain for the Right Time', 'Nurturing the Secret Garden' and 'Learning your Times Tables in Three Bold Steps'). I believe these children and adults have a great gift and the ability to become leaders in their field. But I have also found that a proper diet as well as educating and working together with parents, friends and teachers matters even more. I am now working with small groups at the Entrance Beach Retreat, helping dyslexic adults fulfill their professional dreams and parents to help develop and nurture their child's potential.
