is there any way to fix Dyslexia??
In my time studying at teachers college, I've dealt with a bunch of children with various learning difficulties. There's no magic way to fix them, but I've found the best thing that helps is a good teacher- someone who isn't afraid to try new things and find new ways of helping a student achieve to their full potential. If the teacher shows no interest inputting in a bit extra effort, or ignores you entirely, BE PERSISTENT! Another thing that helps is having people around who are non judgemental and prepared to lend a hand if needed. Whatever you do, don't let anyone convince your child that dyslexia is a shortcoming- too many children I've met have used their dyslexia as an excuse for what they can't do, when in reality, they just approach problems slighty differently to people who don't have dyslexia. And goodness knows we can always use someone who thinks a little differently! :)
Dear lila15, Dyslexia is a problem with the chromosomes so there is nothing you can take such as pill or medicine to correct this. What is said to work is teaching the child how to work with their problem. There are many programs out there that help with spelling, word recognition and socializing. Each person is different and some may have short term memory loss or anger problems. What we do know for sure is that people with dyslexia have normal or above normal IQs. Sue...good luck
you have to practice and train your brain and eyes to connect better. It will get better but it will take work.
