Dyslexia Super Tool?

Dyslexia: News from the web:

After years of research, Carlsbad eye doctor and Dyslexia expert, Dr. David Bloch, has developed new super tools that correct reading disabilities in record time. His Reading Without Limits program is so unique that it has a patent pending. Most reading specialists believe that earlier readers need to learn word recognition by decoding phonetic patterns.  Dr. Bloch contends that phonics, sight words, picture cues, and even verbal cues are not critical in learning to read.

When the brains develop reading

Dyslexia: News from the web:

Research results show that brain regions in the reading network change more in first and second grade. Reading interventions such as speech therapy often start only in the third year, because there must be an ongoing problem. But by then, the reading grid will no longer be plastic. If you want to prevent further deficits, it is best to intervene when these brain areas are most likely to improve.

In further development of the reading regions on the left side of the brain, they no longer found any structural differences between dyslexic and non-dyslexic children. They develop similarly. But discrimination that already existed in preschool age is no longer compensated for without early intervention.
