Wow, Canada does not support dyslectic kids??

Dyslexia: News from the web:

A very critical article in the Canadian Newspaper “Globe and Mail” about the lack of dyslexia support. An excerpt:

Sadly, Canada stumbles along. Authorities here prefer to label children who have difficulty reading, spelling and decoding as simply having a learning disability or LD. They get little or no immediate assistance. Our schools prefer to use the “wait-and-see” approach – wait for three years to see if the child improves. If no improvement occurs, then the child may be considered for psychological assessment that could take another two to three years.

The benefits of handwriting

Dyslexia: News from the web:

IN TODAY’S high-tech world, lengthy handwritten letters are a rarity. E-mail, text messages, Viber and Facebook Messenges have replaced handwritten letters.

Learn to read and change your brain

Dyslexia: News from the web:

A new study has found that deep areas of the brain are re-purposed to create the neural network necessary for acquiring literacy skills. Luckily, even the adult brain can undergo this process with relative ease.

if just a few months of literacy education can lead to fundamental changes in the thalamus, then the hypothesis that dyslexia may be caused by thalamus dysfunctions will need further study. One possible way of investigating this would be to check for thalamus dysfunction in preschool children (who have not yet begun to read) from families with a history of dyslexia.

The growth mindset for Dyslexia

Dyslexia: News from the web:

Gravity Goldberg says that struggle is part of reading, not a unique experience to students learning to read. It’s common to start a book and be confused, or to read a passage and miss something, but teachers don’t often make it clear how universal that experience is, no matter one’s reading level. Rather than being assignors, monitors and managers, Goldberg coaches teachers to see themselves as miners, mirrors, models and mentors.
