Optometris awarded

Dyslexia: News from the web:

 A Holland-area optometrist received national recognition Friday for the progress one of his patients made in optometric vision therapy that allowed him to read easily after years of struggling.

“He really did all the work we told him what to do and he made so much progress,” development optometrist Dr. Neil Renaud said. ”(He) has seen so many hurdles that were in the way for him for reading, like double vision and blurry vision and letters moving on the page, dyslexia, getting lost all the time. He’s enjoying reading now for the first time in his life. … He’s the one who had a life-changing experience that he’s going to carry forever.”

A high-schooler deals with dylexia

Wonderful story on how a high schooler deals with dyslexia.

After some trial and error, she’s found a method that’s working for memorizing new vocabulary. She creates flashcards early in the unit and relies on repetition — reading the words and definitions to herself, reading them aloud, answering my questions at breakfast and dinner. Last-minute cramming isn’t an option.
