People with Dyslexia are often of gifted intelligence, but have a hard time learning to read the way other students do. Dyslexia can take so many forms that parents and teachers may not realize a student is struggling with reading and/or math. Many times children reverse numbers and letters and that is what most people commonly consider to be the first indication of a dyslexic student. However, there are many other factors to look for that may be less obvious. For example: 1. Try to determine if the letters float off the page when your child reads. 2. Does your child see bubbles with letters inside on the page, and 3. finally, does the child read line by line or in a Z fashion on the page. These are types of reading tracking problems that can be helped with proper training. Also, testing to be certain the problem is not reading comprehension or a processing issue is important. Dyslexia is a learning disability and students should have an Individual Education Plan under Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. Do not hesitate to ask the school guidance counselor or principal to arrange testing and an IEP meeting for your child. You should attend and be ready to ask for all services offered by your school system including at least: extra test time, accommodated homework- especially if reading is involved, tutoring, help with a reading specialist and no credit off for mispelled words.
