SPECIFIC LEARNING DISABILITY

 

Subtle invisible disturbances in the structure and function of the brain in the fetal stage can impair the way neurons-brain cells-interconnect and hence, carry information. Most learning disorders stem from the difficulty to compile information from various parts of the brain.


Dyslexia is not a disease to have and to be cured of, but a way of thinking and learning. Often, it is a gifted mind waiting to be found and taught.


If you are a dyslexic, this is the kind of mind you have. It is yours for life. You can teach it to work better and better, and you can congratulate yourself on its strengths and creative abilities.

 

eg. Mummy this the last you se me. I get punishment in the scholld every da. I canot bare it. Baabay.

 

When dealing with dyslexics, remember you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but with creatures of emotion, creatures bristling with prejudice and motivated by pride and vanity.
