Dyslexia is really not funny!

Dyslexics of the world, UNTIE! Have you ever seen that on a t-shirt? I have and while it's sort of haha funny, it's not at all funny to those suffering for it. Ex hubby #1 (also referred to as the guy who taught me how to get properly divorced) had that in school and it was very frustrating for him. I suspect I know others who have it as well.

Back when I was working with children, I took a few courses on it and there wasn't a whole lot that could be done to actually "fix" it. Now there is free help for dyslexia. Children with dyslexia quickly learn how to compensate to the best of their ability making it hard to notice at first glance. Since it's such a hard disorder to detect in the school environment, parents need to be very diligent in reading with their children and paying attention to see if there are any signs of a problem. If you think you might need to spend some extra time reading with your child to help them feel comfortable and confident, download the free courses and give it a try.

Press Release:
Dyslexia? Now there is Free Help

Now there is free online help for people who have dyslexia or simply did not learn to read well while going to school. It is a click-‘n-learn program. Students and adults may learn decoding, basic reading skills, and advanced reading skills all with the click of a mouse.

The program is called ReadingBySix. It provides a systematic approach to helping people defeat dyslexia and related reading problems. You will notice measurable progress from week to week provided participants are active in their studies and do their assignments. The online courses are virtually free when you give a small donation. If you choose not to donate, they are completely free.

Dyslexia is a distinct learning disability characterized by difficulties in decoding individual words. These difficulties may not show up in other cognitive and academic abilities. Dyslexia results from the confusion caused by the brain’s inability to associate abstract symbols with abstract ideas. This includes associating letters and words with the sounds they represent. The key to defeating dyslexia is learning to decode English sounds.

You are invited to review the website and take a few of the courses for practice and learn how the program works. Then use it to teach your children or students to read. It can be used for preschool, home school, grade school, or high school. Students, adults, and children can use it. It teaches reading 100% of the time and it’s all electronic. If you know of people who need help, please tell them about ReadingBySix: http://www.dyslexiadecoded.com/
