Help with dyslexia


I have a part time student who has suffered from dyslexia all her life and normally doesn't talk about it - mainly as a result of the patronising way in which she has been dealt with in the past. She holds down a good job and has huge potential but is held back by her problems with the written word. (It only came to light when she handed in a written assignment.) Her problems are most acute with "little" words like there/their, here/hear etc. She has had specialist help in the past but at high financial cost, which she cannot afford. Does anyone know any sources of help that she might access? The Internet and CD Rom seem obvious solutions because they allow her to practice at her own speed and at minimal cost but I haven't been able to find anything in my searches so far.

    Recommend you to log on to for useful and practical information. I have used it to pass on valuable info to a concerned parent with similar problem. You can register as it is FREE! Also, recommend you to get hold of a copy of and read “The Gift of Dyslexia : Why Some of the Smartest People Can’t Read and How They Can Learn” by Ronald D. Davis. It contains some very practical execises to remedy the reading/writing problem as you have described. Good Luck

  2. dyslexia

    I run Quantum Reading which shows you how to ‘read’ using peripheral vision. The programme has helped a lot of dyslexics and i would like to help your client/student.

    Because i cannot guarentee a result I am happy to offer a place for £100. If it works she can pay the balance of £464. If it does not work to her satisfaction then she will owe me nothing.

    Apart form the above please call me on 01784 44 04 04 to discuss other ideas.

    Regards etc
