Private School for Dyslexia Not What We'd Hoped

I realize that many zip codes do not have a specialized school dedicated to dyslexia, and I can understand the unfairness of that. But in our case, we have one! And of course we were thrilled when a private school opened up a couple years ago that specialized in teaching dyslexics. Unfortunately, we do not believe the school is well run. And we believe the academic side of it is not well managed either. We ...

Dyslexia and Eye Movement

I am not a pscyhologist, but I recently read an article in 'the Pscyhologist' about eye tracking and neurological conditions.

https://thepsychologist.bps.org.uk/volu ... and-psyche

Essentially eye movement varies across a range of such conditions. This relates to spatial information and 'attention'.

This in turn is raising the possibility that eye tracking will be used a diagnostic tool in the future.

Dyslexia was not mentioned in this article, but there is ...

On Demand Speaking

I've had a successful career so far. I'm a systems engineer for a well-known software company. The team I'm a part of designs and manages critical infrastructure. As an individual, I've been very successful. I excel at robust system design and troubleshooting, which is how I got to where I am.

However, my career has hit a major roadblock. While I am good at designing and building technical systems, I'm awful at vocalizing ideas. I'm ...

Age requirement?

Has anyone noticed the stigma attached to a person with dyslexia? Often, if the topic is searched, results come back with info regarding your 'child.' If the topic is discussed, others interpret you are speaking of your own child or when you were little.

Adult with mild dyslexia...need help?

Hi there.

I'll try and keep this short: basically, growing up I was always a little slower than the others in class. I remember specifically having problems with putting things in the correct order, and then I recall getting very anxious and not being able to follow steps very easily. When I look back, I remember feeling very confused and anxious in school as a kid. I was a bit slow with reading, and my ...
