Fantastic post Belinda. As a mother of a dyslexic DS in Y11, I whole heartily agree with what you said.

Love the reference to One Direction...I have a daughter who is not dyslexic but does appear to have some very strange problems whenever these appear on the radio or tv.... although some time ago a teacher did suggest she might be dyspraxic - I don't think that's the case either, I think she just has terrible taste in music. :lol:

Very interesting, Belinda, a great post :D

:lol: Just a word of caution though on this very useful thread. The definition of dyslexia is not clear - there are many different ones, the causes are not clear (although there is a lot of evidence that poor phonological skills are at the root of the majority of cases of "dyslexia"), and the symptoms are varied.

Gaining the label "dyslexic" is sometimes useful as it gets the child or adult some kind of help, or some extra time in exams, or it makes them go "phew" now I know it's dyslexia that's OK I feel a lot better I thought it was because I was very stupid.

However, it's not always useful. Sometimes it sticks "badly" - the child is diagnosed young as having dyslexia, everyone makes excuses right the way through for the child, no-one thinks the child can ever learn to read accurately and spell well. Maybe what was needed in some cases of "dyslexia" (maybe not the true cases of "dyslexia") is some more thorough and explicit teaching in learning to read well and spell well.
