More about dealing with dyslexia

What's It Like to Have Dyslexia?If you have dyslexia, you might have trouble reading even simple words. You might mix up the letters in a word, for example, seeing the word "now" as "won" or "left" as "felt." Words may blend together and spaces are lost.
Color codeing your letters help your child know the difference between vowels, constants and blends.
Also with dylexia kids you can color code their work. You only alow them to work one small section at a time. At the very begining put a green mark to let them know to start and a red mark to let them to stop till futher instructions. This really helps the stress levels.

Dealing with LD kids

Living and dealing Ld kids has not always been easy, but can be rewarding. My little girl KB and my middle child JB have AHHD, Dyslexia, Dysgraphia and Audio Processing disorder.
Even thou they both have the same problems you have to deal with each child completly different. This can be so stressfull at times because they both demand so much one on one.
Just in the past week my little Kb read a sign at a store. The look on her face was priceless. We were both excited. You might of thought we just won something. She looked at me just a smiling and said, " Momma, All that hard work is finally working."
I'm still researching and learning more about how to help my children.

If any comments or suggestions please feel free.
Thanks, Kitten
