No parent would ever want to see his child struggle in school much more in the area of reading—the very core foundation to learning every subject there is in school. This is far worse for the child. The fear of being labelled and teased as stupid, dumb and slow is something he has to face and live with every day. It could even be aggravated by his own sense of the teacher’s perception of his condition- LAZY. NOT TRYING HARD ENOUGH. DOES NOT FOCUS WELL. ABSENT-MINDED. The fear even becomes bigger when the school strongly implies that your child is simply a poor student.
You have somehow heard about it or read it in one of your researches. Your closest friends could have told you to have your child tested and checked but your inner core just tells you otherwise. This is not true. My child just needs more time. He will outgrow this. His teachers may not be doing well enough. You are in a state of denial. But as you constantly see that things are just getting worse for your child, you’ve got nothing else to do but face the fact. Dyslexia is REAL.
Dr. Sally Shaywitz, a world renowned physician and dyslexia expert along with the National Institute of Health in USA reveal that 1 out of 5 people is affected by Dyslexia. It crosses racial, ethnic and socio-economic lines. Dyslexia is an unexpected difficulty in reading or interpret words or even symbols even if learner has already been subjected to appropriate learning reading process. “Unexpected, meaning it occurs even in people who are quite intelligent and highly creative.”
The sad thing about those affected by this hidden learning disability is that 95% of them are left undiagnosed. Schools lack the resources to help them. Children who cannot read are marginalized and left to struggle, ultimately risk falling behind in school and eventually in life. Teachers and parents who are supposed to be the first to know are actually clueless of what is happening. A child has only one life to live. He can’t wait and live a life stigmatized by a condition that he is not responsible at all. Nothing is more difficult than silently fighting an invisible opponent everyday of your life in and out of school.
