Kansas Legislators raise concerns about schools reaching dyslexic students

It is another word for poor curriculum, I call it curriculum disabled. Just because a child has not been taught well does not mean it is the child. You must to teach to every learning avenue of a student. You need a multi sensory approach to deliver what you want your students to learn. I recommend you read Dr. Hilde Mosse, M.D. book, “The Complete Handbook of Children’ Reading Disorders,” assembled scientific facts that proves beyond logical doubt that absence of phonics in beginning reading programs started the path to illiteracy in America. She said, “It took painstaking examination of children to make me realize that reading and writing disorders were not necessarily signs of psychopathology or organic defects, but may instead be consequences of inappropriate teaching methods."

Spalding Writing Road to Reading is listed on the Johns-Hopkins list. I do not want to teach children to read. I want teachers to be taught in teachers college so they will have this skill for all chilren who struggle to learn to read.

I'm so sorry, the program I use, "The Writing Road to Reading," would have taught your brother to spell. My kids were spelling words like chrysanthemum, metamorphosis and embryology in first grade because they learned the rules of our language. We speak 45 sounds, we write them using 25 single letters and combination of 2, 3 and 4 letters to spell those sounds 70 ways. Combined with 30 spelling rules you can read, write and spell 95% of the English language.

Re- read the article, I never once said my son had dyslexia. He was not taught to read in first grade and they said it was because of his learning disabilities, they were wrong! He was curriculum disabled. Once he was taught with REAL phonics, he was an excellent student who graduated college on the Dean's list. I have taught many children to read that have been labeled dyslexic. Explicit phonics instruction prevents reading failure.

How did you see my youngest sons medical records? Oh that is right you have not. He is diagnosed with mercury/heavy metal encephalopathy. His only exposure to mercury is from vaccines. He was not born here in Lawrence by the power plants. You don't know what you don't know! Call me, I can clear up your confusion unless you want to remain anonymous.

texburgh wow, do I know you? Call me I will teach you the spelling rules. I have taught over 500 kids learn to read with scientific, research based explicit phonics. I'm sorry your son did not have the right phonics. You must know the authentic to detect the impostor! I do not know of any one else in Douglas county that teacher explicit phonics. Reading issue are nothing knew. Dr. Seuss said, "I think killing phonics was one of the greatest causes of illiteracy in the county."

Vital vaccines

I'm surprised at the Lj World stance on vaccines since they seem to be against Obama Care and mandated health care. Forced vaccines are socialized, mandated medicine and healthcare!

Educate yourself about vaccines from these two doctors who have studied vaccines.
