  • Tracy I saw in the other post you mentioned a couple of your boys are dyslexic.....I was wondering what the first signs of that were? My middle son (the 6 year old) seems to read a lot of things backwords and I didnt know if that was a sign or if it was just his age or what.....he does things like reads 'no' as 'on' or starts sounding things out starting with the last sound instead of the first, I noticed my daughter does something similar too, but she does it with writing her name which we have been working on and being she is only 4 I wasnt as concerned, I just thought by 6 it seemed a little more out of the ordinary, but I didnt know for sure....any info you or anyone has is great

  • There are literally more than 100 types of Dyslexia. I noticed it first in my sons when they were beginning to write. They would do the typical reversing of letters like "b" for "d" and "p" for "q". They also have trouble reading as you mentioned - skipping words, changing words, and having a hard time following each line as they read down the page. All can be worked on with time and patience, as is evident with my sons. They are flourishing now that they get one on one time.
    The schools labeled them "special ed" and that was really hard for them.
    They have passed all of their peers at home though!
