  • Maurice Handford United Kingdom I am a dyslexic, think that's how you spell it. Anyways I normally find when reading my eyes can get lost on a page and jump around trying to find the word I last read. I find coloured over lays or glasses help this from happening. However having the course written as you have with bold and normal font throughout the course information I found it much easier to study. I am guessing this has been done on purpose and not as a random accident. So I thought it was worth mentioning. Other than this I have learnt alot of useful information. some of which I have already required from private investigation to my own difficulties. With education and the written word. Although the one thing that no one seems to state it that the individual will not get anywhere if he/she doesn't first ackonwledge that they have a problem and we are very good at hiding within the school system due to fear of the posible come backs from the so called normal people/kids dependant on your age group. Sociality as a whole is not kind to difference. Anyways thank you for the opertunity to learn and for the free education. I have enjoyed it and will continue. I'm alot slower at this kind of stuff than my sister, it has taken awhile to get through the content and i have had to you a dictionary at times but its all good fun and well worth it. 2014-04-15 14:04:16

  • Lyndon Williams United Kingdom Observing different views and perspectives of dyslexia may well be beneficial and compliment one another.I feel this will deepen our understanding of the idea of dyslexia being defined as abnormal or otherwise. 2013-04-18 14:04:08
  • Catherine Gabaldoni United Kingdom Dylexia begins when children begin to read.. they may learn using a visual recognition of words... they do not get the phonological make up of words. 2013-04-18 11:04:42
