You can prevent your child from having dyslexia at an early age!

This recent article from Science Daily shows that toddlers who are at risk of being dyslexic can prevent going through that painful and frustrating condition through consistent and specific exercises.  Here are some excerpts from the article that you can find online at:  http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2008/08/080821110412.htm

“Atypical characteristics of children’s linguistic development are early signs of the risk of developing reading and writing disabilities, or dyslexia. New research points to preventive exercises as an effective means to tackle the challenges children face when learning to read.”

“(R)esearch has dug deep into how to predict and prevent difficulties in learning to read and write. The study involved a comparison between 107 children whose either parent is dyslexic and a control group of children without a hereditary predisposition to dyslexia. The researchers followed intensively the development of the predisposed children, from their birth through to school age.”

“(T)he predictors of reading and writing difficulties are evident primarily in two contexts: on the one hand as a delayed ability to perceive and mentally process the subtleties of a person’s voice, on the other hand as a sluggishness in naming familiar, visually presented objects. When approaching the age when they acquire the ability to read, the children seem to have more difficulties than expected to store in their memory the names and corresponding sounds of letters.”
