Found this post of a Dyslexia awareness evening (Michigan) as part of Dyslexia Awareness month (USA) to discuss symptoms and teaching methods that help kids learn. Unfortunately no mention of the difference changing the colour of the paper can make, for the child who is struggling with learning.
I would love to see that month included in Australian calendars!
Many dyslexics have above average IQs and have devised their own ingenious strategies to cover up the difficulties they are having! So we, as teachers, are often not aware of how much they are really struggling.
Parents know and should always follow their instincts and persevere to get help for their child.
