I have a son who is Dyslexic. If I have learned one thing in the last year it is that there are several methods that people believe in when it comes to treating Dyslexia. For anyone to say negative things against any of them is very closed minded. Children and adult who live with dyslexia are all so different not only in what causes there state but also the severity of the dyslexia. For this reason I think as parents, educators, spouses, anyone that is trying to help these people needs to keep an open mind and try different techniques until they find the shoe that fits. For my child who is a visual spacial thinker the Davis Program was the shoe. We went down the Phonemic road for a year without success; this doesn't mean it wouldn't work for another person. So I believe that if we really want to help our loved ones and others with Dyslexia we need to publish what we think are positives and not negatives. The written word is very powerful and once someone sees something negative said they may choose not to venture down that road, this may cause a setback in the process of finding the help they need.

For all of you trying to find the right solution for your Dyslexic remember that it is out there. If you don't think one method is working try another. However, remeber that this is not something that will go away, it is as much a part of them as being left or right handed. They learn and process in there own way, you just need to find what makes it easier for them.

Utah Freemasons

The Freemasons have really done a lot of service for people. From the Knight Templar Eye Foundation, to the Scottish Rite "Rite Care" for children; to the regular masonic lodge charities in local communities.
