What's Up with a Label?
What does the label “dyslexia” really tell you? Since there are no two cases of dyslexia that are alike, it actually says very little. A dyslexic’s “fingerprint” is different from anyone else who has a dyslexia “fingerprint” or any other “fingerprint” for that matter.
Case in point, we have successfully worked three-dimensionally with children who come with over 86 different learning disability labels. As people continue to try to pigeonhole dyslexia, we believe that in the next five years there will be another 3 to 5 labels created for some aspect of dyslexia. It’s maddening, but oh so real.
About 15 years ago, I gave up on the label-name game. I came to the conclusion that labels don’t lead to solutions. They may result in an educational crutch, or possibly some kind of financial aid, but the point of education is to gain knowledge and manipulate that knowledge so that one can be of service to their family, community, and/or profession. What is important is the solution, and labels simply don’t create solutions.
When asked what dyslexia is, so many people will tell you it’s seeing letters upside down and/or in reverse order, or writing all kinds of distorted text creations, or the person with dyslexia simply has trouble reading and writing.
These are just a few symptoms of dyslexia, but what causes them?
The dominant cause of reading disability symptoms is the function of the Mind’s Eye that inconsistently follows the confusion generated by meeting abstract words and symbols in a text. Over 90% of the time, these symptoms, and others like them, can be cleared up by playing the free mobile game Sky Village – Trail of Spells.
Sky Village – Trail of Spells will help your child begin to explore their reading and writing creativity and imagination as they begin to enjoy learning.
So, as you usher out the need for a label, usher in the wonder-filled fun of the game of Sky Village – Trail of Spells.
