Do you think you may be dyslexic?

Dyslexic Advantage was co-founded by

Drs. Brock and Fernette Eide

50 million Americans, including 10 million school-aged children, are dyslexic and they comprise 80% of students in special education classrooms. In a recent nationwide survey conducted by Dyslexic Advantage, over half of parents were told by a principal or teacher that dyslexia is not recognized by their school system. The Secretary of Education recently confirmed that there is no dyslexia-specific curriculum or plan for these students which has serious consequences for these children because they think and learn differently than other non-dyslexic students and require methods of instruction that are suited to their way of learning and thinking. Today, Dyslexic Advantage (DA) is breaking the cycle of negative in school systems and workplaces by revolutionizing how dyslexic people are understood, educated, and employed. We’re replacing the old and outmoded deficit-centered paradigm with a new and more productive strengths-centered paradigm that puts abilities rather than weaknesses at the heart of what it means to be dyslexic.

Understanding Severe Dyslexia [Premium]

Understanding Severe Dyslexia [Premium]

What is Severe Dyslexia? Although almost every comprehensive talks about dyslexia varying severity (mild, moderate, severe), but surprisingly little research has been conducted about successfully intervening for children and adults with severe dyslexia, although there are signs that things are beginning to change. Much of current dyslexia legislation efforts are directed at trying to include “phonological processing” into definitions of dyslexia or teacher training programs, however, for dyslexia is much more than that, and a recent study of Tier 3 students in RTI (Response to Intervention) showed that intensive Tier 3 intervention consisting of daily and smaller group instruction involving “explicit, teacher-directed instruction in phonemic awareness and phonics, with the opportunity to apply skills in connected text with teacher feedback” showed “disappointing outcomes of the […]

The Letter – Getting a Good Start to the School Year [Premium]

The Letter – Getting a Good Start to the School Year [Premium]

  If you’re the parent of a student with significant academic challenges due to dyslexia, dysgraphia, or dyscalculia, crafting a letter is a familiar ritual.   THE GOALS The big picture goals are for your student to have a good year – to enjoy being at school, to be developing in all areas, and to have good relationships with teachers, the school in general, and friends. But all students don’t start the school year on the same footing. If your student is below grade level in reading and is trying to overcome anxiety and/or feelings of failure, she or he may be bringing that to school before the first bell rings. THE CHALLENGE The challenge is that many teachers may not have had training in […]

AI for College Admissions [Premium]

AI for College Admissions [Premium]

With more colleges and universities waiving standardized tests for admissions, many college advisors are recognizing the importance of college application essays in the process. Rightly or wrongly, AI is also having considerable impact on college applications. For students who struggle with writing and writing about themselves, having a way to start the essay can greatly ease the stress on the application process. It is possible to use ChatGPT to help you build a professional sounding resume, but also use it to personalize an essay, tailor it to particular schools, and give different versions that help students choose the best fit to what they want to say. In one video, a tutor explains how she would chat to ChatGPT to generate different possible answers to application […]

Question: Multilingual Dyslexic Adult: How Best to Learn English Grammar [Premium]

Question: Multilingual Dyslexic Adult: How Best to Learn English Grammar [Premium]

A multilingual member of this community (who is also dyslexic) asked us for advice about improving grammar in English. Grammar is something that non-dyslexic people may pick up effortlessly and without conscious awareness as they read and listen to native speakers (Implicit Learning). Unfortunately, grammar cannot be learned in such a passive way by most dyslexic people. As a result, it must be learned explicitly and likely with multisensory strategies. Rule-based learning of English grammar is difficult and inefficient for many dyslexic learners. It is possible that pairing with a dyslexia tutor who has expertise writing and grammar for dyslexic adults (including those in higher education) may be able to help you in a step-by-step fashion addressing complex sentence structure. I do know college-bound and […]

Math Problems: Does It Matter If It’s Identified As A Math Disability? [Premium]

Math Problems: Does It Matter If It’s Identified As A Math Disability? [Premium]

There are millions of school children struggling with math at school. Does it matter if a student’s math struggles are identified formally as a math disability or dyscalculia? 40% of dyslexic people are likely to also have dyscalculia, but because dyscalculia is rarely assessed in schools, few individuals ever receive that designation. Does it matter? In the short term, some school professionals might say it does not matter much – because students who need help in math will get it if their scores qualify. What do we believe? Having a math LD formally identified can be helpful – although we realize that testing may not always be easily available. If you are a testing professional, consider adding the WIAT Math subtests to routine comprehensive battery […]

What are the Dyslexic Advantages?

Mission and Vision | Dyslexic Advantage

Scientific research shows that dyslexic children and adults process information differently from non-dyslexics and some of these changes may account for strengths in creative problem solving, entrepreneurial thinking, and certain types of learning and memory. An understanding of the advantage side of dyslexia is important for children to discover how they learn and remember best as well as for adults to find careers and work environments that allow them to work to their highest abilities.

Testimonials about Dyslexic Advantage

“Thankfully, the Dyslexic Advantage helped us tremendously with explaining everything to the kids. The change in perception of a dyslexia diagnosis helped our children with understanding why they were struggling and while their difficulties wouldn’t just simply vanish, they had a great many gifts BECAUSE they are dyslexic. It was a much more positive starting point than the school’s perspective that my kids were lazy or disabled and couldn’t succeed. I was so grateful for the book.”

“Beautiful work. There’s so much helpful content here.I ‘ll be recommending it to the parent support group and everyone else I meet who needs your resources. Congratulations! My best.”

“Love the magazine. My daughter is newly diagnosed and we’re still wading through this whole new world.

“Hi, I love your newsletter and your book. I run a dyslexia interest group at our high school in my own time. Please keep doing what you are doing, it is very inspirational and I am constantly sharing about your book.”

“This is absolutely amazing! I can not wait to share the information with my daughter that I have learned while reading this magazine!!! Thank you !! “m constantly sharing about your book.”

“I am so excited and happy that you are doing this! Dyslexia is so little understood and very much ignored in educational and other settings. Even after attempting to educate various individuals on the topic I find that they will still ask students to attempt inappropriate activities. Sadly, many don’t get it. Thank you for making this.”
