Within a few weeks I was reading books well above grade level while my classmates continued to suffer.
Dyslexia is caused by this inane attack on reading ability, which has been proven time and again.
When my own son went to public school I had to step in and teach phonics to rescue him - his dyslexia disappeared soon after - and his reading ability improved to better than grade level.
How odd - I learned to read with the Dick & Jane books when I was four and a half, and was reading on a 12th grade level when I was nine. I attended a small private school - no one I went to school with ever had dyslexia or reading problems of any kind. We also had French reading and grammar starting in first grade, and nobody seemed to have trouble with that either.
