    Learning to tie their shoes



    Writing some letters or numbers backwards past the end of first grade



    Learning to tell time on a clock with hands



    Telling left from right. Confusing letter pairs such as b-d, b-p,p-q, or g-j



    Saying sounds in the right order in multi-syllable words such as animal, spaghetti, hamburger, consonant



    Handwriting: their letters don’t sit on the line, 

    there may be odd spacing between their words, 
    tall letters are sometimes written as short ones,
    tails don’t always hang below the line, 
    sentences often don’t start with capital letters, and 
    punctuation is often left out.

    Parent Talk Live: Black Males and Dyslexia

    in Education

    Dr. Mike Robinson, host of Parent Talk Live discusses Black Males and Dyslexia with his guest Shawn Anthony Robinson.  


    BIO:  Shawn Anthony Robinson, M.Ed, is a doctoral candidate at Cardinal Stritch University (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) in the Literacy and Language program. His concentration is on giftedness and dyslexia. Robinson brings a wealth of academic experience, training and knowledge about the psychological development of dyslexia, especially among Black males who have not tapped into their gifts because of their misdiagnosis and inability to read or spell. He is an emerging national speaker, and one of few scholars in the United States with a research focus on the scholarship, theory and literature addressing theoretical or psychological frameworks investigating twice-exceptional Black males who have dyslexia.


    Practitioners working with gifted Black males with dyslexia must understand how these students navigate educational systems, understand their unique learning styles, and how they construct knowledge through different sociocultural experiences, which are associated with their self-perception, self-esteem and sense of identity.

    Dyslexia Screening: Essential Concepts for Schools and Parents

    in Education

    Dyslexia Screening: Essential Concepts for Schools & Parents - Dr. Richard Selnick


    Dyslexia Screening: Essential Concepts for Schools & Parents presents an overview of the ‘nuts and bolts’ of what goes into a dyslexia screening program for schools. Helpful for parents too this guide presents material in clear, ‘down-to-earth’ terms.


    "Dyslexia Screening: Essential Concepts for Schools & Parents is a perfect compendium that enables educators to take a proactive stance in the early identification and remediation of dyslexia."
    - Steven G. Feifer, D.Ed., ABSNP – 2009 National School Psychologist of the Year


    "Dyslexia Screening:  Essential Concepts for Schools & Parents really helped our district get a handle on dyslexia – what it is, how to detect it and what to do about it, especially as we needed to implement the new state law.”
    - Patricia Moulton, M.S.W. Special Education Coordinator, Brooklawn School District


    "I wanted to let you how much I enjoyed your book. I especially appreciated that you point out the qualitative observations that should take place during assessment that can be so incredibly crucial. For example, using marks to show that a student took a long time to decode a word, even if they decoded it correctly. Your book will be a great resource for teachers/districts who are so reluctant or so nervous to identify struggling students."
    - Kelli Sandman-Hurley, Ed.D.  Dyslexia Training Institute
