Our daughter, Leighanna, 9 years old last May 25th is a gorgeous, bright, cognitive little girl who tries very hard to overcome everything that comes along, and usually does, except for reading and spelling well.
The Private School she attends here in the Philippines has a pretty good standard of education, but executed within “normal boundaries.” My husband, her father, who has a medical background, Leighanna dotes on him, says it has so many signs of “dyslexia,” {word blindness} that the possibility should not be ignored but dealing with, and overcoming it is beyond his range of knowledge, and as far as quoting “dyslexia” to the school, or the medical fraternity around here you might as well be talking in Venusianeese.
Any and all suggestions would be gratefully received and taken seriously.
