DYSLEXIC WHO,,, STUDENT OR THE TEACHER ????? 

YES I AM SERIOUS ,,,,,


YES I MEAN IT............


Dyslexia is a highly misunderstood condition. Mostly importantly by the teaching fraternity. Delayed comprehension (not lack of it) is also usually termed as Dyslexia.


Actually delayed comprehension or lower metacognitive levels are a direct result of the imparting process or the quality of the imparting.


NOW WHO IS DYSLEXIC????


THE TEACHER OR THE STUDENT?????


See the image carefully, you will know that each one of us is dyslexic in one way or other.Being dyslexic is the most natural trait for a human being.


Then why is the teaching faculty more than eager to declare a studnet dyslexic at the first instance of a lower performance.


If the parents and the students were to evaluate the teachers on dyslexia,


I can assure that atleast fifty percent of the teachers in a school would qualify to be termed as dyslexic.


The most regrettable and unfortunate aspect of this issue is the quarantining of the students physically, mentally, and psychologically. Once the teachers start the process, the fellow students follow and take it to a higher level.


As a growing body of research is showing, the developing brain relies upon the consistent “serve and return” interactions that happen between a young child and a teacher.When these interactions occur regularly, they provide the scaffolding that helps build “key capacities — such as the ability to plan, monitor, and regulate be­havior, and adapt to changing circumstances — that enable children to respond to adversity and to thrive,” The developing brain is buffered by this feedback loop between biology and environment.

But in the absence of these responsive relationships, the brain’s architecture doesn’t develop optimally. The body perceives the absence as a threat and activates a stress response that — when prolonged — leads to physiological changes that affect the brain and overall systems of physical and mental health. The stress becomes toxic, making it more difficult for children to adapt or rebound.

The traumatizising effect of being treated as a dyslexic child , creates a negative resilience towards the teacher and  subject she teaches. This negatively impacts the child's comprehension and metacognitive abilities. This intensely impacts the child's behavior in adulthood and his career prospects.

It is time the teachers are orientated and psyched to treat such students as normal students, because if this is an abnormal trait, teachers should remember that even they carry it.


Dyslexia covers many types of difficulty & everyone has different abilities. Raise awareness! "






EMBATTLED FEELINGS, BOTTLED UP EMOTIONS...........


WHERE DOES THE SOLUTION LIE.....


POINT TO PONDER ISN'T IT






Eagerly waiting for reactions from parents and teachers.

Best wishes
