    Hello everybody,

    Has anyone heard abt dyslexia or Learning Disability. Now a days its become so common that 2 out of 10 kids are dyslexic. But the sad thing is most of us in India are still not aware of dyslexia in kids especially school going kids. Even the teachers are not aware of it. Since the disability is not visible none of them want to accept it.
    Is anybody familiar with it pl let me know
    i just want to know the schools which admit dyslexic kids

    Regards

    Mother of a dyslexic kid

    hi ramya,

    That is good news yaar. i know a very reputed school asked the parents to put the kid in special school as the kid was not writing fast and talking normally......the doctors pronounced the kid normal...and she was brought in for a mri by the desperate parents....imagine a 3.5yrs kid how much she is going to write/talk...

    Hi Shanti , Ramya

    Thank u very much. we stay in perambur. can u pl give me the details of Jawahar Vidyalaya.
    i have already changed 3 schools. now she is in 6th std. again if i have to change her school i shd have the clear picture of the school, so that my dys daughter will not have any probs with the new environment and teachers.
    . as shanti told me abt alphatoomega i had taken my daug to MDA, Alphato Omega for assessments. she really has dysgraphia a problem in writing she is orally thorough in all her subjects especially in maths she is good. she is good in music 2 months back she won 3rd place in music competition. now the school where she is studying the teachers always label her as fit for nothing, dull , slow learner, etc., the princi of this school has told me that she would detain her in the same class this year . with all these her self esteem has gone so low she hates her school, friends, teachers. she likes her music teacher very much. i am so friendly to her, give her unconditional love. i tell her that studies is only a period in her life and that not to worry whether she is detained or not. i am totally confused. pl let me know what to do if she is detained this year? can i put her in another school or give her home schooling. pl help me
    regards
    padma

    Hi Shanti,

    Yesterday as soon as i posted to u , i spoke to sankalp. They have fixed an appt for both of us me and my daughter on 10th oct'07 i e tomorrow I think sankalp shd be the last place for her assessment. This quarterly exams she has failed in all the subjects. so the class teacher is really angry on her makes her kneel down outside her classroom, her classmates teased her, with all these she is so reluctant to go to school. It is like a war to fight with my near and dear ones and the people around us, becos nobody understands her probs they all tell that i am lazy to teach her it seems. Now everything i have left it to God. It is he who has created her into this world, he ll definitely open several doors for her if he has closed one.

    thank u verymuch
    padma
