I want to say this was already greenlit with almost that exact same headline... Hm.

Of course they could also just quit being stupid.

I think Comic Sans is more effective.
 
2012-06-07 03:26:22 PM  
But don't you still need a space (make that two) between the words?

But more difficult for the rest of us. Seems to me you're probably just not hitting them right.

But if you're not dyslexic, does it have the reverse effect? Because I read "dyslexi dicks".

I'm curious what this says about what the disorder actually is.

I just always turned my books upside down.

Come'on - everyone knows dyslexia is a made up thing to make parents feel good about their underachieving children. News flash, by definition, ONE HALF of children are going to read at a below average level for their age. That's a fact. 50% of parents in any given class are going to have kids that are below average.

People want to believe that their child is amazing and great; and if they aren't - they MUST HAVE A DISEASE.

Look at the symptoms of dyslexia....

http://www.dyslexia.com/library/symptoms.htm
Does your seven year old child have trouble sustaining attention; seems "hyper" or 'daydreamer'?
DYSLEXIC!

Does your six year old child have poor memory for sequences, facts and information that has not been experienced?
DYSLEXIC!

You can apply this to ANY CHILD. Any NORMAL, HEALTHY child who isn't excelling academically can get a doctor prescribed 'disease' and their parents can feel good. 'Jimmy is now gets SPECIAL help from the school and takes SPECIAL pills to help him focus and gets to take his tests after class with his teacher. He's OVERCOMING his DISEASE'

Is there a term for reading and writing in mirror script? One of my kids holds books up to mirrors and naturally writes all letters backwards, and fills the page from right to left. He's little and the teachers say he will probably outgrow it, but I think it's kind of neat.

I can still do that. I used to be able to do it with both hands but I guess I grew out of that.

I learned everything I know about dyslexia from an episode of Home Improvement in the mid 90s during TGIF when I was under the age of 12. I think the fact that I just made a true statement is a much more alarming problem for people with dyslexia. If you want people to better understand dyslexia maybe try some awareness campaigns.
 
2012-06-07 03:51:56 PM  
Correction: An earlier version of this post misstated researcher Andrea Facoetti's last name as Faocetti.

I can't be the only one who laughed a little at this.

If life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

If life gives you melons, you might be dyslexic.

There was an old faculty myth in the engineering department that I studied in. Apparently one of the students asked for an assignment due date to be changed so he could attend a Frank Zappa concert. The professor refused so the student wrote his entire paper in mirror script in a spiral from the middle of the page outward. The myth states that he scored a perfect test after the professor graded the paper by standing in front of a mirror and rotating the paper. So the kid might have a bright future of being an entitled little shiat.

As someone with Dyslexia all I have to say about that headline is IT DOES NOT!
