Topic: Dyslexia, Disability, and Deception

"One of the greatest myths perpetrated by the establishment is dyslexia...There is precisely nothing wrong with the ´dyslexic´ kid except that the teaching failed... [u]nderstand that dyslexia is real in the sense that kids who do not learn to read are obviously confused about what reading is. But the assumption of the label dyslexia is that the kid is at fault -- not that the kid has been the victim of academic child abuse. We have worked with thousands of kids and never seen one who failed to learn to read when the teaching and management details are in place. We´ve worked with several hundred kids whose IQ was below 80 and every one was able to read by the end of first grade."

Re: Dyslexia, Disability, and Deception

Welcome to the twilight zone. The US is said to have 50 million functional illiterates and 1 million dyslexics. Guess who caused all this damage and failure? The children, of course. It’s all their fault. They’ve got bad genes. Bad parents. Bad phonological skills. Bad left brain-right brain cooperation. Bad karma. Bad something.

Re: Dyslexia, Disability, and Deception

An education professor has claimed that dyslexia does not exist because it has no valid scientific basis.

Writing in today's Times Education Supplement, Professor Julian Elliott argues that the term is largely an "emotional construct".

Experts have failed to agree what it is, and say that being diagnosed as dyslexic makes virtually no difference to the treatment the individual requires, he writes.

Re: Dyslexia, Disability, and Deception

A Labour MP has claimed dyslexia is a myth invented by education chiefs to cover up poor teaching.

Backbencher Graham Stringer, MP for Blackley, describes the condition as a "cruel fiction" that should be consigned to the "dustbin of history".

He believes the reason many children cannot read and write properly is that the wrong teaching methods are used.

Re: Dyslexia, Disability, and Deception

A school principal from southern Sweden has infuriated health workers and disabilities rights advocates after claiming in a newspaper article that dyslexia and anorexia are made-up diseases.

“Sometimes it’s a mix of state, regional, and self-appointed agencies. Examples of the latter are associations and councils created for all of the handicaps and diseases invented after the 80s like allergies, Asperger’s, DAMP, ADHD, anorexia, dyslexia, dyscalculia, oral galvanism, anal magnetism… the limits can only be found in one’s imagination,” writes Åkesson.

Graham Stringer MP is right: dyslexia doesn’t exist and never has done

Re: Dyslexia, Disability, and Deception

“As yet, nobody has been able to demonstrate scientifically that there is this subgroup of poor readers that should be termed dyslexic,” he says. “There are all sorts of reasons why people don’t read well but we can’t determine why that is. Dyslexia, as a term, is becoming meaningless.”

No one seems to agree on what defines the condition; one recent analysis of research identified 28 definitions of dyslexia, each slightly different from the next.
