Getting Rid of Dyslexic Confusion

On it's own this is good, but not enough. A dyslexic person may continue to react to text by feeling confused, triggering further distortions. He may switch one distortion off, but this may soon be followed by another.

Eventually, he would lose the ability to switch off the distortions. So, the second arm of the correction process is to stop the triggers. This is done with clay.

The dyslexic person's picture-thinking style explained

A dyslexic person thinks predominantly in pictures, rather than with the sounds of words. Some people don't think with the sounds of words at all; their minds don't experience any of the "chatter" with which many of us are familiar.

When a dyslexic person reads the word "cat" he will respond with a (probably full colour, 3-D, moving) image of a cat.

When he reads the word "the" he may well respond with a blank, he has no picture, so his mind cannot think with this word. Here is a confusion. He may tolerate this one word, but when further non-picture words are confronted, the confusion will become enough to trigger a distortion.
