TV Programme: ITV’s “Let’s Talk” about Dyslexia

The term dyslexia was coined from the Greek words “dys”, meaning ill or difficult, and “lexis”, meaning word. It is used to refer to persons for whom reading is simply beyond their reach. Spelling and writing, due to their close relationship with reading, are usually included.

We did Audiblox, the first program, to great effect. My son went through college and graduated wih no delay. He used Audiblox for about 9 months, every day when he was 9.
