For the last 17 years, I have been fortunate enough to be able to work with students to help them overcome reading difficulties caused by dyslexia. Mabank Independent School District is currently using the Take Flight Program.
TAKE FLIGHT: A comprehensive intervention for students with dyslexia that was developed by Luke Waites Center for Dyslexia and Learning Disorders of Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. Take flight contains the components of effective reading instruction supported by the National Reading Panel research. They are:
Some of the signs associated with dyslexia include:
•Difficulty learning to speak
•Trouble learning letters and their sounds
•Difficulty organizing written and spoken language
•Trouble memorizing number facts
•Difficulty reading quickly enough to comprehend
•Trouble persisting with and comprehending longer reading assignments
•Trouble learning a foreign language
•Difficulty correctly doing math operations
People with dyslexia often have average to superior intelligence. Many are gifted in math, science, fine arts, journalism, and other creative fields. A list of such people would include Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, Winston Churchill and many others who have changed the course of our world. However, their tremendous strengths are offset by noticeable weaknesses.
