As a homeschool mom, I am keen to my children's milestones. It brought me great joy when my son first read his first word, and was ecstatic when he read his first book. With two younger kids who are toddlers, I also often wonder if they would have the same development milestones as their Kuya. Would they read at a young age as well? Would they be able to decode words effortlessly? What if they are different? Would I think that they have developmental delays? How about dyslexia?
I think all parents have the same thoughts at one point in their lives - thinking how would their kids fair in academics and in life. Hence, we parents search online and read studies, check with other parents if what our kids are manifesting is normal or if we should go ahead see a specialist.
This June, a dyslexia awareness and intervention summit will happen in UP Diliman. And I am very much eager to learn more - not only for my kids but to educate others as well. Kids should not be labeled bobo. They are all unique individuals with different learning styles and abilities.
No parent would ever want to see his child struggle in school much more in the area of reading—the very core foundation to learning every subject there is in school. This is far worse for the child. The fear of being labelled and teased as stupid, dumb and slow is something he has to face and live with every single day. It could even be aggravated by his teacher’s perception of his condition: lazy, not trying hard enough, unfocused, and absent-minded. The fear even becomes bigger when the school strongly implies that the child is simply a poor student.
There’s got to be a way out. What could be the real reasons behind his difficulty in reading? What can be done to help a child who struggles in reading?
Happening this June 9, 2018 at the National Institute of Science and Mathematics Education Development (NISMED), UP Diliman from 9am to 3pm, the Dispelling Myths: Your child is NOT bobo. A Dyslexia Awareness and Intervention Summit is designed to help parents, teachers, school administrator and counselors to understand the condition that is Dyslexia and the need for it to be identified as early as possible as it can hinder a person’s learning and has negative, long-term social consequences, not only for the individual but also for the society.
ReadRight, Inc., the developer of the Instant Reader™ Program is the pioneer and the only research-based system that can make any non-reader and non-English speaker read and speak English the fastest and most effective way. Instant Reader™, with its academically-rich headquarters inside the UP Los Baňos campus, has proven for almost fifteen years now that any average non-reader child can be taught to read in just 20 days or even less through a revolutionary and unique program that enhances student reading abilities and love for learning without initially teaching the classical English alphabet.
Having been directly involved in various researches and programs concerning the teaching and learning process of children and adults, the team behind Instant Reader™ is consistently and actively trying to respond and do its part in uplifting the growing global delusions concerning the real state and premise of reading and literacy.
Currently, Instant Reader™ is now delving into the concerns of struggling readers who are already trapped inside the walls of their classrooms, silently craving and crying for help — the Dyslexics. Statistics reveal that 20% of the population is affected but never diagnosed. And the good news, Instant Reader™ can now give them hope by helping unlock the keys that would allow them to finally own the skill to READ thru a timely forum that aims to update participants with the latest on handling struggling readers/reading difficulties
The resource speaker is the founder and developer of Instant Reader™ Ms. Veronica Quintana-Arioder. Ms. Arioder finished her Diploma course in Dyslexia (with Distinction Award) at Blackford Centre for dyslexia in United Kingdom and would be sharing her expertise on the said area, imparting up-to-date information on language literacy learning difficulties which affects several of our students inside the class.
We hope you could join us on this special event. This gathering of the minds has a purpose and we’re capitalizing on it and see how together we could help achieve an illiterate-free Philippines, one child at a time.
We look forward to seeing you at the conference.
