The Reading Cure
Often, dyslexic children seem to lose interest in books around the 3rd grade. One of the reasons this occurs is that by the 3rd or 4th grade these children see fewer picture books and more books with content only. This bores the average dyslexic 3rd or 4th grader. A content only book can often take the fun out of reading for dyslexic children because the pictures bring reading to life for dyslexics. Remember, dyslexic children, teens, and adults are very visual. They love looking at colorful pictures. Think of the phrase, “A picture is worth 1,000 words.” Well, it’s worth 10,000 words to a dyslexic. This is because dyslexics are right brain thinkers. They think in pictures rather then words. Colorful pictures and images often excite dyslexics more than just mere words. This is why dyslexic like me has created a comic classic section so that dyslexic children can read the classics in comic format. Your child will enjoy the colorful pictures and you will be pleased that they will be reading more content while learning the classics. All of the comics below are from classic books.
