Dyslexia Help: Dysphonetic (phonetic) VS Dsyeidetic (visual) Dyslexia

Posted on Leave a comment

 

After over twenty years of being in education, I provide tutoring, consulting, and coaching on dyslexia and other neurodevelopmental differences. Over the last 15 years, I’ve observed an increasing amount of behavioral, sensorial, cognitive, physical, mental, and spiritual difficulties and differences along with an increased number of children being medicated; Therefore, I developed a revolutionary program that includes an evaluation that “looks at the whole child.” I work with all stakeholders on constructive engagement when learning based on my student “whole child” observation(s) inspired by Maria Montessori, Benjamin Bloom, Peter Levine, Conrad E. and Cohen B., Dr. J. Puleo & Dr. L. Horowitz, Howard Garner,  Dr. Bradley Nelsen, Hans Berger, Jean Piaget, Grolnick, W. & Kurowski, C. and Erik Erickson. I have also developed a revolutionary training/intervention program for people with unique learning and neuro-differences. This program is based on my own inductive reasoning and a detective sense contributed to my own gift of dyslexia, countless hours of student observations, educational research, and studies along with my perpetual care for children.

With Much Sincerity,

“One highly cited study showed that around 80 percent of children with dyslexia had both phonological and surface dyslexia, while 20 percent had only one of the two.”https://www.understood.org/en/learning-thinking-differences/child-learning-disabilities/dyslexia/different-types-of-dyslexia

“In the 1930’s Dr Samuel Orton in the USA noticed that learners with dyslexia had problems in reading and writing when taught by ‘traditional’ methods. Working on the premise that some cerebral connections, notably those between the visual and auditory areas, could be less strong in these learners, he looked for a system of teaching which would use other associative areas of the brain to link the visual and auditory areas.https://www.dyslexia-and-literacy.international/ONL/EN/Course/S3-2-2.htm

Learning 

Note:

 

VPD- Visual Processing= Sympathetic Lateral Functioning System Dominate  APD- Auditory Processing= Parasympathetic Functioning Systems Dominate 
1. VISUAL DISCRIMINATION ISSUES:

Trouble seeing the difference between similar letters, shapes, or objects. Try a search and find!!

2. VISUAL FIGURE-GROUND DISCRIMINATION ISSUES:

Struggle to distinguish a shape or letter from its background.

3. VISUAL SEQUENCING ISSUES:

Find it difficult to see shapes, letters, or words in the correct order; may skip lines or read the same line over and over.

4. VISUAL-MOTOR PROCESSING ISSUES:

Trouble using what they see to coordinate with the way they move; may struggle to write within lines or bump into objects while walking.

5. LONG- OR SHORT-TERM VISUAL MEMORY ISSUES:

Struggle to remember shapes, symbols, or objects they’ve seen, causing issues with reading and spelling.

6. VISUAL-SPATIAL ISSUES:

Trouble understanding where objects are in space; unsure how close objects are to one another (check out horizontal and verticals spacing in their handwriting).

7. VISUAL CLOSURE ISSUES:

Difficulty identifying an object when only parts of it are showing (check out a,o in their handwriting).

8. LETTER AND SYMBOL REVERSAL ISSUES:

Switch numbers or letters when writing, or may mistake [check out these in their handwriting] “b” for “d” or “w” for “m” (p,q) .

https://www.churchillstl.org/learning-disability-resources/visual-processing-disorder/

1. Defined by difficulty processing the basic sounds of language (phonemes), sounds of letters and groups of letter resulting in very slow and labored reading.

2. Believed to be caused by an impairment in neural processing of auditory information.

3. Also called audio dyslexia or auditory processing disorder.

4. Sounds may be being fused, reversed or jumbled. It is not a hearing impairment (See VPD too).

https://www.dyslexia-reading-well.com/auditory-dyslexia.html

5. Spelling is a feat due to the above.

6. In the medial position (mostly) you’ll see omissions of sound processing hence the students will add, repeat, substitute and even delete all together letters in the middle of the word (check the medial, final, and initial letters in their spelling.

 

*Note: Students can have deficits that are both auditory and visual in nature! Total Functional Dominance. 

2) Spelling Inventory. Read phonetic and sight words (back and forth) to have the student spell onto black T-chart. Check phoneme sounds above to the nonsense word spelled out by the student.  See Appendix Cont. for Student Prompt.

Dysphonetic (phonetic)Dyslexia

Auditory Processing-Words, Phrases, Sentences-writing and/or 10 word spelling sample onto copy paper,  mark position  (words ex. for the word cap below)characteristics and markers,  and make note and percentage.

Why spelling words (see above)?

The middle sounds even though in the middle position is the last to be processed. The last sound even though is the last position is the second to be processed. Since language sound processing is needed for spelling, you will observe them misspelling in mainly in the middle position, then the last position by doing omissions (leading to deletions, additions, substitutions, repetitions)! Orton Gillingham methods are great for helping anyone who has these sound processing issues.

  • Beginning
 Middle  End

 

Omissions:
Deletions- cp
Additions- caop
Substitutions-  cip
Repetitions-  caap
Fusion- She allowed (fused first sounds of two different words)
Include PA- Language/

Listening, Alliteration, Assonance, & Rime (see below). Also, ask about sensitivity to loud noise, muffled sounds when in a crowd for CAPD.

 

 

Dsyeidetic (visual) Dyslexia aka surface dyslexia, visual dyslexia

Visual Processing-Words, Phrases, Sentences- again writing and/or 10 word spelling sample onto copy paper,  mark position  (words ex. for the word cap below)characteristics and markers,  and make note and percentage.

Why spelling words (see above)?

Have you ever seen anyone fix a b/d reversal by sounds, phonics, and auditorily methods? I have not. I have seen visual methods such as drawing a /bed/ work,  noting the hands L/R, and holding up the hands. Mainly, I have seen where a developmental or behavioral optometrist, OT,  or special lenses have helped the most.

 

 

 

Transposals- cpa
Reversals-  c@P, pac
Closures- a, o’s, etc. don’t meet up/ front/back tail
Capitals- caP
Picture Find (confusing- incomplete, differences, Spacing off)
Descr.: blurry, jumping, flying, skipping lines
Dysgraphia- Proprioception
Finger Tapping Speed
Spacing off
Tight/Loose Grip- Dark/Light
Lots of Erasing, Splitting & Drawing of Letters
Organization, Poor Handwriting
Specific Language Impairment

(Se auditory processing can be CPD)

Nouns (Pronouns)/Verbs usage and organizational positioning
Adj./Adv. usage
Overall Lang. Development (#speech sounds-production/r,s,w,etc/words, age)
Endings of Conjugations (endings, -s,-es)
(ask about CAPD/SLP or audiologist- speech, noise levels, sensitivity & filtering,&  DLD)
