Kudos to The Southport CoLab and Florida Center for Reading Research for this fantastic infographic tackling common myths about dyslexia and vision. Spoiler Alert—-there’s no evidence that visual problems cause dyslexia, no evidence that treatment for convergence improves decoding or comprehension, and no evidence that visual interventions remediate dyslexia or learning disabilities.
There is a theory about how people read words — one that’s deeply embedded in teaching practices and curriculum materials widely used in elementary school classrooms. Although the idea has been disproved by cognitive scientists, it continues to be included in teacher preparation programs, promoted in professional development sessions, and marketed by publishers.
We invite you to watch the video presentation which discusses how reading taught in schools does not work and provides the solution.
