Dyslexia - Lies and more Lies

I am copying articles from the internet which are just blatant lies about dyslexia. These lies are perpetrated by businessmen  who only want to make money at the expense of parents of dyslexic children.

I just read this article in the internet found here:
http://worldvillage.com/dyslexia-adult-assessment-test-verify-if-you-are-dyslexic

"After adult dyslexia is already acknowledged, dyslexia adult assessment test is the starting point in aiding them to look for the proper medication and handle their ailments.
Adults who suppose they have learning incapability have to search for accurate assessment through the help of qualified professionals trained to conduct adult dyslexia diagnostic test. From the assessment, you should have the appropriate diagnosis and recommendation of treatment options."

The above article wants us to believe that dyslexia can be treated with medication. Continue reading for more articles.


Dyslexia is a neurological condition that prevents the signals that are received from the eyes to be clearly interpreted by the brain. As a result, dyslexics (people with dyslexia) see things differently. Dyslexics require special training to be able to interpret what they see in the same ways as non-dyslexics would.

Dyslexics learn differently. Their eyes see objects the same way but their brains appear to interpret the signals from the eyes differently than those of non-dyslexics. It’s not an insurmountable problem, many famous and successful people have been dyslexic. But to reach their full potential they must be taught differently, in accordance with their special needs.

What Exactly Is Dyslexia?

Dyslexia has been little understood or noted for most of recorded history. Almost all that we have learned about dyslexia has occurred in the last twenty-five years.
Dyslexics learn differently. Their eyes see things the same way but their brains apparently interpret the signals from the eyes differently than those of non-dyslexics. It’s O.K., many famous and successful people have been dyslexic. But to reach their full potential they must be taught differently, according to their individual needs.
For roughly the last 15 years, as part of a program to help in overcoming dyslexia, school-age kids have all been screened for signs of dyslexia in children. Those identified as “probables” went through a full-blown test for dyslexia . Those dyslexics thus identified were subsequently taught according to the way they needed to be taught.
Before about 15 years ago, dyslexics were lumped in with the rest of the students and had to take their chances. Most were treated badly by the educational system, called lazy, slow learners, underachievers. They were made to feel ashamed of and embarrassed by their differences and learned to conceal them.
Millions of adult dyslexics today have never taken a dyslexia test. They still struggle with learning and reading difficulties that could be easily overcome if they were only known. A half-hour dyslexia test could make enormous improvements in their self-esteem and abilities.
There are a large number of different types of dyslexia to deal with. There is no standard definition, no real, workable way to sort them out into types and put them into nice, neat categories. Each one is different and needs to be evaluated and taught accordingly.
A dyslexia test could be a life-changing experience for an adult dyslexic. The test would provide the basis for a diagnosis and lead to the dyslexic person finally receiving the training he or she needs to effectively overcome the limitations that dyslexia would otherwise impose. It could open up a whole new world of opportunity and personal growth.

Some questions  that arises in my mind are - How do these guys get away with such blatant lies?
How is it that different writers seem to write exactly the same things using exactly the same words?

There are many more such articles but the few above are enough to let you know that not all you read or hear may be true.
