My comment in Linkedin about 1 year ago:
aught disengaged kids successfully. Why not spend the required money to teach these kids instead of wasting it on building prisons and teaching kids in prison. Find the cause and eradicate it rather than trying to find a cure for the symptoms."
My comment on the above post (see part 1) about a week ago:
"..... how to resolve the ambiguity they experience"(Dr. David Boulton)
I had written to Dr.David, Dr.Reid Lyon and Dr.Siegfried Engelmann a few years ago and after the first few email exchanges there was no further response. I have now clearly identified how to determine a shut-down student and have written about what it takes to get them to read. I do hope that Dr.David Boulton will seriously look into how to help these kids. We can reduce the illiteracy rate if we start teaching the proper way.
Dr. David Boulton’s response:
Learning-Activist, Non-Profit Executive Director, Theorist, Technologist, Author, Consultant, PD…

Children of the Code avoided advocating solutions so as not to be dismissed as having an agenda other than learning deeper into the challenge. 3 decades of work have culminated in a solution, an entirely different approach to supporting learning to read: https://youtu.be/lDVNUvocVz4
Good luck all
give you the answer. I know the answer and have written to you and I did not get a response. Dr. David Boulton, what is written in the Children of the Code is what most people already know - about 10 to 20 % of kids all over the world cannot read in the English language. I know why but do you have a ear to listen?
Dr. David Boulton:say you have been through my work you'd know that. I appreciate that you help people. I don't want engage further with you. I am not interested in being a platform for self aggrandizing. I wish you all the best.
ve been through your work and I know why a great majority of the kids classified as dyslexics struggle to read. You are welcome to give your comments on my post today and on future posts. Wish you well.
t what works and what doesn’t …………” I have studied kids who had shut down since 2004 and have come up with why they disengage from learning. I am prepared for any questions grilling me on what I have written. Instead of grilling me, if 'pillars of education' just shut me off, how will we ever learn? Why doesn't this team study what has been independently researched by someone who wants to help kids in the future and change their course of life?
