My emails to Dr. Reid Lyon (part one)

This is a slight detour on my posts on 'Shut-down' kids.

For the last 7 years I have tried to have discussions with the 'researchers' on dyslexia and on why kids shut-down but I have been unsuccessful and I quit about 2 years ago and went back to doing other things. A friend insisted that I teach his grandson early last years and my interest in teaching dyslexic kids was rekindled. This year I taught two very smart girls and, once again, I want to let the world know about what I have learned.

Hare are the preliminary emails I had sent to Dr. Reid Lyon who was one of the key players in 'The Children of the Code'

Dear Diane,
Thank you for your response. I am glad to have this opportunity to discuss this matter with you and your husband. Please read my messages to the Dr and see if there is anything I say that you may not agree with.

Please do not send me to others until you have decided that what I say is disagreeable. I had written to Dr. Reid about 5 years ago but did not get a response.

Ma'am my name is spelt LUQMAN MICHEL.

Please read the following which is already too lengthy without me giving details.
I prefer to discuss this a little at a time.

I hope to get some response to what I have written. Dr. may ask whatever question he would like to ask on what I have written.
Following is taken from Dr.Reid's message in "The Code".

Note: I have taken away the email address of Diane and the highlight in red is my emphasis now. 

(To be continued.)
