Kids shutting down and kids being not fluent in reading are not synonymous. The roughly 20% who are classified as dyslexic are the kids I refer to as shut down kids. The dyslexia advocates simply classify them as dyslexic for their own benefit. From my research, I believe the number of kids who are dyslexic is less than one (1) % of the population.
Kids predisposed to shutting down, disengage from learning to read when they are confused. I have published YouTube videos on the few reasons that I have discovered as the main causes of kids disengaging from learning to read.
I hope you will share this post with all your contacts so that many parents of so-called dyslexic kids may benefit from the videos in this post.
The first 5 videos uploaded under Shut Down Kids are testimonials from parents of kids I have taught.
The 5 videos listed below are videos on why kids shut down from learning to read.
Producing the above videos has taken me a lot of time and effort and I hope you will please share it with your contacts so that we may together reduce the number of children who shut down and thereby reduce illiteracy.
