For those with kids who are dyslexic, I have a ?
So my daughter was recently tested for dysgraphia and dyslexia. She tested not having dysgraphia, and not dyslexia, but she consistantly gets B D C and P (and the lower case counter parts) confused (in both reading and writing). There are times she knows she says the wrong letters, and immediately corrects herself, and other times she continues on not realizing she said the wrong word. They're having her still do 6 OT appointments with them, but even the therapist said it was most likely not going to help, but they had to do at least that before they can refer her to a speech pathologist.
I guess my question is, what exactly is dyslexia? From what I looked up and what I was explained to by the therpaist, it can be a number of different things for different people, including mixing up letters...does that mean all letters?? I never thought she had it severely if she did, but enough to make reading complicated for her, not so enjoyable, and making comprehension near impossible since she's not reading the correct words.
I just don't want to be wasting time going to appointments whith people who are doubtful they can help when I can just go to her primary doctor and get a referal to elsewhere if we need to.
