I would love to support you. I fully support the dyslexic person in all
their efforts. Dyslexia is without any doubt the problematic issue which is
regularly discussed on this site, which due to the limitations of current
technologies is not able to be properly recognised. This is not just your
struggle but also my struggle (to get Virtual Scanning technology
recognised) because using this technology I am able to see the highly
detailed reports of people with various medical conditions which are not
able to be properly identified and treated.
It is a neural condition, an issue of the brain's processing, which affects
the regulation of the levels of components in our physiology and blood, and
hence affects our behaviour i.e. of the learning process, coordination,
balance, memory, etc.

Subject: Re: [DYSLEXIA] BDA statement from Maggie Snowling
Having now read the article, I have still not changed my mind.
Where is the prove that the term dyslexia has been over used?
I still say dyslexia is about more than reading and writing and phonics.
What about time management, organisation, co-ordination, left right
If anything the article has just made me more angry with people acting
irresponsibly when getting their name into the public eye and forgetting
about those that suffer because of what they say and do.
I have clients who are really suffering because of that programme as their
employers, managers and co-workers attitudes have changed for the worse and
they are not so willing to except dyslexia as a reason for some of the
issues these clients have.
What about the little guy that doesn't have a voice?
Put me in the same room with those involved with this programme and see what
Dyslexic and proud of it
