Researchers have found that parents and teachers usually speak too quickly for young children to understand. Adults speak at a rate of about 160 words per minute, but children can only comprehend 124 words per minute. Interestingly, Mr. Rogers spoke at a rate of 124 words per minute. Square and rectangle-shaped classrooms filled with desks and chalkboards exacerbate the problem because hard surfaces tend to reverberate and distort sound. This is a concern for children with dyslexia who often rely on verbal instructions when they have difficulty reading the board.

While talking with the children I tutor and with other children and teens with dyslexia, it has become shockingly clear that almost all children with dyslexia are teased and bullied at some point.  What is more shocking to me is the number of children who feel they deserve it or believe that it is normal to be bullied and teased.
