There are an estimated 40,000 sports and recreation-related eye injuries each year
and the majority of them happen to children.

​Dyslexia is…

  • The ability to see multi-dimensionally, all at once, or from any one place at a time. The ability to think in pictures and to register those pictures as real. Thus, you mix in creative thinking with reality and change what you see and hear.
  • Running daydreams: A process of always rapidly creating in your mind, so you never hear what others really say, or you forget what they say. Therefore, you can’t hear or see things around you accurately.
  • Disorientation: The imagination starts running when something “triggers” you. You become spacey; you “drift” and make mistakes. It can be seen in your eyes and felt inside. Triggers can be written or spoken words, movement, confusion, sounds, people, exhaustion, sensitivities, emotions, hunger, fear, etc. Thus, dyslexia affects your life and of those around you.
  • A talent to think 3-dimensionally, in pictures like computer graphics: This talent interferes with symbols, print, spoken language, balance, movement, and the sense of time. One needs to learn when it needs to be turned off; each person has to learn when this is most necessary for them.
  • Optical Illusion: You perceive things in a different, unique way. You see changes in the details around you. They shift, they get brighter or duller.
  • Not just in academics: It affects your abilities to integrate what you hear, see, think, and your ability to follow through successfully. It affects your sequential thinking and your ability to stay on task.
  • Inconsistent in subject matters: Though perhaps accomplished in math, dyslexics may not have a clue when it comes to reading, writing and spelling. Or the opposite may be true. Dyslexia can affect learning in all the subjects areas, or a few at a time, this can vary throughout your life. Without correction we have to work 7 times as hard as anyone else, or else just give up.
  • Irritating to others: the person who has dyslexia may make mistakes that look careless
  • Sensitivity: Dyslexics are keenly sensitive to others, and are able to perceive thoughts and feelings; this makes mistakes upsetting. Dyslexics also have a strong sense of justice and are always right!
  • A talent: Excellent in art, music, drama, sports, carpentry, mechanics, and electronics, dyslexics can brainstorm their way out of anything. Dyslexics are creative and bright, giving others the impression that they should try harder!
  • Multi-faceted: Dyslexics have complex lives; they are intense and “high maintenance” people who are bright, entertaining and unique.
  • Correctable: once someone has been trained to do the correction, catch their confusions, and clear up their “stumbles,” dyslexia becomes self-correctable. Dyslexia can then have the experience of being focused.
  • When you learn to focus, you are finally able to realize many facets of your potential and are able to take charge of your life. You experience choices and successes that have eluded you all of your life. You open up to increased self-esteem, the value of which is immeasurable. You learn to understand and accept yourself. You are different, unique, and talented!
  • Hand in hand with other disabilities: Dyslexia can also cause problems in math (dyscalculia), handwriting (dysgraphia), listening (receptive language problem), the processing of verbal instructions or information (central auditory processing problem), and/or a problem with day dreaming and staying on task (Attention Deficit Disorder, or ADD).
  • A collection of symptoms in reading: Dyslexia causes the omission of words; letters in words; or not “seeing” a word; addition of words; transpositions (switching) of letter order; repetitions of words or sentences; reading and rereading, practicing what you’re to read and still making embarrassing mistakes; reading worse under pressure; not remembering what you read; reversals of word order; reversal of letters, reversals of words; stumbling over words; sounding out a word and then not recognizing it in another sentence; confusion over the author’s meaning or purpose; “rewriting” the author’s words; feelings that you’re dumb; total frustration because you can’t understand what you’re reading. You feel that something is wrong with you.
  • Confusion in math (dyscalculia): Dyslexics may be burdened by: adding, subtracting, multiplying, or dividing incorrectly, with seemingly small, “careless” errors; transposing and reversing numbers; ’forgetting” to do something; somehow coming up with other answer; adding when you should be subtracting; suddenly dividing when you should be adding, somehow losing the process. Not “seeing” a problem to be worked on the page and, thus, not answering it can be another complication. Dyslexics often don’t know how they did on a test. They can work the sample problem, but can’t apply the process to a slightly different problem. Everyone thinks the dyslexic could do it if they would “just try”.
  • A spatial, verbal, and thinking disability: Dyslexia is easily unsetting. This can create extra movement, extra anxiety, and tends to speed up the thinking rate which, in turn, can speed up the talking rate immensely. Trying to catch up to the rapid thinking increases stumbling and fumbling for words. It can also cause a misperception of what others say. Dyslexics can’t even begin to explain all of the thoughts and feelings. They always feel that there is something missing, something unidentifiable
  • Dyslexics are often missing the feeling of well- being.
  • An emotional disability: Dyslexia can move you from a calm state of mind into confusion in seconds. It’s hard for others to understand a dyslexic. Confusion tends
    to make a dyslexic moody, overly sensitive, and unable to communicate easily with others. There is no question that it affects your relationships.
  • Variable with its symptoms: Symptoms fluctuate and depend on the tolerance for confusion that moment, that hour, that day. Ordinarily, confusion precedes learning; in a dyslexic, confusion leads to more confusion, which tends to block the learning process.
