"How can reading to my child help with development?

 

Studies have shown that in most cases, the highest level high school and college students were read to as young children. This is due to the fact that reading aloud helps children develop language and vocabulary before they start school."

The brain is experience dependent. That means, a child must be exposed to language to be able to make the brain connections for using language. The brain develops most language skills from birth to the age of three. When children are talked to frequently during these early years, the result is a better vocabulary and a higher level of language and reading ability overall.

Drs Fernette and Brock Eide at DyslexicAdvantage.com's curator insight, December 26, 2012 6:35 PM

Actor Patrick Dempsey of Grey's Anatomy is in the news today because he's considering buying the embattled coffee chain, Tully's. The move could save 500 jobs.

Dempsey has talked a great deal about his dyslexia.


Until he was 12 years old, Dempsey was placed in a class for slow and retarded children only to discover he had dyslexia.


"I think [dyslexia has] made me who I am today," he revealed to Barbara Walters. "It’s given me a perspective of — you have to keep working. I have never give up."


Many dyslexics are highly successful actors and actresses because of their ability to empathize and get into the heads of the characters they portray. Reading scripts is difficult for many dyslexic actors; many have a friend or partner read the script aloud to them so that they can easily commit the lines to memory.


Dyslexics also also highly successful in business. Using powers of dynamic reasoning, they can be very successful predicting business trends and finding opportunities that allow them to succeed in careers like venture capital or acquisitions.

Love it. Kinda. Dempsey is six years younger than I am. That school (yes, we went to the same school) had already discovered how wrong diagnoses and related educational assumptions could be. I was diagnosed with MR until quite suddenly I was finally included in group testing and, well, if I got the top score, then did that make my entire class MR?? I had moved by the time Dempsey began school, and so had both the K and Grade 1 teachers that I had. Go figure :)
