Predicting Dyslexia — Even Before Children Learn to Read

Predicting Dyslexia — Even Before Children Learn to Read | Sport psychology | Scoop.it
“ New research shows it’s possible to pick up some of the signs of dyslexia in the brain even before kids learn to read. And this earlier identification may start to substantially influence how parents, educators and clinicians tackle the disorder.”

Lou Salza's curator insight, June 24, 2014 3:10 PM

Is it just me--or do others find this sort of journalistic "hook" somewhat deceptive?  We really don't need any more multi colored fMRI pictures beside promises of potentially remarkable new approaches to "tackle" dyslexia.  Better perhaps to invest these funds now being used to run kids through fMRIs and invest instead in programs in schools. Let's "tackle" schools and curriculum that refuse to apply the data we already have paid for to alter teaching approaches to address the needs of dyslexic kids. Just sayin'!--Lou

 

Excerpt:Using cutting-edge MRI technology, the researchers are able to pinpoint a specific neural pathway, a white matter tract in the brain’s left hemisphere that appears to be related to dyslexia: It’s called the arcuate fasciculus.

“It’s an arch-shaped bundle of fibers that connects the frontal language areas of the brain to the areas in the temporal lobe that are important for language,” Elizabeth Norton, a neuroscientist at MIT’s McGovern Institute of Brain Research, explains.

In her lab, Norton shows me brain images from the NIH-funded kindergartner study, called READ (for Researching Early Attributes of Dyslexia).

“We see that in children who in kindergarten already have strong pre-reading scores, their arcuate fasciculus is both bigger and more well organized,” she says. On the other hand: “A child with a score of zero has a very small and not particularly organized arcuate fasciculus.”

She says we’re not quite ready to simply take a picture of your child’s brain and say “Aha, this kid is going to have dyslexia,” but we’re getting closer to that point.

"A prime motivator for Sinclair was a desire to make the world more accepting of his dyslexic daughter and others like her, so that they do not face “some of the challenges and isolation that go with being dyslexic in the working world. I wanted to send a message to her that it’s okay that our brains work differently, that it’s not a negative, and that in some ways it’s actually quite positive,” says Sinclair."

Parenting - The Gift of Empathy

Parenting - The Gift of Empathy | Sport psychology | Scoop.it
Parents often ask me, "How can I best support my child or teen?" My answer, "Be empathic." Listen to what your kid has to say, try to understand his/her feelings, and view situations from his/her perspective. You do not have to share your child's feelings or agree with them. What is important is that you have compassion for your child's feelings, that you show you care. Being empathic does not mean accepting inappropriate behaviors, giving in to unreasonable demands, or not pushing your child to undertake challenges. As Kenneth Barish, PhD, an expert on parenting notes, empathy is not indulgence. You can empathize with your child or teen and still impose limits and expectations that your kid needs to feel secure and to thrive. by Carol Sampson
