Fish in a Tree Audiobook | Audible.com

As someone with severe dyslexia, I think this is a great book. Students, parents, siblings, teachers and everyone should absolutely read this book. However, there is one important error. The parts where the girl talks about the letters moving is NOT dyslexia and it is important to understand that piece of the puzzle. I have no doubt the girl is dyslexic. But she also, probably, has a condition called Irlen Syndrome or Scoptic Sensitivity (a neurologically based visual processing disorder in which certain wave lengths of light over stimulate part of the brain especially in high contrast settings--black text on white paper) and can be very very easily diagnosed and resolved. I was diagnosed with both dyslexia and Irlen syndrome at the age of 27. My mother and brother were also diagnosed with it. In the course of an hour a professional diagnosed the Irlen syndrome and changed my life. I still have dyslexia, but letters don't move around and I don't see rivers on the page or flashing lights and that helps. This isn't a well recognized disorder in the U.S. and your eye doctor probably won't be any help because you can have perfect vision and still have Irlen syndrome. The author is at no fault for being unaware of this condition. There just isn't enough awareness of the disorder in the U.S. I think the author did a wonderful job with this book! I only write this review, and I don't write reviews often, because I do not want any child with Irlen Syndrome, with or without dyslexia, to go through life struggling when that piece of the puzzle can so very easily be resolved and make their lives a bit easier.
