I found that some of the children really have this problem. before i discover this info, I really try hard to teach them.Now, since have alternative way to improve the study, I will try to recommand the parents to know more about it.

      I have a niece who live in Penang, she is seven years old. Just started her primary school. She struggles and having difficulty coping at school with spelling, writing and reading skills. She has a fleeting attention span. Never been assess or diagnostic to dyslexia. Look forward to your reply.

  9. Hi,

    My name is Tarquin and I suffer one of the most severe forms of dyslexia. I was absolutely shocked but not surprised to read the story about that young boy in the Malay Mail on the 3rd of July. I myself had bad experiences like that with some of my teachers while I was in government primary school. A lot of experts said I would never amount to anything but now, thanks to a lot of hard work and effort on my part as well as my mother’s I am trilingual and successfully obtained a college diploma and am now going to further my studies to obtain my degree. I hope my story will motivate all Malaysian dyslexic children.
    Regards,
    Tarquin

    • Hi Tarquin!

      I’m glad to know there is a way to help the dyslexia child. You give me a hope to my son. Do you mind sharing your stories with me. I would like to know what type of motivation that made you success. What school had you studied during your secondary / primary school?

      My son is a Chinese educated child. He is 9 years old. His memory is very poor. He is not concentrated in his study. He never border what is going on around him, example : he never ask question that he see / watch from TV.

She has a fleeting attention span. Never been assess or diagnostic to dyslexia, but she seems fits to most of the dyslexia’s description.

      I’m glad to know there is a way to help the dyslexia child. As in Cecelis’s comment – You have give a “HOPE” to all those devastating family. I really appreciate if you could share your stories, the special education therapy process that able to help and lead a child to overcome those learning deficiencies. Perhaps this will build a child’s self-esteem, so she will be able to improve her academic performance and motivated to continue learning before she lost interest in school completely. Look forward to your reply.

      Regards,
      Jacqueline
