Vom britischen Parlament akzeptierte Legasthenie-Definition

British parlamentIn der Öffentlichkeit tauchen immer wieder entwürdigende Bemerkungen über Legasthenie auf und auch einige Fachleute stellen ganz offiziell die Frage, ob man nicht ohne den angeblich stigmatisierenden Begriff auskommen kann, da dieser nun doch im Laufe der Zeit überwunden sei und durch „nicht–richtig-lesen-und-schreiben-können“ ersetzt werden könnte.

Eating seafood twice weekly will make you healthy and wise

World dyslexis food
NEW YORK – Eating seafood twice a week is good for you, Americans have been told.
New US guidelines recommend that people, especially children and pregnant and nursing women, eat seafood that often.
The guidelines summarise scientific findings presented at a conference in Washington reiterating that seafood helps people to live longer and healthier, cutting the risk for heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s, stroke, diabetes and inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis.
The conference was sponsored by the Governments of the US, Norway, Canada and Iceland, aided by the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation.
Nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids, iodine, iron and choline, present in fish such as wild and farmed salmon, shrimp and catfish, are important in brain development and may lessen the effects of dyslexia, autism, hyperactivity and attention-deficit disorder, researchers have found, and some studies have linked those nutrients with increased intelligence in infants and children.
William E.M. Lands, a retired professor of biochemistry at the University of Michigan and the University of Illinois says, “not eating seafood is more harmful than eating it”.

Bekannte Personen, die angeblich Legastheniker sind oder waren

Hier eine Liste von bekannten Personen, die angeblich Legastheniker waren oder sind. Legasthenie ist unabhängig von der Intelligenz. Legasthene Menschen können, so wie man sieht, alles erreichen. Die Schwierigkeiten in der Schule haben diese Menschen für das Leben gestärkt und und nicht gebrochen.

An dieser Stelle sei nochmals erwähnt, dass Legasthenie meist nur in der Schule ein Problem ist:

„Ein legasthener Mensch, bei guter oder durchschnittlicher Intelligenz, nimmt seine Umwelt differenziert anders wahr, seine Aufmerksamkeit lässt, wenn er auf Buchstaben oder Zahlen trifft, nach, da er sie durch seine differenzierten Teilleistungen anders empfindet als nicht legasthene Menschen. Dadurch ergeben sich Schwierigkeiten beim Erlernen des Lesens, Schreibens und Rechnens.“

Dr. Astrid Kopp-Duller 1995

„Legasthene und dyskalkule Menschen haben eine besondere Informationsverarbeitung und dadurch bedingt eine besondere Lernfähigkeit, welche an die pädagogisch-didaktische Interventionsebene hohe Anforderungen stellt.“

Dr. Astrid Kopp-Duller 2010

University of Denver: Discovery may cut risk for dyslexia

LegasthenieAs is the case with many toddlers, Michael Thieme’s early spoken language was quirky. He called his older brother William “Illiam,” for example. “He couldn’t get his W’s out,” his mother, Annette Thieme, said. Unlike most, Michael had speech problems that persisted into kindergarten, putting him at risk for the reading difficulty known as dyslexia. Michael’s parents didn’t stop at speech therapy. They also enrolled both sons in a five-year study at the University of Denver to uncover why early speech and language problems so often lead to dyslexia. The study, which just ended, showed a genetic link between early speech problems and later dyslexia. Both problems showed up in the same genetic regions, said DU psychologist Bruce Pennington.
