Welcome to Camilia’s blog about spelling!

 

camiliaI help children and adults with reading, spelling, and overcoming dyslexia. I specialize in teaching phonics and in helping those who everyone else has given up on them. 

Discoveries: I spent over 15 years intensely dissecting English, discovering exclusive 100 spelling rules, applying the rules in 600 phonics lessons, and making English spelling logical and possible for all ages and all types of learners.

Dyslexic persons can learn to spell logically: The learning style of a dyslexic person is a logical learning style. When logical explanations or spelling rules are provided, dyslexic persons can easily learn to spell and overcome reversing letters. They are not learning disabled; their learning style is simply different. Their brain is wired to memorize only things that make sense and reject things that do not make sense. When researchers see the difference in their brain, they mistakenly label this difference as a learning disability.

Dyslexia Can be Ended or Prevented: I have helped thousands of dyslexic students that learned and proved that dyslexia in spelling and in reversing letters does end after learning to spell, and after slowing down to write words slowly. In addition, they proved that dyslexia could be prevented before the 4th grade. Understanding how we get dyslexia is the key to end it it; simply read this short article to see how dyslexia is given to kids before the 4th grade  How do you get dyslexia?

I invite you to read my posts and leave a comment. Ask questions, and I promise to answer any questions you may ask about phonics, spelling and dyslexia. 

Lee Learn to Read and Spell Logically

In 1999, Lee was in the sixth grade, and according to his school records, he read at a first-grade level (level 1.6) and Lee was told he had dyslexia, ADD, and learning disabilities.

I helped Lee read and spell in less than a week. Please see Lee’s writing before and after the six months Lee Learned to Read in a Week!

What is dyslexia?

What is dyslexia?     What is dyslexia? Dyslexia is an acquired hurrying disorder that is given to children before the 4th grade. Dyslexia is reading, writing, spelling or saying letters or words in reverse. While all types of dyslexia are caused by forced speed at some point or time, dyslexia in spelling and reversing letters is caused by forced speed-reading before learning to spell words. Dyslexia in spelling is an advanced stage of poor spelling.   There are two major characteristics shared by dyslexic persons, which are focusing only on one thing at a time and having to have logical spelling rules before they can memorize the spelling of words. For details about such shared characteristics, see Test for Dyslexia Online Several Types of Dyslexia There is dyslexia in spelling letters in reverse, as in spelling shipmetn instead of shipment. There is dyslexia in writing words in reverse, as in writing tree birds on three. There is dyslexia in reading words in reverse, as in reading my nice is niece. There is dyslexia in speech, as in saying aks for ask. When people are intimidated, pressured or forced to hurry, they may do anything in reverse. Interestingly, each thing people can do in reverse has a name nowadays; writing numbers in reverse is now called dyscalculia. Do you wonder why feeling forced to hurry has become the norm in our current lifestyle? What causes dyslexia in spelling? Spelling letters in reverse is caused by forced speed-reading before learning to spell words. Before the 3rd grade, pupils who are logical learners become poor spellers because the spelling of English words to them is illogical. Having spelling difficulties causes them to fall behind in class. By the 4th grade, they feel forced to speed-read to finish their homework. Forced speed-reading leaves them no time to see the details inside the words they are reading. Their vision travels too fast in both directions. In their haste, they see letters in reverse and then they write letters in reverse, in the same manner that they saw them and read them. They are forced to run before they can crawl or walk.  How do we get dyslexia? Dyslexia in spelling letters in reverse is acquired, but only by logical learners who have spelling difficulties. Dyslexic persons are logical learners who must have logic before they can memorize the spelling of English words. They cannot memorize the spelling of English words, unless they are presented to them with logical explanations as to know when to spell a sound one-way and not the other. Dyslexia in spelling English words is actually an advanced stage of poor spelling; poor spellers misspell words but dyslexic persons misspell words plus write letters in reverse. In fact, when dyslexic persons learn to spell a word and then slow down to write that word, they do not reverse the letters in that word. See How do you get dyslexia? Dyslexia Can be Reversed or Ended Dyslexia in spelling and in writing letters in reverse ends, after learning to spell and after slowing down to write words slowly. For most people, the biggest barrier to ending dyslexia is not being able to understand what it means. Once they understand how dyslexia is given to them, they can easily reverse it.

Reading and Spelling Phonics

Posted by on Jan 26, 2013 in Blog, Phonics, Reading, Spelling | 0 comments

Reading and Spelling Phonics ph is a phonic and f is a plain letter   Reading and Spelling Phonics The spelling of English sounds we call phonics is inconsistent because a single sound can be spelled in many different ways (many different spelling patterns). Most people can read a phonic in a word but cannot always remember which phonic to choose when spell a sound in a word.  For this reason, reading phonics is easier than spelling phonics. According to reliable statistics, 2 out of 3 native-English speakers can read but cannot always spell correctly the words that they read. Can Read but Cannot Spell Most English speakers can READ the numerous spelling patterns of a sound, but cannot always remember which spelling pattern to choose when spelling that sound in words. For instance, they may read “hockey” but spell it “hocky.” The “hockey” example is only one out of thousands that cause enormous spelling difficulties among logical learners who need spelling rules to know when to spell a sound one-way and not the other. Know that languages that use plain letters like the “f” with no phonics like the “ph” have no spelling difficulties and no remedial reading courses. For instances, native-Arabic and native-Italian speakers are usually finished with learning to read and spell words in their languages by the 3rd grade. In addition, no known cases of dyslexia in spelling have been detected among speakers of such languages. Spelling Phonics Logically is Now Possible Traditionally, the spelling of every English word had to be memorized independently, without any regularity or logical spelling rules. Now and after dissecting English and discovering over 100 spelling rules that govern the spelling of phonics in words, one has the choice of learning to spell phonics in words logically. Logical learners of all ages and from multiple backgrounds have been benefiting from the logical spelling rules I have discovered. The 100 spelling rules are applied in 600 phonics lessons and logical learners read the practice lessons aloud to memorize the spelling of hundreds of words at a time. Give back!
