That more and more children are diagnosed with dyslexia or syscalculie is because they are poorly taught, three professors in the AD.

Dyslexiehoogleraar Anna Bosman (Radboud University nijmegen in Nijmegen, says in the AD that little to do with the children is practiced. Also, she says, to doubt or insoluble dyslexia even exists.

“Children need to spell correctly in their head. For example, that a g-sound for a ” t ” is almost always a ‘ch’ and not ‘g’.”

Bosman thinks that it is also for people with dyscalculia helps to practice a lot. She had fifty students six weeks of intensive training and according to her, the level of the students, on average, one and a half year in advance.


Also, two other professors who are authorities in the field of education and dyslexia support the theory of Bosman, reports the AD. “The practice is now that children with dyslexia don’t have to read and to spell, while they understand more of practice”. says professor Ben Maassen.

The industry organisation for primary education, the PO-Council, says in the newspaper that the statement that dyslexia in part by poor education goes too far, but that voice is going to be about the findings of the professors.
