12.3 Tables / Flow charts

The Speech & Language Milestone Chart explains the 6 levels of development a child goes through between the age of 0 - 6.

 

 This is a process of 5 basic cross-over steps:

  • 1. At birth, a baby makes his first sounds, the first basic elements of Speech. After about a month he learns to repeat memorized sounds (patterns) and go back-and-forth like "Ma-Ma" "Ma-Ma"
  • 2. Once a Single sound ("Ma") can be produced and memorized, he learns to make new sounds existing out of different tone levels ("bye") and combine these and he will start to learn it's meaning.
  • 3. These meaningful words can be combined in new patterns that become more nuanced expressions.
  • 4. When he is can handle various patterns and he understands their meaning, he can start to make a conversation by putting words together.
  • 5. After exercising he can become fluent at putting words together and he learn to organize them in a grammatical correct way. Beyond this he can Flow freely.

 When a child has the base of "Speech & Language" at the age of 5-6 he can start to learn to read. This process involves like speech out 5 different cross-over steps as explained in the "Normal image processing / Reading" -topic:

 

  • 1. After a few days/weeks a baby can combine the view-points of both his eyes and create an assembled view (0+1), now he can focus (this is the beginning of reading, like what making a sound is for speech). Once he has this basic view he can start to make connections with other view points and repeat these steps back-and-forth, following curved lines and going in circles,
  • 2. After this self-thought period he will get to learn "the ABC", letters that have a basic sound to it attach like a "T" -> teee
  • 3. The next step is to combine the patterns (ABC) into words and linking them to words he already knows, C-O-W -> gets a meaning: the animal.
  • 4. When he can read (link words to actual subjects), he can understands the relation between Reading and Speech, he can go on from translating words into meanings to combining these meanings into a whole expression.
  • 5. Once all is understood he can read the waves of letters into words without thinking, and he can work on the development of comprehension of the text.

On the table these steps are combined with the First 3 of the Stages that Dr. Jeanne Chall has researched.



I. For a dyslexics with blur the trouble of reading starts at step-1 when he has to go from one Focus point to the other, he doesn't get a good grip on a point when he comes from an other point so this takes a bit longer, this is no problem as when you look at a cow from all directions it is always a cow, same go's for learning the Alphabet it will take a bit longer to focus on "A" or "B" but the child will learn what these letters represent. But when he has to put them together the problem starts and he will get stuck at the "Early Reading" phase.


Alternatively a Db can develop a Volumetric feeling for letters so the image processing combining that happens in V1 is shifted to a the volumetric-area of the brain instead of the visual part.

 

 

 


II. For a dyslexics whith Gap the trouble of reading starts at step 1 when he has to go from one Focus point to the other,

The problem is that they have a narrowed, stiff view, when they want to gaze at the next point they have to boughten their view, causing the Gap to appear, so it is hard to focus on the next point. He will take more steps to "get" the letter, creating a different rhythm. He hasn't got the overview and doesn't fluently see where the next letter is and has a harder time making a connection and he will get stuck at the "Early Reading" phase.




Alternatively a Dg can also develop a Volumetric feeling for letters so the image processing combining that happens in V1 is shifted to a the volumetric-area of the brain instead of the visual part.
