Does this mean that dyslexics have been faking it?

I have dyslexia to some degree and man this is like dyslexia on steroids. Maybe that's why like ee3 I maybe can read this better than spelled correctly.

Thumbs up Read fast?

I have seen 3 varients of this same thing. In every one without exception, I could read faster than if they were spelled correctly.

My Son & I can't spell as well as we read, but knowing how important the first & last letter is, we practice on them when we read . What happened? We both focus on first & last & so far it seems, we now can read a lot faster than before.

Why? Who knows it saves time & I get more of the point than the way I had been reading.

What scared me was that I am a teacher and I received that emails three times in one week from other teachers...should we quit teaching spelling now?
