Sue,Hello. Thanks for stopping by my site. Interestingly, peolpe who are dyslexic develop compensatory skills ( an expression we use in reading and Special education) to conquer the sound/symbol system created for written language. I’m not surprise you note you’re husband has difficulty comprehending. Why? All is cognitive energy is spent of trying to recognize each word correctly, rather than understanding and enjoying what he’s reading. Learning to decode (sound out letter name sounds into whole words) is remediated quite differently than remediating a lack of reading comprehension. The best way for dyslexic individuals to become better readers is through one-on-one intensive multi-sensory reading instruction, such as the Orton-Gillingham approach.Here’s other important fact about dyslexia: it’s a medical diagnosis, 10 in every 100 children and adults are dyslexia, and most importantly, while dyslexics are discouraged and often possess poor self-esteem about their inability to learn to read the reality is they can learn to read and become good readers!Dyslexic Therapist are available across the country, just google Orten-Gillingham and you’ll can be directed to a therapist in your area.Hope this helps, Carol
