Miss Kelli Tests Show Members For Dyslexia

Miss Kelli, a specialist in testing people for Dyslexia, came on The Bobby Bones Show to test Bobby Bones, Amy, Lunchbox and Eddie!

She was a teacher but left when her son was diagnosed with cancer. He started having trouble reading and they couldn’t figure out if it was medical related or a learning disability and when he was 9 years old, he was diagnosed with Dyslexia. Since she had a learning degree, she learned how to properly help and work with him. When he was 14, he started reading and is now about to graduate from U of A!  

Miss Kelli called into the show after she heard Eddie thought he might be Dyslexic and offered to test the members to find out! The first test was a reading evaluation. The National reading level is 7th grade, and this test is from 4th to 12th grade. She started the level at 4th grade and gave them a list of 30 different words for each member to read. She made notes on how their pronunciation was and if they paused before reading.
