Dyslexia Explained: What is Dyslexia?
Dyslexia is a language-based learning disability. It refers to a cluster of symptoms, which result in people having difficulties with specific language skills, particularly reading. Dyslexia can come in mild, moderate or severe forms. It can make it very difficult for a child to succeed academically in the typical educational environment. Dyslexics not only experience problems with reading, they might even experience difficulties in other areas of learning like spelling, writing or maths.
Dyslexia is not a disease or a medical issue and as such there is no cure. Exact causes are still not completely clear. Brain imagery studies show differences in the way the brain of a dyslexic person develops, functions and processes information. Dyslexia is not due to either lack of intelligence, or desire to learn.
With appropriate teaching methods, dyslexics can learn successfully. There is treatment which can correct the confusion. See Dyslexia Treatment Options.
There is no single pattern of difficulty that affects all dyslexic people. A dyslexic person might:
• See some letters as backwards or upside down.
• See text appearing to jump around on a page.
• Not be able to tell the difference between letters that look similar in shape such as…o…e…c.
• Not be able to tell the difference between letters with similar shape but different orientation, such as…b…p…d…q.
• See letters all jumbled up and out of order.
• See letters and words all bunched together.
• See letters of some words completely backwards, such as the word “was” looking like “saw”.
The letters and words might look OK to the non-dyslexic, but to the dyslexic they are extremely confusing. So much so that they may get a severe headache or feel sick to their stomach every time they try to read. A dyslexic might be able to read the words but not be able to make sense of, or remember, what they read. So they find themselves coming back to read the same passage over and over again. It is important to understand when a dyslexic person sees letters or words reversed or mixed up, there may not be anything wrong with their eyes. The problem is in the way the mind interprets what the eyes see.
