Also known as 'reading disorder' or 'reading disability', dyslexia is characterized by difficulties with specific language skills, primarily reading. Dyslexia is a common condition that affects the way our brain processes written and spoken language. A child may suffer from dyslexia irrespective of his/her normal intelligence and eagerness to learn.
Although dyslexia is basically associated with reading troubles, it can also affect writing, spelling out words, understanding, and even speaking. Such difficulties are often noticed at school for the first time. Dyslexia is believed to be caused by genetic and environmental factors, and often occurs in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).Dyslexia does not need to be a permanent condition. It can be diagnosed through various memory, spelling, vision, and reading skills related tests. The symptoms of dyslexia can be managed by adjusting teaching methods according to the patient's requirements.
