Dyslexia

The National Institutes for Health (NIH) defines dyslexia as a “brain-based type of learning disability that specifically impairs a person’s ability to read.”  According to the Mayo Clinic, dyslexia has been linked to genes that affect language development in the brain, and it often runs in families.  Because the impact of dyslexia is isolated to a person’s ability to read, it does not affect an individual’s cognitive ability, and most people who are dyslexic have what is considered average or above-average intelligence.  While individuals with dyslexia struggle with reading and writing, they frequently excel in other academic areas, including math and science.


Symptoms of Dyslexia

The signs and symptoms of dyslexia can be easy to overlook and frequently go unnoticed until a child begins reading and writing.  However, there are some symptoms that may begin to present themselves around the time a child begins to speak.  Some of the warning signs of dyslexia include:

  • Delayed speech
  • Difficulty learning new words
  • Difficulty following simple instructions
  • Transposing letters and words
  • Difficulty spelling
  • Trouble sounding out words
  • Inability to see what letters and words have in common
  • Difficulty reading or reading below grade level

Because many of these symptoms may at first appear to be typical childhood behavior or developmental milestones that children must work through, dyslexia can be difficult to diagnose.


Diagnosing Dyslexia

Dyslexia is most often diagnosed once a child begins attending school because this is when the signs and symptoms of the condition become most apparent.  However, even then, the condition may go undetected.  Diagnosis is difficult because there is no single test to identify whether or not a child has the disorder.  Dyslexia is most often diagnosed using a combination of observations from parents and teachers as well as a battery of visual, auditory, academic and psychological tests to rule out other possible causes and disorders that may explain the child’s symptoms.


Treating Dyslexia

Children who are dyslexic often struggle in school, which can lead to issues of poor self-esteem, so it is important to identify and treat the condition as soon as possible.  Children who do not get the treatment they need will continue to fall farther behind in school.  Unlike many other disorders, dyslexia is not treated with medication.  Instead, children with dyslexia are usually given extra attention and are taught in different ways that make sense to them.

  • Alternative teaching methods.  Many children with dyslexia benefit from using a variety of senses instead of relying solely on visual cues to learn how to read.  Using multiple senses helps them process the information they are being taught more easily.
  • Specialists.  Most school systems in the United States provide additional resources to children who have learning disabilities.  Reading specialists can teach children with dyslexia different techniques to help them read.
  • Dyslexia Tutors.  Even with the additional resources offered through the school system, children with dyslexia may still need extra attention to keep up with their peers.  A private dyslexia tutor can provide the one on one attention necessary to help children with dyslexia succeed academically.
