Dyslexia

The discovery of Dyslexia which is a difficulty in reading and visual centers in the brain
comes from the Greek word meaning "poor with words," "poor reading," or "a disturbance of
the ability to read." Dyslexia can easily be treated with many programs that are out there
today. A study was done at Georgetown University Medical Center in Washington says that
people with dyslexia have a lower level of activity in the brains left inferior parietal.
This area is important but in reading and in processing visual images. They have found
that the right inferior parietal can be taught to compensate for the weakness in the left
side of the brain. But this includes doing intense program of reading training.


Most children are diagnosed after they have started reading. They struggle to hear,
analyze and separate the individual phonemes in words. If two or more of these symptoms
are in the family tree then you should have your child assessed for around the age of 5-5
½ :

· Delayed speech
· Mixing up sounds in multi-syllabic words
·Inability to rhyme at age 4
·Lots of allergies stronger and more severe reactions to childhood illnesses than most other kids.
· Can't master tying shoes
· Confusion over versus right, over versus, before versus, after, and other directionally words and concepts
· Lack of dominant handedness
· Inability to correctly complete phonemic awareness tasks
· Difficulty learning the names of the letters or sounds in the alphabet; difficulty writing the alphabet in order

Although people with Dyslexia have a unique brain structure and "unusual writing" make
reading, writing, and spelling difficult, most people with dyslexia have gifts that are
controlled by the right side of the brain. These kinds of people are also often gifted in
the area of math. Because of their three-dimensional visualization skills it helps them to
see math concepts more quickly and clearly than people that are non-dyslexic. They are
also gifted in:

· Artistic Skill
· Athletic ability
· Musical ability
· 3-D visual spatial skills
· mechanical skill
· vivid imagination
· athletic ability
· math conception skills
· creative, global thinking
· curiosity tenacity
So overall people that have Dyslexia lead very normal lives.
