What is dyslexia? Most people think that dyslexia is just a severe reading disorder with letter reversals, but there is a little more to it. Dyslexia is a syndrome of many and very symptoms affecting over 40 million American children and adults. The most commonly used definition for dyslexia is a disorder manifested by difficulty learning to read, despite adequate intelligence and social culture opportunity. Meaning most children and adults has difficulty in the basic elementary subjects. (Reading, writing, spelling etc.) A dyslexic will also have a problem with time and direction. Dyslexia is not just a negative disorder. It has its positive effects on a child or adult.
Elementary subjects can be a big problem for a dyslexic child. A dyslexic will reverse letters, words, and numbers causing a lot of trouble in reading, spelling, and math. For example a dyslexic will can reverse b & d, was & saw, and 6 & 9. I know being a dyslexic myself; I had a lot of trouble in math. Iâ€™d always reverse the numbers in the problem. Especially being in high school and now the problems had letters. A reader of a dyslexicâ€™s paper will notice that it is very messy and sometimes very hard to read and understand. We as dyslexics tend to skip words as writing or reading and also tend to read and write words backwards.
Dyslexia will cause problems with time and direction. We get confuse sometimes on our left and right. We will also tend to have a delay on learning how too tall time. In experiments done dyslexics could not tell which of two tones of 1 & 2 seconds length, were longer. A dyslexic also canâ€™t tell when one or two hours have past. Due this a dyslexic will most likely always be late. A normal symptom for dyslexia is that it takes longer time between thought and action than a normal student. Some dyslexic students have a latency of 20 seconds before answering a question. Most dyslexics will not participate in a class discussion and rarely answer questions that are asked to the class.
