Transcript of Dyslexia

& What is dyslexia? Dyslexia is a learning disorder that manifests itself as a difficulty with reading and spelling. The majority of dyslexic children have come to the conclusion that they are stupid!

In any school in any week of the year a dyslexic child experiences a huge amount of failure. With sequencing difficulties, any form of writing or math/s is going to present severe problems, and the dyslexic child cannot fail to notice that almost all of the other children are able to do the work which he or she finds so hard. Why can't he read and spell? He must be dumb, thick, stupid. It's the conclusion that anyone would reach in similar circumstances, and it badly needs changing before any corrective teaching is going to be effective. How does it affect classroom performance
and their social life? http://www.dyslexia-teacher.com/t5.html "...don't you know that it is just a catch-all term for children that can't read"?
NO!!!!

70-80% of people with poor reading skills are likely to be dyslexic. Created By:
