About Dyslexia

Dyslexia is a disorder that makes it difficult to read and write. People with dyslexia have trouble reading words correctly and may have troubleSpellings, and they may have trouble understanding what they read. It is more common in men than in women.

Most people with dyslexia are not aware that they have it. Dyslexia is usually diagnosed in school-aged children. However, it can also be diagnosed in adults.

There is no cure for dyslexia, but there are ways to help people with dyslexia improve their reading and writing skills. One of the most effective ways to help people with dyslexia is to use a method of teaching called Orton-Gillingham.

Orton-Gillingham is a method of teaching that is specifically designed for people with dyslexia. It is based on the way the brain processes information, and it is an intensive, individualized approach that uses a lot of repetition and practice. It is often combined with other methods, such as using special computer software or reading aloud to help people with dyslexia improve their reading and writing skills.

Most people with dyslexia have trouble with some of the following:

  • Knowing the names and sounds of letters
  • Being able to break words down into their individual sounds
  • Putting sounds together to make words
  • Recognizing words by sight
  • Remembering words
  • Saying words correctly

Dyslexia can vary in severity. Some people with dyslexia may only have mild difficulty, while others may have more severe difficulties that impact their ability to read.

There is no single cause of dyslexia, but it is believed to be caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors.

There is no cure for dyslexia, but it is a lifelong condition that can be managed with proper intervention and support.
