Dyslexia in Children

Dyslexia in Children

Categorized as a learning disability, dyslexia can be diagnosed in people of all levels of intelligence. It basically manifests itself in the form of a difficulty with written language, visible more prominently while reading. A neurological difference, it arises from differences in the processing of written and spoken language, by the brain of a person. While the causes of dyslexia have not been deciphered till date, the problem is not entirely incurable. It has nothing to do with the intellectual ability of the affected person and some extra time, attention and patience can go a long way in helping him/her overcome the problem. Let us know more about dyslexia in children.
