The term dyslexia covers a range of symptoms and learning difficulties related to the written word. As such, no single cause for dyslexia has been pinpointed. Possible hypotheses suggest a genetic predisposition, an abnormality in the corpus callosum, a faulty neurological path or a rapid-processing sensory deficit. Income level, sex, race or IQ have dyslexia. Dyslexic people are visual thinkers, so it’s hard for them to understand letters, numbers, symbols or written words, which leads to problems with reading, writing, math and attention focus.
The dyslexic child has average or above average intelligence – in no way is he “dumb”, “stupid” or “lazy” – labels that have been attached to him over the years. He genuinely has a difficulty in basic skills, and is not just playing up. Along with dyslexia, he may also have an Attention Deficit Disorder, This makes it difficult for him to attend to what is being taught in school, and thus there are gaps in his knowledge.
How Does Reading Happen?
To understand dyslexia, it helps to understand reading. Reading is a real workout for your brain. You need to do the following steps — and all at once:
- Understand the way speech sounds make up words.
- Focus on printed marks (letters and words).
- Connect speech sounds to letters.
- Blend letter sounds smoothly into words.
- Control eye movements across the page.
- Build images and ideas.
- Compare new ideas with what is already known.
- Store the ideas in memory.
DYSLEXIA SYMPTOMS IN DETAIL
A discrepancy between the pupil’s ability and their actual achievement: If you notice that a child who appears to be average or bright when they are talking to you is struggling to read, spell or cope with math/s, this may be the strongest indicator that they may be dyslexic. It is very common for dyslexic children to be quite able, especially in the areas of creativity (art, drama, drawing, etc) and physical co-ordination (physical education, swimming, sports, model-making, etc.).
A family history of learning difficulties:
Dyslexia is most often inherited through the genes. It can also be caused by early ear infections. In both cases it is harder for a young child to distinguish the difference between similar sounding words. The numbers of boys and girls who are dyslexic are roughly the same.
Difficulties with spelling: Spelling is the activity which causes most difficulty for dyslexic children. Noticing spelling errors in short, simple words is the way in which most dyslexic children first come our attention. Examples of words which cause particular difficulty are: any, many, island, said, they, because, enough, and friend.
Other words will sometimes be spelt in the way that you would expect them to be spelt if our spelling system were rational, for example does/dus, please/ pleeze, knock /nock, search /serch, journey/jerney, etc.
Dyslexic children also experience difficulties with ‘jumbled spellings’. These are spelling attempts in which all the correct letters are present, but are written in the wrong order. Examples include dose/does, freind/friend, siad/said, bule/blue, becuase/because, and wores/worse. ‘Jumbled spellings’ show that the child is experiencing difficulty with visual memory.
Confusion over left and right: A fairly quick way to establish this type of confusion is to ask a child to point to your left foot with his or her right hand. If you try similar instructions – in a non-threatening environment – you will soon be able to see if this causes difficulties or not. You may also notice difficulties with east and west, or in following directions like ‘Go to the end of the road and turn left, then right, etc’.
Writing letters or numbers backwards: You will have noticed some children who mix up ‘b’ and ‘d’, or even ‘p’ and the number 9. These letters are the same in their mirror image, and cause regular confusion for a dyslexic person. Some pupils make a point of always writing the letter ‘b’ as au upper-case or capital ‘B’, as they find this much easier to remember in terms of the direction it faces.
Difficulties with maths and calculations: One feature of dyslexia is difficulties with sequencing – getting things in the right order. Maths depends on sequences of numbers – 2. 4. 6. 8. Etc. whilst many people are aware that dyslexic children and students have problems with reading and spelling, they do not know that maths can also be a real challenge. This is mentioned quite often in Dot’s Diary.
Difficulties organizing themselves: For dyslexic children and students, who may have genuine difficulties with planning and thinking ahead to when a book or pen might be needed next,
Difficulty following 2- or 3-step instructions: ‘Go to Mrs. Anu and ask her if Mughil is in school today. Oh, yes, and ask if I can borrow his dictionary’ – such an instruction is just too much! It involves both sequencing and memory skills, and you would be very surprised to see a dyslexic child return with the dictionary and information about Mughil! Dyslexic children love to take messages as much as any other child, but it has to be a less complicated instruction, e.g. ‘Ask Mrs. Anu if I can borrow her Pencil’.
