The forward and backward facts on dyslexia.

A child who has trouble learning to read could very likely have dyslexia. In fact, one in five children has has a language-based learning disability, and dyslexia is the most common. Having dyslexia may slow a child down, but with a little extra emotional support, tutoring, and special education programs, he or she can learn and develop in school along with other children.

How can you know if your child has dyslexia, what causes this disability, and what's the most effective treatment? Funny you should askā€¦

Reading, Spelling, and Writing

The condition may or may not be evident at a young age. Early signs of dyslexia include being a late talker, being slow at learning new words, or having difficulty understanding or learning rhyming words.

Dyslexia becomes most obvious when a child begins to learn how to read, spell, and write. Letters, numbers, and words on a page may run together, appear backwards, or look jumbled to a dyslexic person. Those with dyslexia may have trouble processing verbal instructions, remembering the order of instructions, deciphering differences between letters, numbers, and words, understanding jokes and plays on words, doing math problems, and memorizing.

I didn't succeed despite my dyslexia, but because of it. It wasn't my deficit but my advantage. Although there are neurological trade-offs that require that I work creatively and smarter in reading, writing, and speaking, I would never wish to be any other way than my awesome self. I love being me, regardless of the early challenges I had faced. - Scott Sonnon, martial arts world champion and author

An inability to read affects multiple areas of life. Some people have mild forms of dyslexia and may fall under the radar, while others deal with more severe symptoms. In either case, without intervention, students with dyslexia may easily become frustrated with learning, fall behind in school, have a low self-esteem, become depressed and unmotivated, or develop behavior problems to mask their weakness.

Lost in Translation

Dyslexics may likely be as bright and articulate as other people their age but their brain has trouble translating the images it receives from the eyes and ears into language it understands. There's no physical problem with the eyes or ears and no mental retardation. Linked to genes that affect how the brain processes language, dyslexia often runs in families. Though rare, it can be caused by injury to the brain or hormonal development in utero.

The brain in a person with dyslexia may appear normal and healthy, but it takes longer to make simple connections. You may see the letter z on the page but your brain has to go through multiple steps to remember “z” makes the sound “zee.” And that's just one letter. Combining letters into words and words into sentences is even harder.

Early Intervention Key

The sooner a child begins intervention programs for a learning disability like dyslexia, the greater the chance of successful treatment. Dyslexia isn't something a child outgrows and there's no cure. So if the reading difficulties remain undiagnosed and untreated, problems continue throughout life.

Teachers, parents, doctors, and psychologists will likely be involved in both the diagnosis and treatment plan for someone with dyslexia. Through the help of a reading specialist, support from family, and modified teaching methods, those with dyslexia can learn how to read and comprehend.

A love of reading and reading proficiency can start early for every child. Parents should begin reading out loud to their children at a young age. Kids can listen to audio books while playing or riding in the car. Better yet, kids can follow along in a book while listening to the audio. Once children are old enough, time should be set aside each day for reading. Adults who take pleasure in reading set a wonderful example for kids. And increased exposure to books can help those with dyslexia learn to manage their condition from an early age.
