Articles on Dyslexia or Learning Disabilities

Dyslexia, according to most experts, is a reading disability resulting from a defect in the ability to process graphic symbols.  It is not a disease, but a lifelong disability also known as developmental reading disorder (DRD), it is caused by a defect of higher cortical (brain) processing of symbols.  Dyslexia is one of the most common learning disabilities, showing up as difficulty with language.  Children with dyslexia can have trouble understanding words, sentences or paragraphs and they can also have trouble with oral or written language.  The cause of dyslexia is unknown but somehow it runs in families.  It affects both sexes, boys and girls.  It also affects children equally across socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds.

 

When parents become aware that their child is not performing adequately in school, they often wonder if a "learning disability" is the reason.  Almost unheard of as a technical phrase earlier in this century, learning disabilities are frequently identified today as the cause of poor school performance; estimates of the number of children affected vary from five to as much as thirty percent of the school-age population.
