WHAT IS DYSLEXIA?
‘Dyslexia’ is a specific learning difficulty that affects how people interact with words and numbers. For this reason, it can make studying difficult. Dyslexia can inhibit reading comprehension, and make people have to work extremely hard to understand what they’re reading. It can also affect a student’s writing.
Dyslexics will usually have to work a lot harder to put sentences together than non-dyslexics. Despite this, dyslexia is not categorised as a disability because it has no relationship with intelligence.
This difficulty with reading and writing stems from the fact that dyslexia interferes with the ability to ‘decode’ words and sentences. This means that you may struggle to identify the relationship between the letters used to spell a word and the sounds that they represent.
Also, it may prove a challenge for you to ‘break words down’ and get to grips with why some words are formed and spelled the way they are. It may be difficult for people with dyslexia to become aware of word structure, and learn about word elements such as prefixes or suffixes.
However, this is not a comprehensive defintion of dyslexia – it can have many other effects. Also, dyslexics may not experience all the symptoms listed above.
