Dyslexia Awareness Month: Prognosis often is good if the dyslexia is diagnosed early.

 Dyslexia?Dyslexia is a brain-based type of learning disability that specifically impairs a person's ability to read. As with other learning disabilities, dyslexia is a lifelong challenge that people are born with. This language processing disorder can hinder reading, writing, spelling and sometimes even speaking.

Dyslexia is not a sign of poor intelligence or laziness. It is also not the result of impaired vision. Children and adults with dyslexia simply have a neurological disorder that causes their brains to process and interpret information differently. The human brain is resilient, but there is no question that early intervention and treatment bring about more positive change at a faster pace than an intervention provided to an older child. The sooner a diagnosis is made, the quicker your child can get help, and the more likely you are to prevent secondary blows to her/his self-esteem.

Of course, no one wants to be an “alarmist” and put her child through an evaluation for trivial or transient bumps along the road to reading. However, If your preschool child struggles with language, particularly with rhymes and pronouncing words, and especially if there is a family history of reading problems, you should not keep your worries to yourself.  You need to seek help.

Trained professionals can identify dyslexia using a formal evaluation.

  • This looks at a person's ability to understand and use spoken and written language
  • It looks at areas of strength and weakness in the skills that are needed for reading. 
  • It also takes into account many other factors. These include family history, intellect, educational background, and social environment. 

Adults with unidentified dyslexia often work in jobs below their intellectual capacity.But with help from a tutor, teacher, or other trained professional, almost all people with dyslexia can become good readers and writers. 

You can use the following strategies to help to make progress with dyslexia.

  • Expose your child to early oral reading, writing, drawing, and practice to encourage development of print knowledge, basic letter formation, recognition skills and linguistic awareness (the relationship between sound and meaning).
  • Have your child practice reading different kinds of texts. This includes books, magazines, ads and comics.
  • Include multi-sensory, structured language instruction. Practice using sight, sound and touch when introducing new ideas.
  • Seek modifications in the classroom. This might include extra time to complete assignments, help with note taking, oral testing and other means of assessment.
  • Use books on tape and assistive technology. Examples are screen readers and voice recognition computer software.
  • Get help with the emotional issues that arise from struggling to overcome academic difficulties.

Anyone who is suspected to have dyslexia should have a comprehensive evaluation, including hearing, vision, and intelligence testing. The test should include all areas of learning and learning processes, not just reading. A trained reading specialist, school psychologist, private child neuropsychologist, or educational specialist may do the evaluation.
