What is Dyslexia?
Dyslexia is one of the most misunderstood learning styles in today’s educational landscape. Although most people associate Dyslexia with letter reversals and reading difficulties, Dyslexia encompasses a much larger umbrella of learning difficulties.
At one time, Dyslexia was defined as deficiency in brain function – a disability. We now know, however, that Dyslexia is not a result of a genetic flaw – or brain, eye, or ear malfunction – it is a difference in thinking and learning style that can cause confusion when dealing with symbols.
In fact, some of our culture's most talented people are Dyslexic - as is true for many of the pioneers in technology, physics, and art.
Today, there is real relief for the struggle, frustration, and self-esteem-crushing symptoms of Dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, and the many other variations that accompany the same thinking style, including (but not limited to):
- ADD or ADHD
- Reading disability
- Language-based learning disability
- Dyspraxia (verbal, balance & co-ordination)
- Dyscalculia (math)
- Dysgraphia (hand writing)
- Auditory processing disorder
- Visual processing disorder
- Phonemic Awareness Disability
- Central Processing Disability
If you or your child have any of the above mentioned diagnoses - or simply experience fatigue, frustration, or difficulty when dealing with the written word - please read on!
