From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Dyslexia is a syndrome in which a person’s reading and/or writing ability is significantly lower than that which would be predicted by their general level of intelligence. People are diagnosed as dyslexic when their reading problems can not be explained by lack of intellectual ability, or by inadequate instruction, or by sensory problems such as poor eyesight. Because reading is a complex mental process, dyslexia has many potential causes. From a neurophysiological perspective, dyslexia can be diagnosed by close inspection of the morphology of the brain (usually upon autopsy). Dyslexia is also being associated with phonological difficulties, such as enunciation. Variations
In addition to the typical variety of dyslexia there are also several others:
Dyspraxia– a neurological disorder characterised by a marked difficulty in carrying out routine tasks involving balance, fine-motor control, and kinesthetic coordination. Verbal Dyspraxia- a neurological disorder characterised by marked difficulty in the use of speech sounds, which is the result of an immaturity in the speech production area of the brain. Dysgraphia- a neurological disorder characterised by distorted and incorrect writing. Dyscalculia- a neurological disorder characterised by a problem with learning fundamentals and one or more of the basic numerical skills. Often people with this disorder can understand very complex mathematical concepts and principles but have difficulty processing formulas and even basic addition and subtraction. Autism – Dyslexia is often associated with a range of developmental problems which do not have clear boundaries. At one extreme end of the scale is autism. The whole spectrum of developmental disability is much more commonly reported in boys than girls.
