What Is Dyslexia?
Dyslexia is a learning disability that can occur in a child because of a few reasons. Sometimes it can be genetic. The child who is diagnosed with Dyslexia can not learn and read words or numbers properly like a normal child. They find difficulty in learning and understanding words and numbers.
There is no cure for Dyslexia but its effects can be decreased by early intervention and assessment.
Dyslexia doesn’t affect an individual’s intelligence. No-one can judge a person’s ability and willingness to read and learn just because he has been diagnosed with Dyslexia.
Sometimes this disability can continue into adulthood. In children who are diagnosed with Dyslexia, the development of speech can be late. They find difficulties in following many instructions.
This website can become a hope for those children and help them to feel normal.
