What Is Dyslexia
Dyslexia, also known as a specific learning disability by schools, is an under reported
disability. Dyslexia is an inheritable, neurological, condition that affects your language
acquisition, processing, and decoding abilities. Up to 20% of the population in the US
has a learning disorder and 80% of these people, many of them children, are afflicted
to varying degrees with reading disorders that qualify as dyslexia according to a NIH
(National Institutes of Health) estimate.
Dyslexia is a disability in learning, not in intelligence, and afflicts girls and boys nearly
equally. Children with dyslexia are typically highly creative, intuitive, and are excellent
hands on learners. Dyslexia is a lifelong, incurable, condition. With early detection and
treatment children with dyslexia can still learn and succeed academically.
Does My Child Have Dyslexia
When a child struggles with reading, writing, spelling, and sometimes even speaking,
it is possible that the problem is due to dyslexia. This does not necessarily mean that
a child displaying them has dyslexia. However, if a child continues to display difficulty
over time in the areas listed below, testing for dyslexia should be considered.
I Think My Child Has Dyslexia - What Do I Do
A formal evaluation by trained professionals must be conducted to diagnose dyslexia.
Testing can be conducted by schools and professionals trained in the assessment of
intellectual functioning. The International Dyslexia Association provides resources to
find a trained professional in your area. If you think your child may have dyslexia we
can help. Please contact the Seacoast Learning Center Director for more information
or download our student application packet and apply today.
