What is Dyslexia?
Dyslexia is a disorder that is characterized by a difficulty processing words. Reading problems are one symptom of dyslexia. "Dys" means bad or difficult and "lexia" means word. The problem was first described in 1896 by Dr. W. Pringle Morgan in England. He wrote of a "bright and intelligent boy quick at games and in no way inferior to others of his age. His great difficulty has been - and is now - his inability to learn to read." Dyslexia can occur in several members of a family. This suggests that there is a genetic component to the disorder. Dyslexia also varies in degree of severity, thus affecting some people much more than others.
Frustrating Phonemes
It is now known that the brains of dyslexics are "wired" differently than normal brains, and thus process language less efficiently. In particular, dyslexics have trouble with the units of language called phonemes. Phonemes are defined as the smallest units of sound used for language. For example, the spoken word "cat" is made up of three phonemes: kuh, aah, tuh. There are 44 phonemes in the English language. For most people, the process of breaking words into phonemes occurs automatically, without conscious thought. Just as we break down phonemes without thinking about it, we also merge them in our speech automatically: "cat" is one syllable, but made up of three distinct sounds. Between the ages of 4 to 6, most children are aware that phonemes make up words.
Trouble with Phonemes
Because dyslexics cannot decode words, they have trouble accessing the information they have stored pertaining to that word. They often confuse like-sounding words, such as "volcano" and "tornado." When shown a picture of a volcano, for example, a dyslexic might call it a "tornado," yet when asked to define what it does will correctly answer that it can erupt and spew hot lava. In other words, the dyslexic knows what the object is, but he or she cannot access the correct word for it.

Dyslexic people are visual, multi-dimensional thinkers. We are intuitive and highly creative, and excel at hands-on learning. Because we think in pictures, it is sometimes hard for us to understand letters, numbers, symbols, and written words. We can learn to read, write and study efficiently when we use methods geared to our unique learning style.

Dyslexia Information
Information about how to indentify possible dyslexia in a pupil: The criteria most commonly used in assessment is the disparity (difference) between a pupil's intelligence and their actual achievement. If a pupil you teach appears to speak and listen normally, yet they are unable to read and spell, then there may be more to check out. Some of the well-known symptoms of dyslexia are:
  • confusion over the direction letters face (b/d, p/9, p/q); difficulties with left and right; difficulties with keeping organized; difficulties with spelling difficulties with directions (e.g. east and west); missing out words when reading.

There are three proposed cognitive subtypes of dyslexia: auditory, visual and attentional. Although dyslexia is not an intellectual disability, it is considered both a learning disability and a reading disability Dyslexia and IQ are not interrelated, since reading and cognition develop independently in individuals who have dyslexia.

The Michigan Dyslexia Institute, Inc. (MDI) is a nonprofit organization serving children and adults with dyslexia. We envision a new world for children and adults with dyslexia: a world in which they feel good about themselves and look forward to the future with hope and confidence; a world in which they receive the kind of reading instruction they need, in a nurturing environment; a world in which they are understood and encouraged to develop their potential; and a world in which they can participate fully in the workplace and in their communities. MDI is committed to bringing about this new world.
Estimates of the number of persons with dyslexia in the United States range from under two percent to over 20 percent of the population. Many people with dyslexia also have co-existing conditions such as ADHD. While much research has been done, thousands of articles have been written about dyslexia, and successful teaching strategies have been in use for over 60 years, ignorance continues to be the number one enemy of those with dyslexia.
In response, MDI has developed a testing program to identify children and adults with dyslexia and has provided reading instruction and teacher training to help people with dyslexia. MDI has presented hundreds of public awareness programs throughout Michigan on what dyslexia is and what can be done about it.

Symptoms of Dyslexia
Summary of Warning Signs
: No two people with dyslexia are exactly alike because dyslexia ranges from mild to moderate to severe to profound. Some people with dyslexia also have AD/HD. Therefore, someone with dyslexia may not have every single symptom listed below. But they will have many of them. Professional testers look for a "constellation" or cluster of symptoms in the following areas. If someone struggles with spelling, is a slow reader who has a difficult time sounding out unknown words, and has difficulty getting their great thoughts down on paper in acceptable form, AND that person has 3 or more of these classic warning signs, it is worth getting that person tested for dyslexia.

What is Dyslexia?
Dyslexia is a brain-based type of learning disability that specifically impairs a person's ability to read. These individuals typically read at levels significantly lower than expected despite having normal intelligence. Although the disorder varies from person to person, common characteristics among people with dyslexia are difficulty with spelling, phonological processing (the manipulation of sounds), and/or rapid visual-verbal responding. In adults, dyslexia usually occurs after a brain injury or in the context of dementia. It can also be inherited in some families, and recent studies have identified a number of genes that may predispose an individual to developing dyslexia.

Vision, Learning and Dyslexia
A joint organizational policy statement of the American Academy of Optometry and the American Optometric Association Many children and adults continue to struggle with learning in the classroom and the workplace. Advances in information technology, its expanding necessity, and its accessibility are placing greater demands on people for efficient learning and information processing. Learning is accomplished through complex and interrelated processes, one of which is vision. Determining the relationships between vision and learning involves more than evaluating eye health and visual acuity (clarity of sight). Problems in identifying and treating people with learning-related vision problems arise when such a limited definition of vision is employed. This policy statement addresses these issues, which are important to individuals who have learning-related vision problems (such as dyslexia), their families, their teachers, the educational system and society.

Dyslexia Explained
What is Dyslexia?
There are many definitions of dyslexia. A very simple one would be that dyslexia is a specific learning difficulty which makes it hard for some people to learn to read, write and spell correctly. The recent Report of the Task Force on Dyslexia (2001) suggests the following more scientific definition: Dyslexia is manifested in a continuum of specific learning difficulties related to the acquisition of basic skills in reading, spelling and/or writing, such difficulties being unexplained in relation to an individual's other abilities and educational experiences. Dyslexia can be described at the neurological, cognitive and behavioural levels. It is typically characterised by inefficient information processing, including difficulties in phonological processing, working memory, rapid naming and automaticity of basic skills. Difficulties in organisation, sequencing and motor skills may also be present. (p.31) The report goes on to say that the learning difficulties arising from dyslexia:
  • occur across the lifespan,and may manifest themselves in different ways at different ages;

    New research
    There's new evidence that dyslexia is caused by a problem with processing sounds in the brain. Dyslexia sufferers get confused when trying to link rapid-fire consonants like "b" and "d" to specific letters, say scientists at the University of California, San Francisco. In a recent study, the researchers recorded brain-wave responses of adults to a series of two beeps. The dyslexia sufferers showed distinct responses to both tones but only when there was a half-second pause between them. As the gap shortened, delayed response to the first sound obscured the second. The good readers could consistently tell the two apart. Other researchers have found hints of the problem in infants. Psychologists Dennis and Victoria Molfese at Southern Illinois University played a series of taped syllables, like "dee" and "bee," for newborns in the hospital and then recorded their brain-wave responses.

    1. Introduction.
    People with dyslexia can have enormous difficulties in making sense of reading, writing and spelling. Nowadays there is much that can be done. Dyslexia is a recognised condition and, if identified early, people can generally be helped to find ways to cope with their problems and acquire the skills we all need to reach our potential. This site aims to raise awareness about dyslexia. It discusses possible causes of the condition. It provides practical advice to enable people to recognise dyslexia and suggests ways to deal with problems before school, at school and later in life. It also includes a comprehensive resource section with details of the many organisations which offer help, as well as lists of further reading and websites.
