Dyslexia, or developmental reading disorder, is characterised by difficulty in learning to read despite normal or above-average intelligence. This includes difficulty with phonological awareness, processing speed, auditory short-term memory, language skills, verbal comprehension, and/or rapid naming. There is no single sign that can predict if a person has a learning disability. .
It is important to deal with dyslexic children with a lot of patience as these children may lose their interest in school-related activities and become withdrawn and depressed. Problems with self-esteem can also arise, if not given proper emotional and social support.
Since there are different forms of learning disabilities, it is important to establish the exact problem the child is facing. The school psychologist will help diagnose whether the child has a learning disability or not and if yes, then which one, dyslexia, dysgraphia or dyscalculia. You can also consult a doctor for help.
