About Dyslexia

  1. Imagine reading when printed text looks like made-up, mysterious gibberish: going over it is slow, unpleasurable and exhausting.
  2. Then imagine that very few of your peers seem to have any trouble deriving meaning from this black mass! Wouldn’t you feel troubled?
  3. Well this is the reality for as many as 1 out of 8 people in the world: the world of the dyslexic!
  4. Dyslexia is common but poorly understood. At Kids Dailies we promote techniques reconciling these learners with reading.

What is Dyslexia?

Dyslexia is a reading disorder that makes it difficult to read fluently, despite intelligence levels, because it affects how the brain interprets written text, either visually or phonetically. The brain might have trouble recognising characters or words, or it might have trouble linking speech sounds (like phonics) to letters. This leads to a problem relating those words and sounds to images or ideas and what is already known.

A person with dyslexia may have difficulty storing information in memory and not recognise or remember what they have read, no matter how many times they see the same words or passage.
