However, it could potentially arise as the result of a stroke, traumatic brain injury, genetic disorder, or syndrome. ASHA states that it is important for one to “note that while CAS may be referred to as ‘developmental apraxia,’ it is not a disorder that children simply ‘outgrow’” (“Causes and Numbers,” 2011). With most disorders related to speech development, the child learns everything in the same order as others, just slightly slower than their peers. If a child is experiencing CAS, on the other hand, they do not learn sounds in the usual patterns and cannot improve without therapy or treatment. Though there is no cure for CAS, much progress can be made with “appropriate, intensive intervention” (“Causes and Numbers,” 2011).
Children have problems with spelling as well because they don’t know what letters to put with the sounds of the words. Some ... ... middle of paper ... ...exics on the other hand have left ear dominants which make it harder to read and understand information. Left ear dominants send the information to the right side of the brain which is not the language center so the information has to travel thought the right side into the left side which delays the information. Some people with dyslexia have to do a program that will help them read, learn , and speak better, but though the program they will become right ear dominant. (Sollier, Me) Now you know more about dyslexia and for some of you know what it is.
Dyslexia Aimee Peters University of Idaho Abstract Dyslexia is a learning disability affecting peoples pronunciation, reading, and writing. There are three different types of dyslexia; acquired, developmental, and primary. Not all forms of dyslexia are genetic, but the majority of most people with dyslexia inherited it. Dyslexia Dyslexia is a common learning disability affecting around 5 to 10 percent of all children. It is a complex learning disability- where most individuals believe it’s when an individual reads words backward.
Experts agree that dyslexia is a learning disability that affects language processing and that it does not occur because of low intelligence, lack of motivation, poor instruction, vision, or hearing problems, cultural disadvantages, or other extrinsic. Dyslexia is neurobiological in origin (Altieri J. L, 2008). Identifying children with dyslexia is often very difficult in the early stages before the third grade. Often books children read in the first grade contain repetitive words. Much of the reading students do is supported by memory and illustrations, not decoding.
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common psychiatric disorder in children and adolescents. As implied in the abbreviation, students who are diagnosed with ADHD often encounter learning difficulties due to a lack of concentration and a tendency to be impulsive, which eventually result in poor academic achievement. Although a prescription for ADHD students is available to alleviate the symptoms, it is often not reliable because medicinal effects vary among individuals. As a result, many experts in education tried to incorporate electronic devices to address the issues that ADHD students have. The potential of electronic devices to facilitate students in learning has long been noted by the experts.
What is dyslexia? Medical News Today (MNT) defines dyslexia as “Dyslexia is a specific reading disability due to a defect in the brain's processing of graphic symbols. It is a learning disability that alters the way the brain processes written material. It is typically characterized by difficulties in word recognition, spelling and decoding.” Having said that, it is also a very treatable disability, in the sense that with the proper tools and educational experts a person can overcome the day-to-day problems caused by dyslexia. However, the road to doing so is far from easy, and fraught with psychological and emotional turmoil.
My child has dyslexia, both reading and spelling. The International Dyslexia Association defines dyslexia as a “language-based learning disability.” Dyslexia is the most commonly diagnosed learning disability. This is a common condition that affects the way the brain processes written and spoken language. It’s primarily associated with trouble reading but it can also affect writing, spelling, or even speaking. This learning disability doesn’t prevent my child from understanding complex ideas.
Some parents have difficulty seeing an early sign of dyslexia in their children’s learning, and unfortunately because dyslexia requires a different learning style this lead for room for parents to make assumptions that are often errors. The fact that some parent’s think their children are not smart or don’t want to try and learn is a wrong assumption. The way the brain of a child with dyslexia proses information is different, it makes it difficult
Some experts believe that the condition may be hereditary. Others suggest that it may be caused by differences in the structure of a person's brain and the way that brain functions (Dyslexia). The main sign of dyslexia is reading and writing letters in the wrong order. Some other signs are problems in organizing language (both written and spoken),memorizing, spelling, reading, writing, learning sounds and symbol as well and also difficulties in solving math problems (Ruth). Children with dyslexia have a normal or above-average intelligence but dyslexia can affect their learning, which may cause them to fall behind.
Many people with dyslexia have bad handwriting and have a tendency to read letters backwards. Those who have a high or even normal IQ, but have a reading level lower than it is supposed to be, may have dyslexia. They might need to have a better form of being taught. (http://www.cdipage.com) A child should first be tested with a comprehensive neurodevelop–mental exam before assuming that he/she has dyslexia or any other learning disability. According to the web page where this information was learned from, reading problems are mainly caused by ineffective reading instruction, auditory perception difficulties, vision perception difficulties, and language processing difficulties.
