In today’s word, many studies have been done on people who are having trouble reading or learning. There could be many reasons why this person is having a hard time picking up a certain lesson in school or in general. One learning disability that I learned about is called Dyslexia. Dyslexia is a developmental reading disorder; it’s a reading disability that occurs when the brain does not properly recognize and process certain symbols. So imagine you’re reading a menu in a restaurant and can’t understand it properly because the letters or symbols aren’t being registered in your head. This paper is going to help break down the impacts and signs that dyslexia may have on people. Dyslexia is a learning disorder characterized by difficulty reading. It is a specific reading disability that many people may not know they have. Dyslexia is a common learning disability in children. Dyslexia occurs in children with normal vision and intelligence. Sometimes, dyslexia isn’t noticed for years and isn't recognized until adulthood. There's no cure for dyslexia; it’s a lifelong condition caused by traits that were inherited that affect how your brain works. However, most children with dyslexia can succeed in school with tutoring or a specialized education program. Emotional support also plays an important role. Dyslexia is usually found in the earlier stages of children. For example in middle school or before. Some symptoms can be difficult to recognize before a child enters school. But some early signs may show a problem. Once a child reaches school age, a child's teacher may be first to notice a problem. The condition often becomes noticeable as the child begins learning to read. This disorder is characterized by a delay in the age at which a child begins to read. Most children are ready to learn reading by kindergarten or first grade. But children with dyslexia often can't get the basics of reading by that time. Some people realize they have this disorder by the time they are out of the early beginning to read stages. So dyslexia can be found in adults and teens, some signs may include having a problem reading out loud, trouble understanding jokes, difficulty with time management, difficulty remembering, having a problem learning new language, and finally summarizing a story. Even before kindergarten, a kid who has dyslexia usually has trouble with letters and sounds. A teacher might say that the kid is smart, but doesn't seem to be getting the hang of reading. Other times, it's a parent who notices the kid is struggling. The best thing to do is to go to a specialist who can help figure out what's wrong. A specialist in learning disabilities knows about learning problems that kids have and what to do about them. During a visit with a specialist, the child might take some tests done. But the idea isn't to get a good grade; it's to spot problems. Discovering a learning disability is the first step toward getting help that will make it easier for the child to learn. Many kids get frustrated and even brush it off. Most kids with dyslexia can learn to read with the right kind of teaching. They might learn new ways for remembering sounds. For example, "b" and "p" are called brother sounds because they are both "lip poppers." You have to press your lips together to make the sound. Thinking about the way the mouth needs to move to make sounds can help kids read more easily. A learning specialists know many of special activities like this to teach reading to kids who have dyslexia. Children with dyslexia also might use flash cards or tape classroom lessons and homework assignments instead of taking notes about them. They may need tutors and their parents to help them stay caught up. Another way that could help children with this disability is having extra time for test. Computers help also, You can get programs that read books out or even download recorded books to an iPod. These help kids learn the sound of others saying it while
Developmental psychopathology links the study of typical development with the study of disorders. Developmental psychopathology is especially relevant in middle childhood, when children are grouped by age and expected to learn on schedule. Middle childhood is also a time when some disorders can be mitigated if treatment is early and targeted.
Two basic principles of developmental psychopathology are multifinality and equifinality, which lead to caution in diagnosis and treatment. This field requires…
has been diagnosed with a learning disability, they may feel that it takes over their lives. But with the right help it will not affect their ultimate success in life. In this research essay I will be talking about what a learning disorder is, how to detect that a child has a learning disorder, and how it affects children in school and ways to treat them. The four common types of learning disability I will be discussing are Dyslexia, Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, Dysgraphia, and Dyscalculia…

Etiology of Psychological Disorders
Describe the following perspectives on the etiology of psychological disorders:
Description of Perspective
Some believe that biological perspectives are genetic, and have a tendancy to run in the family. Others believe that there are brain abnormalities when it comes to brain structures and neurotransmitters. We might possibly be biologically pre-programmed for certain fears.
