The Major Causes of Dyslexia in Children! Dyslexia is a learning disability that affects children in various ways: lost of hearing, the ability to speak, and the difficult of reading and writing. This is the most common learning disorder in children and persists throughout life. There are a number of different theories about the causes of dyslexia, which everyone agrees that it is a genetic condition that changes how the brain deals with information. (Kraft 2010). Dyslexia is passed on through families; therefore how it affects your reading and writing is known as the phonological process impairment theory. (Kraft 2010). People with dyslexia find this process very difficult than others, because of some areas in the brain functions in a different ways that others without this condition. Symptoms of dyslexia may include expressive language problems or disabilities when reading aloud for example people with dyslexia may reverse words or parts of words. A dyslexic child may read the word as if it were ‘bad’ as if it were ‘dad’. Word order and sounds may also be confused by dyslexics and words are often omitted or slurred over. Speaking, listing, pronouncing words, following directions/ instructions are various symptoms of dyslexia.

Winning over Dyslexia
It’s easy to say that being the youngest child could be the most difficult but also the most beneficial, with three siblings before me, my parents had learned enough along the way to make sure I ended up practically perfect. That left me with big shoes to fill. Throughout our childhood, the idea of having a college education was greatly stressed upon after my oldest sister fell off the short end of the stick.

Their ears are always listening and their mouths are always repeating, thus, in a sense, they are little teachers.
In this speech I will tell you three of the many lessons I have learned from my son’s first learn from your mistakes, second take the time exploring and finally never give up no matter how…

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans have shown that…

Growing, developing and learning are the facts of life for all children. Each day children are faced with many new concepts and various challenges. Can you imagine how it feels for a child to face not only new challenges life has, but to face these challenges while living with a learning disability? These challenges are met not just when they begin school either. Students suffer from learning disabilities from the moment they begin learning, not when they start school. Learning disabilities are real…
