Issues With Thinking and Memory
Communication Problems; Dyslexia
Dyslexia comes from the Latin word “dys” which means difficult and “lexia” which means language. It is not a thinking problem, but a reading disability that carries over to writing, speaking and listening. It is a special mode of thought and a natural reaction to confusion.
There are three categories of dyslexia: visual, auditory and a combination of the two.
Some Dyslexia Characteristics:
Delay in learning to talk
Inadequate spoken language
Difficulty learning and remembering printed words
Reversal of some letters (b,d,p,q)
Change in the order of letters in a word
Reversal of numbers
Prolonged delay in establishing right/left handedness
Confusion about directions (right/left)
Difficulty recalling a desired word when speaking or writing
Cramped or illegible handwritin
Dyslexics perceive more and formulate mental concepts faster than other people. They excel at arts, architecture, engineering, strategy and invention. They perceive imagination as reality. That being said, the major concern with a person being dyslexic is restoring self-esteem. Dyslexics may have lived with a lot of failure and therefore need a boost in their mental well-being to work with their diagnosis.
