Dyslexia is a reading disorder due to problems with reading, spelling, writing, or speaking.

People with dyslexia with normal intelligence are normally white, and most children with dyslexia can attend school through tutoring or specialized education programs.

Despite this, the color makes its appearance. In some cases, it is diagnosed as studious and is not recognized until adulthood, but it is not too late to receive help.

Symptoms Before Entering School

It can be hard to recognize the signs of reading in front of a child, but it could be some indication of a problem.

Signs that a young child may be at risk of returning an indicator of dyslexia include:

  • Late talk
  • Learn new words
  • Problems forming words correctly, such as reversing sounds in words or confusing words that sound the same
  • Problems remembering or naming letters, numbers, and colors
  • Difficulty learning nursery rhymes/nursery rhymes

School-Age Symptoms

Once a child goes to school, dyslexia signs and symptoms may become more noticeable, including:

  • Reading at a much lower level than life expectancy
  • Problems understanding what he hears
  • Difficulty finding the right word or forming answers to questions
  • Problems remembering the sequence of things
  • Difficulty seeing (and sometimes hearing) the similarities and differences in letters and words
  • Inability to pronounce an unfamiliar word
  • Difficulty spelling
  • Spending an unusually long time completing tasks that involve reading or writing
  • Avoid activities that require reading

Symptoms in Adolescents & Adults

The signs of dyslexia in teens and adults are similar to those of dyslexia in children. Some of the common signs and symptoms of dyslexia in teens and adults include:

  • Difficulty reading, including reading out loud
  • Reading and writing are slow and demanding
  • Problems with spelling words
  • Avoid activities that require reading
  • Mispronouncing names or words, or problems remembering words
  • Spending an unusually long time completing tasks that involve reading or writing
  • Finding it difficult to summarize stories
  • Facing problems learning a foreign language

  • Difficulty solving math problems

When To See a Doctor?

Although most children are ready to learn to read in kindergarten or first grade, children with Dyslexia often cannot understand the basics of reading at that time.

Talk to your child’s doctor if his reading level is lower than expected for his or her age or if you notice other signs.
