Dyslexia, in its simplest definition, is a learning disability, which is most evident in your child’s reading skills. The most common symptoms of dyslexia are confusing and transposing letters, and misspelling words. Know also that because reading is a struggle for dyslexics, these individuals often exhibit talent in other areas such as in math or in the arts.
What makes your daughter’s therapy sessions frustrating for her is the fact that most dyslexics also have poor memory skills, which make the disability even more difficult to overcome. There is no known cure for dyslexia, but continuous therapy sessions will definitely make reading less of a challenge for her.
