Frequently Asked Questions

1. Which doctor should I consult for dyslexia?

You should consult a neurologist.

2. What is the prognosis of dyslexia?

Dyslexia is a lifelong condition. However, specialized help can lead to marked improvement in reading and understanding.

3. What can be done to prevent dyslexia?

One cannot prevent dyslexia. Dyslexia runs in families and therefore the affected families should make every effort to recognize existing problems early. Early intervention provides more favorable outcome.

4. How should parents deal with a dyslexic child?

The parents of children diagnosed with Dyslexia can support their children in every possible way. They can help them so that the children may grow up to have a career of their own and become independent. Here are some guidelines for the parents-

Support your dyslexic child as early as possible. Work together with the teacher and counselor to understand the child’s problem and the role you can play in the child’s life.

Ensure that your child gets the special treatment required for his/her special abilities. The child may be different but not unique. Help him/her to participate in normal class work and school activities. Do not let the child feel that he/she is different.

Tell the child that his/her disabilities are not his/her fault and that he/she can do he/she wants, only some desires may take longer time to be fulfilled.

Praise the child wherever you can, and yet make sure that the siblings do not feel jealous at the special treatment. Help the child to bond with the family.

Teach the child to organize his/her own room, table, work and time.

Encourage the child to develop hobbies and be like all other children.

consider this: if a (q)appears as a (p) and a (d) appears as a (b) qp db / bd pq when looked upon in a mirror. then the visual condition is neither Dyslexia nor Dysgraphia but rather the term strephosymbolia(Twisted Symbols) should be made use of . the term was coined by Dr. S.D. Orton to explain why people view text as if in a mirror & why they write in mirrored text (Backwards)from right to left , they must write in this text format in order to precieve text as if in standard format from left to right. No known medical cure to date, the gene DCDC2 linked to C6 & C15 cause strephosymbolia. paschar

This article is the problem with dyslexia. We are not ill or in need of treatment We have #D vision and can see so much more than most people. Learning to discipline that power is a rather different story, and being forced to interact with the 2D world, i.e. reading, takes special skills. But, we are great readers, often lovers of books, yet even better writers- precisely because we engage with language using all our senses. We read, but also 'see' the words, imagine the situation and from there our creativity really takes off. We read better out loud or when hearing someone read, and even envision the words on the page when we hear, while at the same time imagining the scene described and the possibilities in that space. Maps are also 2D representations that pose us problem, but once we have a visual image to anchor the 2D map, we can 'read' it better than any one AND retain the images in our memories, returning to places we've visited just once, etc. We know space, and are often in creative fields, but especially where we move through space and time, using the maxim number of our senses, which takes advantage of the 3D vision.

I have fallen for a dyslexic girl - she is so organised and sweet but I get confused by her seeming lack of emotional feedback into how our relationship is going. She doesnt let me kiss her on the lips and when I touch her it is with great anxiety. I ask her about us and she says shes happy as it is. I dont know if I can continue without more comittment from her. She says that it is her dyslexia which is messing things up.. Can this be true. Can anyone shed any light on why she is like this?

Sounds more like she is blaming dyslexia for something else going on. Dyslexia does not directly have an effect on emotion.
