Definition of Dyslexia

Dyslexia is caused by varying reasons that relate to visual or dysgraphia gaps that may be the entire etiology of dyslexia. Albeit, others have auditory issues that cause their dyslexia. Sometimes there is a mix of visual reversals of letters, especially b’s and d’s along with pinching of words or losing one’s place as to which line of a paragraph, and losing sequence encoding of words and portions of them. Most people believe that dyslexia is always caused by visual processing gaps. In part, dyslexia is often misunderstood because it reveals itself, sometimes, when it is far more or exclusively due to auditory matters that occur in the broca, speech, and Wernicke, auditory comprehension, sections of the brain. Further, dyslexia may be derived from parietal parts, touch sensory, of the brain, which may not function sufficiently for kinesthetic learning. Some students may only learn well from learning visually, auditorily or kinesthetically. Other students may need to combine visual, auditory and kinesthetic ways of learning in order to have proper understanding of educational material and other subjects of interest. People who meet the criteria for dyslexia often have other learning issues.

Consequences of Dyslexia:
Feeling like an outsider when others around a person, especially while in school, do not have their own issues with dyslexia. Self esteem is often at risk, which frequently causes low expectations of his or her ability to perform in academics. Bullying can often be a part of any given case of dyslexia; peers tend to pick on people who struggle with it. Unfortunately, there is still work to be done on teaching students to treat their peers with the respect that they would want to be shown themselves.
