Dyslexia at a Glance:

In Learning

Dyslexia is a learning ‘difference’ – classified as a disability in UK. Dyslexia can affect the way people communicate, and is different for everyone. It is not just about reading and writing and it has nothing to do with intelligence. There is no ‘cure’ but lots of practical things can help overcome some of the barriers it presents. 

Identification

It is estimated that 1 in 10 people has dyslexia. Dyslexia exists in all cultures and across the range of abilities and backgrounds. Dyslexia often runs in the family.

Characteristics

It is important to remember that everyone with dyslexia is different and that they will not necessarily experience all of the characteristics mentioned here. Everyone has different strengths, difficulties and strategies that work for them.

What kind of support can you give your child?

  • Take into account the needs of the persons themselves
  • Ask for their suggestions
  • Peer support
  • Use of mind mapping
  • Use of coloured overlays and coloured paper
  • Assistive Technology for reading, writing and recording of information
  • This video blog was inspired by the Dyslexia Scotland PDF Explanation.
