Let’s write my essay on dyslexia!

When I write my essay on dyslexia, I start by describing what dyslexia is. Dyslexia or developmental reading disorder is a reading disability which occurs when the brain does not properly recognize and process particular symbols. This is usually a hereditary disorder. It is a common misconception that dyslexic people write words backwards or see letters moving around when they read. In reality, this happens to very few people who are dyslexic.

When I write my essay, I can talk about the symptoms of dyslexia. A person with dyslexia may have a problem with reading words. He or she also has trouble connecting sounds and difficulty understanding sentences. There is also a slow learning process for a person which is more evident in young children. Some will have problems reading words out loud or reading words in the wrong order. Some will also misspell words and have difficulty with handling time and the concept of time. Those with dyslexia tend to take a longer time to read materials than the average person. It should be noted that dyslexia is not an intellectual disability and it not connected to IQ.

When I write my essay, I can talk about coping with dyslexia. There is no direct cure for dyslexia. However, it does not mean no help can be offered. One can live with the disorder. It is not a disease. With proper guidance and support, a person can cope well with academic demands (especially children) even though he or she has dyslexia. In a school setting, having dyslexia is not a hindrance to learning. Extra effort can be taken for the dyslexic student to learn and cope with the academic demands of the school. Some suggestions include individual tutorials and remedial classes. A positive reinforcement is also highly advised because dyslexic children often have low self-esteem.
