In the wake of pandemic associated disruptions to everyday life and the educational setting, more parents than ever (and some adults, too) are concerned about reading problems.
There can be many reasons for being a struggling reader, one of which is dyslexia.
This is certainly not an exhaustive list, but a few of the most common symptoms of dyslexia include:
· Struggling to sound out words;
· Slow, effortful, or choppy reading;
· Read and re-reading information (sometimes many times) to understand it;
· Trouble pronouncing multi-syllable words; and
· Poor spelling.
The great news is that there are very good, scientifically based strategies to help individuals with dyslexia improve their reading and spelling skills.
Differentiating learning disorder from learning delay is critical. If dyslexia is not the cause of reading and spelling problems, it is important to know that, too, so that intervention is appropriate for the underlying problem.
