What is Dyslexia?

Although in the past few decades there is more awareness regarding this specific learning disability called dyslexia and there are even special laws and legislations that have passed for information to be disabled-friendly especially that is posted online. The Specific term “dyslexia” first came into existence through a “German ophthalmologist, Rudolf Berlin” who use it almost 130 years ago, for his patients who have difficulty in reading material but have no problem with their vision.

There was another term that appeared in medical literature around the end of the 19th century called “word blindness”, it was used for young people who do not have any physical or mental disability but still can’t be able to recognize the words. The term “dyslexia” is a combination of two words “dys” and “lexia” from the Greek language, which means difficulty and language. This research will cover information about dyslexia, its types and dimensions, signs, and symptoms along with how to manage it properly and its diagnosis.

In simple words, the difficulty in reading materials or understanding them is called dyslexia. We cannot explain it regarding lack of education or any kind of physical impairment because the person with dyslexia is normal and intelligent in all other aspects except, he/she cannot be able to understand or interpret material properly. The signs of dyslexia can be detected in young children even before they take admission into school, but the signs become more visible once they are in school, because they need to read and understand material all the time in schools. Some examples include having effective communication skills and spoken language but still encountering difficulty in understanding the written language or reading material.
