Sarasota Dyslexia Attorney

Student

Dyslexia is a learning disability (LD) characterized by problems getting from the words on the page to the sounds of the spoken language. Children with dyslexia struggle to learn letters and their sounds, spelling and number facts. And when they finally start reading, they have trouble reading quickly enough to comprehend facts.

They are left feeing inadequate because they can't seem to master a fundamental life skill - reading - that their classmates master with relative ease. So to avoid looking dumb or careless in school they develop all kinds of coping mechanism to cover up their reading and language deficiencies.

What is often called dyslexia is really difficulty in a number of skills. These difficulties together add up to the blanket term dyslexia. But they are always a little different for different people. That's why it's best to figure out what the exact problems are. Thankfully these problems are typically not that hard to fix. It just takes a little knowledge.
