What is Dyslexia?

Dyslexia is a type of thinking and learning style independent of intellectual abilities. It does not respond to the conventional evidenced based methods of teaching reading.

Dyslexia is a visual learning style that is resistant to phonics based reading.

Current research indicates:

30% of the population strongly uses visual (picture) thinking, 25% think verbally (words) and 45% uses both visual and verbal.

Dyslexics tend to be visual thinkers, however a few will be visual/verbal which means their visual learning style is resistant to phonics based reading strategies.


Symptoms or characteristics of Dyslexia

People with dyslexia display some of the following signs:

  • Confused by letters, numbers, words, sequences, or verbal explanations.
  • Reading or writing shows repetitions, additions, transpositions, omissions, substitutions, and reversals in letters, numbers and/or words.
  • Complains of feeling or seeing non-existent movement while reading, writing, or copying.
  • Seems to have difficulty with vision, yet eye exams don't reveal a problem.
  • Trouble learning Sight Words or Dolce words (see below)
  • Reads and rereads with little comprehension.
  • Spells phonetically and inconsistently.
  • confusion or weakness with letter order within words

Words with pictures are easily understood and remembered by a dyslexic. Words with no pictures are difficult to remember in the early years of reading and this will impact on the child's comprehension as he/she progresses through school.
