DYSLEXIA

Characterized by difficulty recognizing letters, learning letter sounds, and identifying rhyming words, dyslexia in children is often identified when a child reaches kindergarten. Poor fine motor skills, trouble learning the alphabet, numbers, days of the week and learning to talk later than most children are early signs of dyslexia in kids. Even though dyslexia is a lifelong learning disability, approaches to help overcome challenges for dyslexia can improve reading, spelling and writing skills and can allow children to function better in an academic setting.
