Developmental reading disorder, also called dyslexia, is a reading disability that occurs when the brain does not properly recognize and process certain symbols.

Developmental reading disorder, also called dyslexia, is a reading disability that occurs when the brain does not properly recognize and process certain symbols.

Symptoms
Difficulty determining the meaning (idea content) of a simple sentence
Difficulty learning to recognize written words
Difficulty rhyming

Treatment
Every person with DRD requires a different strategy. An individual education plan should be created for each child with the condition.

The following may be recommended:

Extra learning assistance, called remedial instruction
Private, individual tutoring
Special day classes

Possible Complications
Problems in school, including behavior problems
Loss of self-esteem
Reading problems that persist into adulthood, which may affect job performance, particularly if the problem was not addressed early in life

Prevention
Learning disorders, such as DRD, tend to run in families. Affected families should make every effort to recognize existing problems early.

Early intervention will provide the best possible outcome.

With dyslexia, the brain mixes up letters and words, making it difficult to read, write, and spell. Though the cause of dyslexia is unknown, it can be passed down within families. Doctors can diagnose dyslexia by testing and talking with your child. They may look for symptoms such as confusing small words or letters and their sounds. Treatments include setting up specialized learning plans called IEPs for your child to give him or her more focused help in learning.

What Causes Dyslexia?
Dyslexia tends to run in families, and researchers have identified the genes that may be responsible for the condition.

Scientists have also found specific brain malfunctions involved in dyslexia. Brain images show that dyslexia results from certain structural differences in the brain, particularly in the left hemisphere.

Brains of people with dyslexia show very little activity in areas known to be highly important in linking the written form of words with their phonetic components. So in order to read, people with dyslexia must sprout alternative neurological pathways. They compensate by making more use of a front-brain section called Broca's area, traditionally associated with other aspects of language processing and speech
