DYSLEXIA-READING AND WRITING DIFFICULTIES

 “A complex neurological condition, which is constitutional in origin. The symptoms may affect various areas of learning and function and may be described as a specific difficulty in reading, spelling and written language. One or more of these areas may be affected: numeracy, notational skills (music), motor function and organisational skills. However, it is particularly related to mastering written language, although oral language may be affected to some degree.” – British Dyslexia Association

 

Children may also exhibit the following:

 

  • Difficulties with automatic balance

  • Immature motor skills

  • Auditory processing problems

  • Abnormal processing of visual information

 

All academic learning is connected in some way to the functioning of the motor system. Reading is not a purely cognitive task; it requires eye movements. Writing involves hand-eye coordination with the automatic support of the postural system.
