Dyslexia is a reading or learning disability that limits individuals from successfully reading, spelling, and writing. Dyslexia can make it difficult for an individual to comprehend what he or she just read successfully. But if something is read out loud to them, they will not find such difficulty.
If the condition is successfully diagnosed during early ages itself, proper support and treatment can help minimize its effects. But there are many adults with dyslexia who have been undiagnosed. Unawareness of Dyslexia can limit ones academic and professional growth and success.
Also, it must be borne in mind that individuals with dyslexia do not suffer from any intelligence problem. They are as intelligent or not as any other person on the planet without dyslexia. But the limitations posed by the condition have caused many to feel that they are unintelligent. Or in some cases, even teachers and family have told them so.
But individuals with dyslexia have been known to succeed in life with the right coping strategies. Many such individuals have gone on to take up successful careers.
It is essential to get these individuals with dyslexia the help and support needed as early as possible. No matter what age the person is now, the right help can aid them in doing better.
The mere poor performance in academics does not mean that dyslexia is present. Many factors need to come together for dyslexia to be correctly diagnosed. There have been many cases where other conditions and issues have been thought of as the presence of dyslexia.
