Hi,
Medical science has known since the mid 1990's that dyslexics actually us a different parts of their brains to read than do non dyslexics. That would not be a problem except that the parts they are using are not as well adapted as they could be for that process so when they attend school the school assumes they have skills that they do not. To make matters worse all dyslexics are somewhat different so the school has no way of efficiently dealing with them.
If you would like to see what an efficient and effective program to reverse dyslexia looks like one can be found at *link removed*. Big plus it is in a video game format.

Diagnosable dyslexia, as diagnosed by a neuropsychologist, involves a lack of phonemic awareness, deficits with working memory, and often other cognitive deficits. Dyslexia is NOT a vision issue. There are, however, many treatments for other conditions that people THINK are treatments for "dyslexia".

For example, vision therapy corrects ocular motor deficits. A child with eye-tracking difficulties can have difficulty reading, but it is true dyslexia. The difficulty with reading may meet with the definition of the word dyslexia (difficulty with words), but ocular motor issues are not the specific learning disability diagnosed as dyslexia.

Other conditions like Scotopic Sensitivity and Visual Perception difficulties are often thought to be "dyslexia," but again--that would only be by definition of the word dyslexia, not by the diagnosis of the learning disability.

Hope that helps!

People with dyslexia have problems understanding what they read. Dyslexia is a neurological and often genetic condition, and not the result of poor teaching, instruction, or upbringing.

Dyslexia is different from delayed reading development, which may reflect mental disability or cultural deprivation.

The most common signs and symptoms associated with dyslexia can be displayed at any age, but they normally present in childhood.
