The World Federation of Neurology defined “dyslexia as a disorder in children who despite conventional classroom learning fail to attain the language skills of reading, writing and spelling commensurate with their intellectual abilities.”
It simply means dyslexia is a difficulty in learning to read and write despite traditional instruction, average intelligence, and an adequate opportunity to learn.
Most people think dyslexia is only a reading problem, because this is the common understanding of the disability. However, it also had problems with comprehension, writing, Math, and many symptoms of ADD, such as staying focused or sitting still.
Some students displayed problems with just one or two areas; some had problems with all three, some just with reading.
ADD/ADHD Some children with ADD/ADHD are hyperactive, but many others with attention problems are not.
Dyscalculia is a specific learning disorder involving difficulties with learning and acquiring mathematical skills; in other words a Mathematics Disorder.
Dyspraxia is also known as Motor Learning Difficulties, Perceptuo-Motor Dysfunction, and Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD).
Dysgraphia is a specific learning disability in which our ability to express ourselves through written language is impaired.
