Dyslexia is a congenital and developmental condition that causes neurological anomalies in the brain. It is a learning disability, characterised by difficulty reading and writing, in spite of normal intelligence or cognitive abilities.
The exact cause of dyslexia is unclear but many experts believe the condition is hereditary meaning it runs in families. The condition changes the way the brain deals with information and certain genes inherited from parents may be to blame but how this passes on from generation to generation is unknown.
Children with dyslexia will develop coping strategies in order to disguise the condition but it becomes apparent when there is difficulty with reading or writing. Coping strategies can be positive such as working harder to compensate or developing long-term memory skills. Negative strategies may be displayed by the child pretending to be unintelligent to mask their inability to read or write correctly.
Diagnosis of dyslexia is carried out using screening and assessment methods. Screening involves asking the child a series of questions or testing their ability with grammar, words and sounds. While this process doesn't confirm dyslexia, it may indicate a high probability of being dyslexic.
Dyslexia assessment involves more rigorous testing of intellectual and learning ability by a healthcare specialist (such as an education psychologist).
Assessment methods used include: examining language development skills, vocabulary, memory and visual/auditory speed.
