Hi Mam Agil. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
We can understand what concerns you have. Often parents and teachers feel confused when children have difficulty reading even simple texts or have difficulty following lessons at school. In fact, it is not uncommon for parents and teachers to think that the child is unfocused, lazy or less intelligent without finding out the real cause. This type of learning disorder is often referred to as dyslexia (dyslexia) which is a learning disorder in the fields of reading, writing and spelling that is often experienced by children aged 7 to 8 years. Dyslexia is a special learning disorder that is not influenced by a person's level of intelligence.
The cause of dyslexia is not yet known with certainty, however, there are factors that are thought to be the cause of dyslexia such as heredity (genetic), where if there is a family history of dyslexia, the child will have a greater risk of developing dyslexia as well. . In addition, neurological factors related to brain anatomy, such as abnormalities in brain development and function can trigger dyslexia in a person. Some experts argue that dyslexics lack or do not use the part of their left brain, the part of the brain that regulates spelling, reading and writing abilities. They have difficulty processing phonemes, which are the smallest units in a word that can still show different meanings when spoken. Olek because it is reading and writing activities that are difficult to do because the brain has to arrange letters, words, or sentences to convey their meaning correctly.
Common symptoms of dyslexia are:
Delay in communication (pronunciation) which is an early symptom at an early age
Difficulty reading and writing
Learning to speak too late
Not good at writing
Creative and smart
Difficulty pronouncing new words
Although dyslexia cannot be cured, early treatment can help improve reading skills for dyslexics. Dyslexia treatment is adjusted according to the severity of dyslexia experienced and the results of psychological tests. The usual approach is special educational assistance that is primarily directed at phonological skills in order to recognize and understand the words, letters and sentences that make up sounds and be able to understand what is being read. Apart from special educational assistance, parental support is also needed to obtain optimal treatment results. For more complete information, please click the dyslexia article. May be useful.
