Dyslexia is a learning disability that causes people who suffer from it to have difficulty with written language because of how the brain interprets spoken and written language. The most common symptom associated with Dyslexia is confusing the letter order of written words.
Early signs of Dyslexia
One early sign a person might have with dyslexia is speech delay such as stuttering since many dyslexics have trouble processing spoken words they reproduce those difficulties in their own speech. Another sign of dyslexia is "immature" speech. Dyslexics can mix up sounds in words and may say "aminal" instead of "animal" or "wed" in place of "red".
Reading and spelling
More often than not people with dyslexia have the most trouble with reading and spelling because of the difficulty they have corresponding letters to sounds. Many times they will place over emphasis on a phonetic sound, writing "shud" for "should" or leave vowels out of words altogether.
Handwriting and vocabulary
Individuals with dyslexia, because of the problems they have with literacy, may have slower handwriting speed or may have poor handwriting skills causing them to form irregular shaped letters. Dyslexics will often times have a very small written vocabulary, even if they do in fact have a very large spoken vocabulary.
Getting help for Dyslexia
Because Dyslexia is a neurological deficiency only a qualified professional, such as an educational psychologist or a neurologist may accurately diagnose a person with Dyslexia.
