Dyslexia is the capacity to process information differently, enabling innovative thought and perception. It is characterised by a visual and experiential learning style. Methods using this learning style allow dyslexic people to realise their capabilities and minimise the negative impact commonly developed by conventional methods.
A study shows that variables such as gender, food intake, and genetic and neurological risk factors, were associated with reading disabilities in school children. Children were mainly from low and middle economic strata and aged between 6 to 12 years.
There is no cure for dyslexia, but the person can benefit from specialised support, which could include, a multi-sensory approach to learning, which means using as many different senses as possible such as seeing, listening, doing and speaking.
Dyslexia is resistant to traditional teaching and regular tutoring.Individuals with dyslexia have average to superior intelligence and can learn they just learn differently and therefore need to be taught differently.Dyslexia can be seen as a language based learning difference.
