Although the precise causes of dyslexia are not known as of yet, there are several theories that excuse that dyslexia can be an identifiable disorder, meaning that another person's negligence could be partially responsible for a child's seeming developmental learning disorders. Dyslexia, as it is known, is a learner disorder that affects a person's ability to read and write permanently. In general, the disorder has been known to affect all textual encounters, meaning that both words and numbers are affected by dyslexia.
Dyslexia commonly appears as a developmental disorder in children, often linked to genetics. While there is an inherited basis for some cases of dyslexia, there is also a significant amount of study that indicates that repeated abuse to the hearing systems of a child can generate dyslexia. Known as glue ear, children can suffer from a thick buildup in the ears that has been linked to dyslexia.
To treat dyslexia, the process is long and arduous. Sufferers can not be cured of dyslexia with the current treatment options. Instead, the disorder requires constant reinforcement of proper spelling and reading tactics, as well as some cognitive treatments to better organize textual information.
While this can be a problematic disorder personally, it also affects a person's future success socially. Children with dyslexia are commonly cited as poor performers in grammar and English classes, often passing over as unintelligent instead of learning disabled. Contrary to that perception, dyslexics can be extremely intelligent and creative individuals. As the disorder affects a very specific area of cognitive functioning, dyslexia can be thought of like other instances of brain damage, which does not generally affect overall intelligence.
