Dyslexia is a sensory perception disorder that tends to be inherited. However, it can also be acquired through neurological damage too. A head injury or meningitis can impact an individual’s sensory perceptions which can, in turn, lead to a child exhibiting dyslexic traits. Whilst dyslexia can be a lifelong hurdle, individuals tend to build resilient coping strategies. These strategies help them succeed with learning and general day-to-day activities. Recognising their differences at a young age can help individuals find viable learning pathways. Especially when it comes to the way they read, write, listen.
Dyslexia is characterised by a visual and experiential learning style.
Yet in order to be diagnosed with dyslexia, both children and adults must first be tested for it. This involves standardised reading tests that: evaluate phonetic decoding skills, word reading ability, reading comprehension and more. It’s also important to note that those without dyslexia are able to recognise words both with and without the context of the written text. Whereas dyslexic individuals are more reliant on the context. In most cases, they will simply “hop” the words – allowing their creative minds to fill in the context of the sentence.

Dyslexia testing – the start of something good
If you’re dyslexic, it’s kind of your superpower – Orlando Bloom
Adults and children with dyslexia must know that it does not mean that they have a disability – it simply means that they learn differently. School systems cater to auditory learners. However, those with dyslexia work best when faced with visual aids. Those with dyslexia have thus had to adapt to become tactile and creative learners. Yet, if their true learning style was nurtured, who knows what they could achieve!
Being diagnosed with dyslexia at age 60 was, “like the last puzzle part in a tremendous mystery that I’ve kept to myself all these years” – Steven Spielberg
