Dyslexia is a learning problem that makes it difficult to read correctly. This problem, which is one of the most common learning problems, implies that the child in question cannot acquire precision or fluency when reading. Dyslexia, consequently, can generate other problems, such as reading comprehension problems, handwriting and spelling problems or logical reasoning problems , especially those related to mathematics.

Dyslexia does not affect, in any way, the intelligence of those who suffer from it, and it is not related to vision problems, although this is created many times when dyslexia usually manifests itself with a disordered and altered type of writing.

Although it is true that, although it does not affect intelligence, it can add quite a few stones on the way to the dyslexic child, since it will require greater concentration and effort when facing their academic life than another child who does not suffer from this problem .

Therefore, although dyslexia is a problem that has no cure, we must find a way to minimize its consequences in order to improve the lives of those who suffer from it, affecting their academic performance as little as possible.

Simple steps to help a child with dyslexia

  • Work with exercises to improve vocabulary and memory.
  • It manages to make the social environment of the child aware of the problem, in search of the cooperation of all the people involved in their education (teachers, grandparents …).
  • Do reading practice frequently without forcing the situation too much and trying to focus on simple and common words for the child.
  • Do activities focused on the association of words with sounds or phonological awareness , they are very effective.
  • Look for interactive applications and systems that can help your child or student in their reading process.
  • Find audio books and audio stories so that the child can enjoy reading like any other without stress. Listening to a text by third parties is always easier than reading it directly when confronting its understanding.

I am 64 years old and at 60 I saw a program by which I identified that I have this problem. Knowing it helped me a lot in my esteem, I understand that it is a congenital disease.
The question is: how can I improve this at my age?
I cannot read aloud more than 8 lines.
The same in writing.
Concentration, memory is not much.

The truth is that I have been through everything …
