Free Guide: Signs of Dyslexia at Every Age
What does dyslexia look like in early childhood? The middle grades? High school? Learn how to recognize the telltale traits of this learning difference and best address reading challenges at every age.
Dyslexia is defined as difficulty with spelling and word recognition. While some individuals with dyslexia do read words backward, this learning difference manifests differently in different people; it is complex. Symptoms of dyslexia vary from difficulty breaking down words into syllables to trouble with the accuracy, fluency, and comprehension of the material being read.
When symptoms of dyslexia are left unidentified and interventions missed, it can cause psychological, academic, and professional harm. Yet, studies show that, when a child’s symptoms are identified early, their scores on self-esteem rating scales mirror those of their non-dyslexic counterparts. Early identification is essential.
