The Common Symptoms and Signs of Dyslexia

Dyslexia is a disorder of the brain that causes a person to struggle with reading, math, and the comprehension of certain words and phrases. It also has an influence on the way that a person learns new things and perceives the order of events. Although doctors are not sure why, dyslexia occurs most often in people who have attention deficit disorder (ADD) or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). But children who were exposed to toxins or alcohol while they were still in the womb have a high risk of having it too.

Information. Although dyslexia is a condition of the brain, it doesn’t have anything to do with a person’s intelligence. In fact, some of the smartest people in the world have been dyslexic, such as Albert Einstein and Leonardo da Vinci. On top of this, research has shown that because those who have dyslexia view the world in a different way than others do, it makes them very good at solving difficult problems that most people would struggle with. That could be why many of the greatest geniuses of the world proudly discuss how they have the disorder.
