What is Dyslexia?
For parents, if you find your children have difficulty in learning, don’t immediately judge that he is stupid. This is because it could be difficult for the baby to learn because he has dyslexia.
For information, dyslexia is one of the most common forms of specific learning difficulties experienced by children, among the two other forms of specific learning difficulties. For example, dysgraphia (difficulty writing) and dyscalculia (difficulty in counting).
Dyslexia, like dyscalculia and dysgraphia occurs in individuals with normal intelligence potential, even many of whom have intelligence levels far above average.
Therefore, dyslexia is referred to as a specific learning disability because the learning difficulties it faces only occur in one or a few specific academic areas. For example the area of reading, writing and counting.
So for parents, don’t be discouraged when your little one experiences this, Moms and Dads.
