What is Dyslexia?
Dyslexia is a learning problem in recognizing letters and letter sounds, failure or difficulty in combining letter sounds and syllables into words (unable to spell and read). As for the difficulties that arise in children with dyslexia are different, some can read but can not understand what is read, feel restless when seeing many letters and words in a paragraph, and there are several other problems.
The existence of learning difficulties in these children does not mean that they are stupid. This actually shows that they are genius children, because they are focused and concentrated only on what they are interested in. However, unfortunately, many parents get it wrong and send their dyslexic child to special school. Whereas children with special needs (ABK) are clearly different from children with dyslexia.
Dyslexia in Indonesia
This happens because there is still little understanding and awareness about dyslexia in Indonesia. Therefore, this seminar was held with the aim of increasing the awareness of the Indonesian people about the existence of learning disorders in children, especially Dyslexia. The speakers for this seminar were Puan Bulan Ayu, Program Director, Dyslexia Genius Malaysia and Mr. Jaldeen Bin Mohd. Ali is the founder of DDaT and the Malaysian SPTBiD Program. This seminar also aims to introduce the SPTBiD Program which has succeeded in helping Dyslexia children in Malaysia in dealing with Dyslexia learning disorders.
