Treatment of Dyslexia
The inability to learn how to read and write is termed as a learning disorder called ‘dyslexia’. People suffering from dyslexia are not unintelligent but they are unable to grasp the concepts of learning in a way which is normal for others in their age group. Many suffer from this disability throughout their lives and although there is no cure for dyslexia, treatment of dyslexia can be sought through specific remedial programs once the disorder has been diagnosed.

I created http://www.dyslexiaconsultants.com/ to provide the best general information on dyslexia online. In order to support the website I am starting an online tutoring business for highly motivated dyslexic high school and college students, using an innovative new approach based on the latest research in neural science, which was presented at the International Dyslexia Association, New York City Branch, in 2006.

What causes dyslexia?
Dyslexia is a neurological order in the brain in the part which handles the reading and writing tasks. It can be hereditary or developmental. Hereditary dyslexia is generally seen in families in which either of the parent or close relatives are dyslexics. Developmental dyslexia can be due to hormonal effects on the developing fetus and it can improve over time.
Identifying dyslexia for treatment of dyslexia
Knowing how to identify the signs of dyslexia will help educators/parents to seek treatment of dyslexia for the child as soon as possible and this is important as early intervention can help overcome this disability to a large extent.
Treatment of dyslexia through various ways
Children suffering from this earning disorder cannot cope with schoolwork when taught by the usual methods because they absorb and grasp things in a different way. One of the best ways through which a child can benefit at school is if the multi-sensory teaching method is adopted by educators. As treatment of dyslexia this system works very well as dyslexics are very senses-oriented people and this method uses more than one of the senses for proper learning.
For the average child it is easy enough to assimilate what the teacher is saying or writing but for the dyslexic child it may be difficult to employ either one or both senses together. Words appear to jump around them or are fuzzy and while they may be hearing what the teacher is saying their brain processes that information poorly. The multi-sensory approach utilizes visual, auditory and kinesthetic aids out of which the kinesthetic is the best as it allows the dyslexic child to touch and feel objects. This helps him retain information better.
Treatment of dyslexia also involves enrolling the child in special education classes which are geared specifically towards teaching children with a learning disorder. The main objective is to build the child’s self-confidence and pace out the lessons in a way suited to his ability so that he is gradually able to pick up the learning skills. This can be done through pointing out words while reading aloud as it helps in connecting words and associated sounds. To simplify learning tables and alphabets, memory games are useful as well as fun for the child. Since motor skills are also known to be poorly developed in dyslexic children, physical games like skipping, jumping, football will help in their motor co-ordination.
Dyslexia is not an insurmountable disorder; with early identification and correct diagnosis, treatment of dyslexia can be done effectively which will significantly improve the learning abilities of the individual.
