Not every individual is same but we as parents still start expecting our kids to be superbly gifted with intelligence, an exceptionally good learner with unparalleled skill sets and what not, just after the baby is born.
For few parents, all hell breaks loose when they learn about their toddler’s struggle and inability to learn & speak the same way as peers in their growing years. And this could be due to dyslexia. Awareness about dyslexia is needed at the root level of counseling to avoid the panic & stress that a kid and his family go in the absence of its information.
First, it should be clear that Dyslexia is not a disease or a big problem leading to the end of the world. Instead, it is a condition with the slight inability to learn and read properly and has nothing to do with a child’s intellect. It’s a specific learning disability in reading. Kids with dyslexia have trouble reading perfectly without a glitch. They may also have trouble with spelling, writing accurately and reading comprehensions. But with little support and stimulus, a kid can conquer this difficulty and create a mark of his own, just like his counterparts.
There are so many legendary people like Einstein & Steven Spielberg to name a few, well known for their contribution in their field of work. They too had gone through tough times with this disability but came victorious. In fact, NASA has reported its 50% of employees with dyslexia, but they are valued for their problem-solving skills.
