Research has shown that the hallmark symptoms of dyslexia in a deep orthography are a deficit in phonological awareness and difficulty reading words.

Sometimes, the latter group is known as 'garden variety' poor readers. As The Dyslexia Debate demonstrates, the basis for determining a dyslexic subgroup from a wider pool of poor readers is highly problematic. Background In addition to their impairments in literacy-related skills, dyslexic children show characteristic difficulties in phonological skill, motor skill, and balance.

There is behavioural and biochemical evidence that these difficulties may be attributable to mild cerebellar dysfunction. difficulty with, or little interest in, learning letters of the alphabet; Schoolchildren. Symptoms of dyslexia usually become more obvious when children start school and begin to focus more on learning how to read and write.

Weird and wonderful spellings go with the territory when your child is learning to write. But while most children will eventually learn to spell correctly most of the time – with exceptions, of course – children with dyslexia can have difficulty throughout their lives.

But while spelling can be a challenge for dyslexic children, they can adopt techniques that make it easier. Dyslexic children may be able to spell a word one day and not the next and can find high frequency service words, such as prepositions, articles and conjunctions, particularly difficult to learn.
