One of the things that every parent and teacher loves to see is a child enjoying a book and reading for pleasure. As parents and teachers of children with dyslexia we are always trying to find ways to help struggling readers to enjoy reading and see it as a relaxing experience.
Dyslexia is one of a group of specific learning difficulties. These difficulties have an effect on the processing of information. These difficulties, such as dyscalculia, dyspraxia and ADHD/ADD can often be diagnosed at the same time as a diagnosis of dyslexia, hence the name ‘co-occurring difficulties’.
These difficulties are unrelated to intelligence but may have a neurological origin and are often hereditary.
