Dyslexia - Warning Signs And Symptoms In Children!

Dyslexia - Warning Signs And Symptoms In Children!

Raising a child with dyslexia can stir up a lot of emotions. You may look ahead and wonder if this learning issue will affect your child's future. But dyslexia is not a prediction of failure. Dyslexia is quite common, and many successful individuals have dyslexia.

Research has proven that there are different ways of teaching that can help people with dyslexia succeed. There's a lot you can do as a parent too.

What are the symptoms of dyslexia?

Because dyslexia affects some people more severely than others, your child's symptoms may look different from those in another child. Some kids with dyslexia have trouble with reading and spelling. Others may struggle to write or to tell left from right.

Dyslexia can also make it difficult for people to express themselves clearly. It can be hard for them to structure their thoughts during conversation. They may have trouble finding the right words to say.

Others struggle to understand what they're hearing. This is especially true when someone uses nonliteral language such as jokes and sarcasm.

The signs you see may also look different at various ages. Some of the warning signs for dyslexia, such as a speech delay, appear before a child reaches kindergarten. More often, though, dyslexia is identified in grade school. As schoolwork gets more demanding, trouble processing language becomes more apparent.

Here are some signs to look out for:

  1. Warning Signs in Preschool or Kindergarten
  2. Has trouble recognizing the letters of the alphabet
  3. Struggles to match letters to sounds, such as not knowing what sounds b or h make
  4. Has difficulty blending sounds into words, such as connecting C-H-A-T to the word chat
  5. Struggles to pronounce words correctly, such as saying 'mawn lower' instead of 'lawn mower'
  6. Has difficulty learning new words
  7. Has a smaller vocabulary than other kids the same age
  8. Has trouble learning to count or say the days of the week and other common word sequences
  9. Has trouble rhyming

Warning Signs in Grade School or Middle School-

  1. Struggles with reading and spelling
  2. Confuses the order of letters, such as writing 'left' instead of 'felt'
  3. Has trouble remembering facts and numbers
  4. Has difficulty gripping a pencil
  5. Has difficulty using proper grammar
  6. Has trouble learning new skills and relies heavily on memorization
  7. Gets tripped up by word problems in math
  8. Has a tough time sounding out unfamiliar words
  9. Has trouble following a sequence of directions

Warning Signs in High School-

  1. Struggles with reading out loud
  2. Doesn't read at the expected grade level
  3. Has trouble understanding jokes or idioms
  4. Has difficulty organizing and managing time
  5. Struggles to summarize a story
  6. Has difficulty learning a foreign language

Skills that are affected by Dyslexia-

Dyslexia doesn't just affect reading and writing. Here are some everyday skills and activities your child may be struggling with because of this learning issue:

  • Appears bright, highly intelligent, and articulate but unable to read, write, or spell at grade level.
  • Labelled lazy, dumb, careless, immature, "not trying hard enough," or "behavior problem."

  • Seems to "Zone out" or daydream often; gets lost easily or loses track of time.

  • Learns best through hands-on experience, demonstrations, experimentation, observation, and visual aids.

  • Reading or writing shows repetitions, additions, transpositions, omissions, substitutions, and reversals in letters, numbers and/or words.
  • Complains of feeling or seeing non-existent movement while reading, writing, or copying.
  • Seems to have difficulty with vision, yet eye exams don't reveal a problem.
  • Extremely keen sighted and observant, or lacks depth perception and peripheral vision.

Reads and rereads with little comprehension:

  • Spells phonetically and inconsistently.
  • Hearing and Speech Skills
  • Has extended hearing; hears things not said or apparent to others; easily distracted by sounds.

  • Unusually high or low tolerance for pain.
  • Strong sense of justice; emotionally sensitive; strives for perfection.

What can be done at home for dyslexia?

Helping your child with dyslexia can be a challenge, particularly if you're never been confident in your own reading and writing skills. But you don't have to be an expert to help work on certain skills or strengthen your child's self-esteem.

Keep in mind that kids (and families) are all different, so not all options will work for you. Don't panic if the first strategies you try aren't effective. You may need to try several approaches to find what works best for your child. Here are some things you can try at home:

  1. Read out loud every day
  2. Tap into your child's interests
  3. Use audiobooks
  4. Look for apps and other high-tech help
  5. Focus on effort, not outcome
  6. Make your home reader-friendly
  7. Boost confidence

What can make the journey easier?

Dyslexia can present challenges for your child and for you. But with the proper support, almost all people with dyslexia can become accurate readers. Your involvement will help tremendously.

Wherever you are in your journey, whether you're just starting out or are well on your way, this site can help you find more ways to support your child. Here are a few things that can help make the journey easier:

  1. Connect with other parents. Remember that you're not alone. Use our safe online community to find parents like you.
  2. Get behavior advice. Parenting Coach offers expert-approved strategies on a variety of issues that can affect children with dyslexia, including trouble with time management, anxiety and fear, frustration and low self-esteem.
  3. Build a support plan. Come up with a game plan and anticipate what lies ahead.

Understanding dyslexia and looking for ways to help your child is an important first step. There's a lot you can do just don't feel you have to do everything all at once. Pace yourself. If you try a bunch of strategies at the same time, it might be hard to figure out which ones are working. And do your best to stay positive. Your love and support can make a big difference in your child's life.

Hello Lybrate user. Need to know proper detail to find out the real cause. Please take help of any professional ,if you need my help you can contact me. We are the one who can control our feelings, emotions everything and instead of focussing on ourself we searches our happiness outside. It happens because we don't realise our power ,we can control our emotions and thoughts and bend it in such a way that it can be our strength. But it can't happen in 1 or 2 day it requires change in your approach towards life and here the importance of any professional arises who can show you the way. So please take help of any professional as soon as possible.in the mean while make yourself busy, make some good friends, don't just think and sit on these topics, develop some hobby ,write your thoughts on paper, eat healthy, don't skip meals. Take care.

Hello Lybrate user The above mentioned symptoms are indicative of negative thoughts inducing fear and thus causing anxiety. As you mentioned that you follow healthy lifestyle so try reassuring yourself about your good health and try to have more positive thoughts. Replacing negative thoughts by positive will help you in dealing with these symptoms. For professional help try consulting a clinical psychologist. Also try deep breathing exercises. You can also reach out to me through Lybrate.

Hi, Your brain needs a food rich in omega 3 fatty acids. To stay sharp, eat a diet rich in fish, walnuts, plenty of vegetables. Added sugars is not good as it can cause brain fog. Sample plan Breakfast- walnuts, boiled egg, carrots Lunch- whole grain rice, dal, vegetables Snack- apple Dinner- green leaves soup, grilled fish, steamed broccoli Physical activity also improves brain performance.

Try to relax by sitting calm in the nature. Practice pranayam and meditation in the natural green environment. Keep your electronic gadgets away from you for some time. Stay away from Social media and talk with your parents regarding your problems and everything will be fine soon. If you still have any issue you can share your thoughts with me.

Hi, Disease Comes From Yourself And You Don’t Realize It. We are the only species on the face of the Earth capable of transforming our biology through our thoughts and feelings. Our cells are constantly watching our thoughts and are being modified by them. A bout of depression can devastate our immune system; a state of serenity, in contrast, can fortify it tremendously. Joyful and harmonious activity can keep us healthy and prolong our life. The memories of a negative or sad situation release the same hormones and biological destructive substances that stress does. Our cells are constantly processing all our experiences and metabolizing them according to our personal points of view. As a result, our bodies are transformed as soon as we internalize our interpretations. A depressed person, for example, will project sadness throughout his or her entire body. When depression occurs, the production of neurotransmitters from the brain are altered, hormone levels will vary, the sleep cycle is interrupted, the neuropeptide receptors on the outer surface of the skin cells are modified, blood platelets become more viscous and more likely to form lumps and even the tears will contain different chemical trails as those of joy. This entire biochemical profile will change drastically once the person becomes calm and serene. These facts confirm the great need to use our consciousness to create the bodies that we really need. The same way the aging process can be neutralized every day. Shakespeare was not being metaphorical when through his character Prosperous said: “We are made of the same stuff as dreams”. Do you want to know how is your body doing today? Then remember what your thoughts and emotions were yesterday. Do you want to know how your body will be tomorrow? Observe your thoughts and emotions today! Remember that when you open up your heart and your mind you will be avoiding a surgeon doing it for you. The remedy is within you and you are not using it. Disease comes from yourself and you don’t realize it.

Ever wish a stress superhero could save you from the tension of traffic jams, chaotic meetings, arguments with your spouse, or a toddler’s tantrums? Well, you can be your own stress-busting superhero. Using your senses, you can tap into the power to reduce the impact of stress as it’s happening and stay in control when the pressure builds. Like any skill, learning how to ease stress in the moment takes time, experimentation, and practice, but the payoff is huge. When you know how to quickly relieve stress, you can stay calm, productive, and focused—no matter what life throws at you.

When your thoughts start to spin out of control during a stressful moment, stop and reframe your thinking. By your choice of perspective, you direct how your body will respond—in fight or flight, or in creative choices and solution-based responses

Words could be great stress relievers. One technique to quell sudden stress is to repeat a phrase from which you draw power and strength. “Think positively about releasing what is bothering you by repeating a positive mantra that uplifts you such as, ‘I am at peace,

When stress attacks, it can feel like your whole world is crashing down. Remind yourself what’s good in your life with a quick gratitude round-up.

Escape from a stressful situation by remembering a favorite vacation spot or a place where you feel cozy and at home. Make sure to take note of every detail of your favorite spot—the more detailed your visualization, the more stress gets kicked to the curb.

Need to know proper details to rule out more clear picture of your problem. Please consult any psychologist and let them decide the extent of your problem. Don't decide by yourself whether you are in depression or not. If you need my help you can contact me online. And for your physical problem such as low bp you need to consult any physician so that to rule out the reason for your low bp. Take care.
