Dyslexia can be associated with .....

ADD/ADHD

ADD/ADHD Some children with ADD/ADHD are hyperactive, but many others with attention problems are not. Children with ADD/ADHD who are inattentive, but not overly active, may appear to be spacey and unmotivated An individual with ADHD finds it much more difficult to focus on something without being distracted. He has greater difficulty in controlling what he is doing or saying and is less able to control how much physical activity is appropriate for a particular situation compared to somebody without ADHD. In other words, a person with ADHD is much more impulsive and restless.

Medication is often prescribed for attention deficit disorder, but it might not be the best option for your child. Effective treatment for ADD/ADHD also includes education, behavior therapy, support at home and school, exercise, and proper nutrition.

Dyscalculia

Dyscalculia is a specific learning disorder involving difficulties with learning and acquiring mathematical skills; in other words a Mathematics Disorder. It means that a student has some difficulty in performing some aspects of arithmetic or mathematics. Having poor math skills can be due to a number of different causes but where the difficulties are so distinct, it is called dyscalculia. Math symbols comprise a language of their own, so they can be misinterpreted or transposed just like alphabet letters.

Dyspraxia

Dyspraxia is also known as Motor Learning Difficulties, Perceptuo-Motor Dysfunction, and Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD). A person with dyspraxia has problems with movement, coordination, judgment, processing, memory and some other cognitive skills. Individuals with dyspraxia often have language problems, and sometimes a degree of difficulty with thought and perception. Dyspraxia, however, does not affect the person's intelligence, although it can cause learning problems in children.

Dysgraphia

Dysgraphia is a specific learning disability in which our ability to express ourselves through written language is impaired. Simply put, dysgraphia describes difficulty with writing. Dysgraphia is not the result of an intellectual impairment, nor is it dependent upon your ability to read. Dysgraphia has the potential to cause problems with spelling, organizing words on a page, and putting your thoughts on paper. Dysgraphia may occur alone or with dyslexia. There’s no “cure” for dysgraphia but there are therapies and other tools that can make writing easier for your child and help your child thrive.
