Reading is a complex process. The process of reading requires our brains to connect sounds to letters. Once we connect those sounds, we must place those sounds in the correct order, drawing words together into sentences and paragraphs we can comprehend and read.
Individuals struggling with reading comprehension often feel frustrated, ashamed, and alone. However, they are not alone. According to the Yale Center for Dyslexia & Creativity, dyslexia is very common, impacting 20 percent of the population and represents 80–90 percent of all learning struggles.
With the right support, dyslexic individuals and people struggling with reading comprehension can become highly successful students and adults. ReadRX® has proven time and time again to help individuals overcome their struggles with reading comprehension, dyslexia, and other learning difficulties.
What is Dyslexia?
Individuals with dyslexia have trouble pairing the letters they see on the page with the sounds those letters and combinations of letters create. Essentially, when someone has trouble with this initial step of reading, all the other steps become harder. This can make the entire reading process difficult and frustrating.
Children and adults with dyslexia struggle to spell words correctly, may experience difficulty learning a second language and struggle with reading fluency, among other challenges. However, struggling with reading is in no way connected to overall intelligence. Intelligence isn’t the problem. Reading, writing, and spelling is. On the contrary, many people who struggle with dyslexia exhibit above average IQs. These individuals are often very fast, creative thinkers who possess strong reasoning abilities.
Signs of dyslexia or reading difficulties may include:
- Problems learning to speak
- Difficulty learning letters and their correlating sounds
- Difficulty organizing both written and spoken language
- Difficulty memorizing number facts
- The inability to read quickly enough to comprehend the words or paragraphs on the page
- Difficulty comprehending extended reading assignments
- Difficulty with spelling and word comprehension
- Difficulty completing and comprehending math operations
