Dyslexia is the most common reason a bright child will struggle with spelling, writing, or reading. But it affects many other areas as well. Children with dyslexia also have difficulty:

  • Memorizing their address, the alphabet, or their multiplication tables
  • Learning to tie their shoes
  • Writing some letters or numbers backwards past the end of first grade
  • Learning to tell time on a clock with hands
  • Telling left from right. Confusing letter pairs such as b-d, b-p,p-q, or g-j
  • Saying sounds in the right order in multi-syllable words such as animal, spaghetti, hamburger, consonant
  • Handwriting: their letters don’t sit on the line, 

    there may be odd spacing between their words, 
    tall letters are sometimes written as short ones,
    tails don’t always hang below the line, 
    sentences often don’t start with capital letters, and 
    punctuation is often left out.
