The latest brain researches in dyslexia tell us there are no difference between a dislexic person and others except they have difficulty to impact learning. Ok they need more time than others to do homeworks in schools and colleges. Because they may find it difficult to manage things such as spelling, the meaning of long sentences, and a list of instructions. They need more time to reinforce their understanding by repeating or summarizing what is said regularly and at short intervals.
In fact they don’t know how it happens. It’s their brains who process the information differently. The dislexical condition can control right-brain dominant for process information in an intuitive, visual and intuitive way.
