Resources for approximately yr. It includes the advanced spelling code and integrated decodable texts.
However, emotional problems often arise because of it. The latter usually cover a variety of reading skills and deficits, and difficulties with distinct causes rather than a single condition.
Some sources, such as the U.
National Institutes of Health, define it specifically as a learning disorder. ICD 10the manual of medical diagnosis used in much of the world, includes separate diagnoses for "developmental dyslexia" Instead it includes dyslexia in a category called specific learning disorders.
Characteristics of dyslexia In early childhood, symptoms that correlate with a later diagnosis of dyslexia include delayed onset of speech and a lack of phonological awareness, as well as being easily distracted by background noise. Adults with dyslexia can often read with good comprehension, though they tend to read more slowly than others without a learning difficulty and perform worse in spelling tests or when reading nonsense words — a measure of phonological awareness.
Orthographies and dyslexia The orthographic complexity of a language directly impacts how difficult learning to read the language is. Dysgraphia — A disorder which primarily expresses itself through difficulties with writing or typing, but in some cases through difficulties associated with eye—hand coordination and direction or sequence-oriented processes such as tying knots or carrying out repetitive tasks.
Many people with dyslexia have auditory processing problems, and may develop their own logographic cues to compensate for this type of deficit. Some research indicates that auditory processing skills could be the primary shortfall in dyslexia.
Theories of dyslexia Researchers have been trying to find the neurobiological basis of dyslexia since the condition was first identified in Neurological research into dyslexia Modern neuroimaging techniques such as functional magnetic resonance imaging fMRI and positron emission tomography PET have shown a correlation between both functional and structural differences in the brains of children with reading difficulties.
Neural bases for the visual lexicon and for auditory verbal short-term memory components have been proposed,  with some implication that the observed neural manifestation of developmental dyslexia is task-specific i.
The cerebellum is also involved in the automatization of some tasks, such as reading. However, the cerebellar theory is not supported by controlled research studies.
Genetic research into dyslexia Research into potential genetic causes of dyslexia has its roots in post- autopsy examination of the brains of people with dyslexia. Abnormal cell formations in dyslexics have also been reported in non-language cerebral and subcortical brain structures.
Gene—environment interaction The contribution of gene—environment interaction to reading disability has been intensely studied using twin studieswhich estimate the proportion of variance associated with a person's environment and the proportion associated with their genes.
Studies examining the influence of environmental factors such as parental education  and teacher quality  have determined that genetics have greater influence in supportive, rather than less optimal, environments.

The second thread of reading instruction involves phonics and decoding. Phonics is the ability to identify that there is a relationship between the individual sounds (phonemes) of the spoken language and the letters (graphemes) of the written language. Decoding is being able to use visual, syntactic.
Animal experiments and measures of gene expression and methylation in the human periphery are used to study epigenetic processes; however, both types of study have many limitations in the extrapolation of results for application to the human brain.
Dual-route hypothesis to reading aloud The dual-route theory of reading aloud was first described in the early s. Studying the cognitive problems associated with other disorders helps to better understand the genotype-phenotype link of dyslexia.
The terms are applied to developmental dyslexia and inherited dyslexia along with developmental aphasia and inherited alexia, which are considered synonymous. Surface dyslexia In surface dyslexia, words with regular pronunciations highly consistent with their spelling, e.
This disorder is usually accompanied by surface agraphia and fluent aphasia.
Phonological dyslexia In phonological dyslexia, sufferers can read familiar words but have difficulty with unfamiliar words, such as invented pseudo-words. The superior temporal lobe is often also involved. Furthermore, dyslexics compensate by overusing a front-brain region called Broca's areawhich is associated with aspects of language and speech.
Case studies with a total of three patients found a significant improvement in spelling and reading ability after using LiPS.Useful Language & Collocations.
lab work = laboratory experiments; dissection = cutting up animals for scientific research; scheduled lessons = lessons which are planned and written into a school curriculum.

List-group-label is a form of semantic mapping. The strategy encourages students to improve their vocabulary and categorization skills and learn to organize concepts. Categorizing listed words, through grouping and labeling, helps students organize new concepts in relation to previously learned concepts.
