Most people think dyslexia is a condition that involves reading from right to left and reversing words and letters, but it is just a symptom 4. Dyslexia runs in families, and scientists discovered that certain genes cause it5. Early identification of children with this learning disability makes a critical difference in their remediation

SYMTOMS/HOW IT'S DIAGNOSEDDyslexia is usually self- diagnosable.Symptoms include: late talking, learning new words slowly, and a delay in learning to read.Other symptoms are difficulty memorizing, difficulty thinking and understanding/difficulty spelling. Also common: speech disorder, headache, or delayed reading ability

He invented the light bulb, phonograph, motion picture camera, and is credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory

CAUSE/HOW IT'S TREATEDDyslexia tends to run in families, and researchers have identified the genes that may be responsible for the condition.Scientists have also found specific brain differences involved in dyslexia. Brain images show that dyslexia results from certain structural differences in the brain, particularly in the left hemisphere.People with dyslexia sometimes have tutors to help them, but most people don't. Other ways to help those affected by dyslexia may also take speech classes/lessons. There is no cure for dyslexia, but the treatments listed above help.
