What are the causes of dyslexia or developmental reading disorder?
DRD (Developmental reading disorder) or dyslexia occurs when brain cannot interpret language, due to some problem in certain areas in the brain. Vision problem is not responsible for this problem. The problem occurs due to some specific problem of processing of some information. Other than this problem, the affected person does not get interfered with his or her ability to understand or think about the complex ideas. Most of the patients, suffering from DRD are found to have normal intelligence. Even some of them have more than average intelligence.
The conditions like Developmental Arithmetic Disorder or Developmental Reading Disorder are the example of DRD. DRD is often found to be a family run or hereditary disease.
Any DRD affected person cannot separate sounds nor can he or she rhythm, which are very much essential for speaking words. All these abilities are also important for learning to read. By basing on word recognition, a child can develop his or her reading skills and which bases recognizing words. In this stage a normal person separates out the sounds with the help of the words and gets them matched with the groups of letters and single letter.
Since the persons with the DRD conditions find it difficult to connect the language’s sound with the letters of the word, they might face difficulty in understanding the meaning of the sentence.
The patients with true dyslexia are more affected than the confusions or transposons. The example is confusing “b” as “d”
