Dyslexia is a learning disorder generally characterized by reading difficulty. It is more common than what most people think. Parents are usually distraught when they have children diagnosed with dyslexia. They worry about whether their children will be able to function well in society. Most teachers, once they find out that one of the children in their class has this condition, are usually supportive. Although not all teachers received training on how to handle children with dyslexia, most of them are aware of the condition and know how to give adequate support in the classroom. The good news is that dyslexia is a manageable disorder. This condition is not a prediction of failure. In fact, many successful adults are actually dyslexic, and their situation does not deter their success in life. With the support of parents and teachers as well as other people around them, people with dyslexia are able to live normally and even thrive in life. Research has proven that there are different ways to manage dyslexia and parents and teachers can help children manage their condition through various means.Dyslexia: A Beginner's Overview and Guide to Overcoming Dyslexia will give relevant information on dyslexia to help everyone understand it better, and give strategies and ways to help children manage this condition.
