Yesterday a reader commented in my article dated February 20th 2010. I have copied the article he has referred to.  This article says that the reading difficulty is a brain disorder which I disagree with. This is similar to saying that a left hander has a brain disorder. It is simply that dyslexics think and learn in a different way than the majority of the population just like left handers do things differently than the majority of the population. Would anyone dare say that people like Tom Cruise, Lee Kuan Yew, Whoopi Goldberg, Bill Gates , Steven Spielberg and many other dyslexics have a brain disorder.

Following is the article in full. 

Dyslexia doesn't exist in Italy like it does in the U.S. and England! 

Dyslexia is a learning disorder that manifests itself as a difficulty with reading and spelling. It is separate and distinct from reading difficulties resulting from other causes, such as a non-neurological deficiency with vision or hearing, or from poor or inadequate reading instruction. It is estimated that dyslexia affects between 5% to 17% of the U.S. population.

Dyslexia is thought to be the result of neurological defect, and though not an intellectual disability, it is variously considered a learning disability, a language disability, and a reading disability, among others. Dyslexia is diagnosed in people of all levels of intelligence.

A STUDY of dyslexic adults has shown that simplifying English spellings could be one way to help sufferers.

Teach them about the grip, teach them about the different styles straight edge and serrated. How to operate it properly and how to keep it clean

Video Games

Research has shown that videos games can significantly improve the brain power of kids. Whether these are normal games such as sports or games like CSGO. It can increase awareness, reaction time, and critical thinking. Kids who play games are sometimes more creative and are able to solve problems faster than those who do not play games.
