Dyslexia is a lifelong condition which primarily deals with troubled reading. It can also affect a child's writing, comprehension and speaking skills. Children suffering from dyslexia are often unsocial, lethargic and daydream. But dyslexia is not an illness that can affect your child's growth. Several renowned achievers are known to be dyslexic but have still made their presence felt across the world through their achievements. Some of the popular celebrities who had dyslexia include Sir Richard Branson, Pablo Picasso etc.
According to Sir Richard Branson, "I was dyslexic and I had no understanding of schoolwork, whatsoever. I certainly would have failed IQ tests. It was one of the reasons I left school when I was 15years old. And, if I'm not interested in something, I don't grasp it." And it's no secret to what he has achieved today.
Children suffering from dyslexia are commonly observed to face difficulty while reading and even speaking as they cannot concentrate easily. But dyslexic children are reported to have an appetite for ideas, sports, designing, art, and business. However that happens at a later stage, and during childhood these children may suffer from low self-esteem and frustration. In such a case, it is crucial for parents to be by their child's side and help him feel positive. It is also essential to prepare him to be mentally strong as bullying in school can cause damage to him psychologically and might hurt his self-esteem.
