VISUAL DYSLEXIA

Visual Dyslexia is a form of dyslexia where the child feels the letters are bouncing around the page, see double, find them blurry, etc. They simply cannot see the letters normally and therefore cannot read them.

PHONOLOGICAL DYSLEXIA

Students have trouble connecting the letter to their sounds. For example, take the word C-A-T. You put the sounds C, A and T together to make the word CAT. Students with phonological dyslexia can't connect the 'C' sound with the letter C. It takes more time for them to retain the information. They also tend to mix up certain words and letters. This is a very common form of dyslexia which means there are more forms of treatment for it.

AUDITORY DYSLEXIA

This is also known as auditory processing disorder. It means that the child takes a longer time to process information they hear. Their ears and brains do not work together. They can hear sounds, but have a hard time understanding what has been said and cannot understand the differences in words at times. The best treatment for this is to seek help from a speech language pathologist-a professional trained to work with children who have auditory disabilities.
