The History of Dyslexia
Although reading disorders were recognized back in the late 1800s, dyslexia didn't become a recognized condition until the 1970's-1980's. Since then, it has received copious amounts of research and professional based attention. However, many educators and clinicians are still mystified about how to best pinpoint the criteria/symptoms and many of these struggling students remain undiagnosed.
What is Dyslexia
A type of learning disability that results in problems learning to read and or spell, write and process words, letters, and other symbols. It does not impact overall intelligence.
Why Formal Diagnoses Do Not Use the Term Dyslexia
Dyslexia was once a formal diagnosis, however, with the new Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders DSM-5, they no longer use the term Dyslexia. Instead, they use Specific Learning Disorder. This diagnosis requires persistent difficulties in reading, writing, arithmetic, or math reasoning. In addition, academic achievement scores must be significantly below the average range in the areas of reading, writing, and/or math. They also suggest that learning difficulties can not be due to other conditions, like low intelligence, vision or hearing issues, or neurological problems. Testing professionals can add types or specifications in their reports such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia.
