TYPES OF DYSLEXIA
There are three basic types of Dyslexia,
with the possibility of some people experiencing characteristics
of any two of them, or even all three.
1) MOTOR DYSLEXIA
– difficulty in the ability to make the correct movements to write
a given symbol (letter) correctly.
For example: "b" written for "d".
(also referred to as "Dysnemkinesia")
2) AUDITORY DYSLEXIA
– difficulty in the integration of the sound and the symbol of letters
and to develop skills in analysis (dividing words into syllables)
and synthesis (to pronounce and hear different sounds in unfamiliar words).
For example: reads "house" instead of "home" ;
writes "aminal" instead of "animal".
(also referred to as "Dysphonesia")
3) VISUAL DYSLEXIA
– difficulty in the ability to perceive whole words as visual forms and
to make the connection with auditory forms.
For example: reads "ball" for "bell" ; writes "enuf" for "enough".
(also referred to as "Dyseidesia")
4) MOTOR-AUDITORY DYSLEXIA
– characteristics of BOTH Motor and Auditory Dyslexia
5) MOTOR-VISUAL DYSLEXIA
– characteristics of BOTH Motor and Visual Dyslexia
6) AUDITORY-VISUAL DYSLEXIA
– characteristics of BOTH Auditory and Visual Dyslexia
7) MOTOR-AUDITORY-VISUAL DYSLEXIA
- characteristics of ALL THREE types of Dyslexia
- characteristics of Motor, Auditory AND Visual Dys
