What is Dyslexia?

The most accurate description I have heard is “mirror-eyed.” However, this is just part of the problem. Dyslexia has been considered a visual disorder, but research has now determined it to be a hearing disorder as well. Yale University Medical School has determined, by using an MRI of the brains of dyslexics while reading, that activity occurs in the frontal region. This is the part of the brain that governs articulated speech. In contrast, the average reader's brain shows activity in the lower back area where letters and sounds are integrated. As a result, the dyslexic does not hear what they are reading. This is why there is no comprehension or retention of information. When the brain, eyes, and ears are not functioning in unison, information is scattered and lost. The brain can be retrained and rewired to take in written information collectively.
