My brother has dyslexia and I never really understood what it was.  I did some reasearch and found out dyslexia is reading disability that occurs when the brain does not properly recognize and process certain symbols.  I looked up fun facts about preception and I found out that even though people with dyslexia don't have any hearing problem they might also precieve certain words wrong when being spoken to. This means that dyslexia can not only the way the person reads, but what they hear. I found this video on youtube and it helped me understand how people with dyslexia percieve words.



  1. That's really interesting! Something new to me. Nice post.

  2. I have dyslexia. I have managed to overcome it. It does overpower me when I am really tired and can't fight it. People who have dyslexia also jumble up words. You might want to look up dyscalculia. That's a form of number dyslexia. It's when someone jumbles up numbers instead of letters.
