Dyslexia and languages


Today I went to a meeting to discuss about what sort of support for reading and writing. We agreed to order TorTalk, stavaRex and spellright. Then I asked the speech specialist if it possible to have dyslexia in other languages such as Hindi, Mandarin and Arabic. Those languages do not have the same letters as us, so may be people do not same the issues with dyslexia with the reading or/and spelling.

The photo is from Pune, near to a local college with open area to take a walk. The lady sold different forms of cereal. The lady was so sweet, and in the end I do not think she took over price when I bought it alone.

For example may be the languages which spell the words as the sounds are easier for people with dyslexia. The speech specialist did not have good answer on my question, but said may be people with a good virtual memory has easier to read Mandarin. Also, I got to know, the speech specialist told me they do not recommend any practices for older people due to lack of time and that we have done exercises when we kids. Instead we should get the habits of using the support products in our common life.
