Dyslexics that have a specific speech processing deficit at the sensory level which could be used to identify children at risk at an early age. Others could have a hearing distortion, partial or total deafness in one or both ears that will likely affect their hearing, speech and interpretation patterns. Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurological in origin. It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction. Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede growth of vocabulary and background knowledge.
