Extra problems with reading difficulties
Children with dyslexia often suffer from anxiety and depression as well, according to a new Norwegian study at the University of Stavanger (UiS). But teachers fail to pick this up.
Dyslexia and intelligence
Dyslexia is a term which is often used synonymously with the term specific reading difficulties. Specific reading difficulties are often associated with a person struggling to learn, despite normal intelligence. On the contrary, learning difficulties and general reading difficulties are associated with low intelligence.
Challenging dyslexia research
There is disturbingly little discussion and reflection around basic concepts in dyslexia research, says associate professor Per Henning Uppstad at the Center for Reading Research at the University of Stavanger.
