Brief: The world of dyslexic children is quite complex. An innovative system for screening has to be in place for empowering the teachers to quantify the problems being faced by such children. Teachers can evaluate the strength and weaknesses of the dyslexic children through these screenings and can teach the children in ways that will lead to best possible results.
Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that mainly affects the development of literacy and language related skills. The dyslexic children often have problems in putting the words together, they are unable to spell or write. The wonderful news is that appropriate teaching can bring about an improvement in the logical skills, spelling, and also the confidence of the dyslexic children. But the bad news is that with lack of support, the child experiences continuous failure and the problems become intense and generalised. A cost effective solution has to be made to help the children in improving skills.
