It’s common to repeat yourself when reading or speaking. But when you’re talking to someone who has dyslexia, this habit can be a sign that they’re struggling to read and process the words you’re saying.
If the person you’re talking to is having trouble with understanding what you’re saying, try to pay attention to the words that they’re missing or that they’re slow to understand.
When you do this, it’s important to look at the other person’s eyes. You can do this by looking at the other person’s face and then moving your eyes around the person’s face. You can also speak to the person with dyslexia in a soft voice so that they can hear you better.
If you’re trying to help a friend with dyslexia, it’s important to be patient and try to understand where they’re struggling.
If you’re talking to a child or teenager, try to keep the conversation focused on the person’s favorite subject, not just on what they’re struggling with.
What you can do?
If you want to help someone with dyslexia, there are many different things you can do. But it’s important to remember that not everyone is going to react the same way.
If you’re talking to someone in person, try to speak with them in a calm, reassuring voice.
You may also want to look into some dyslexia apps or online activities, which can help you practice reading and spelling words and sentences.
For example, the New York Times has a section on dyslexia apps.
You can also try to get a friend or family member to read to you.
If you’re trying to help someone with dyslexia, try to remember that dyslexia is not a mental health condition. It’s a literacy and language issue. It’s not something to be embarrassed about or to feel ashamed of.
If you think that your friend or family member is struggling with dyslexia, remember that it’s okay to ask for help.
It’s also important to remember that the best way to support someone with dyslexia is to try to help them learn to read and write.
Supporting someone who struggles with dyslexia can help them learn to read and write, so they can do better in school.
Supporting someone with dyslexia can also help them feel that there is a community of people who understand and care about their struggles.
If you have a friend or family member who has dyslexia, it’s important to encourage them to get support and ask for help.

What is dyslexia?
Dyslexia is a learning disorder that affects the brain.
It’s a learning disability that can make it difficult to learn to read and write.
Some people with dyslexia have an inherited disorder called dyslexia.
If you have a parent or sibling with dyslexia, you’re more likely to have it yourself.
If you have dyslexia, you might also have a few other conditions that affect your learning.
- Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
- Autism spectrum disorder (ASD)
- Reading disabilities
- Learning disabilities
What causes it?
The exact cause of dyslexia isn’t clear. But there are some things that are thought to increase your risk of having it.
If you’re a child of a person with dyslexia, you’re more likely to have it yourself.
It’s also possible that having a child with a parent or sibling with dyslexia increases your risk.
It’s not clear why having a parent or sibling with dyslexia is linked to a higher risk of dyslexia.
Some brain injuries can cause a learning disorder.
Dyslexia can sometimes result from a brain injury.
Some people have a genetic condition called dyslexia with brain injury (DBI).
This is a rare form of dyslexia that’s associated with a traumatic brain injury.
Other people with dyslexia can develop a problem called dyslexia after a brain injury.
If you’ve had a traumatic brain injury, it might be possible that it affected your development of the brain.
It’s also possible that your brain injury was mild and didn’t result in a learning disorder.
You might not have any dyslexia symptoms after a brain injury. But it’s possible that you might have other learning difficulties.
If you do develop dyslexia symptoms after a brain injury, it’s important to talk to a doctor. They can help you understand how to manage your symptoms.
Some medications can cause learning problems.
Some medications used to treat mental health conditions can also affect your ability to read and write.
Talk to your doctor to make sure that you’re taking the right medications and that they’re safe for you.
However, there’s no evidence that these medications are the cause of dyslexia.
You might also be born with a gene mutation that makes your brain more sensitive to the effects of certain medications.
If you’re taking medications and you’re having difficulty with reading and writing, it’s important to speak to a doctor.
You might be able to find a doctor in your area who specializes in dyslexia, or you can try to find one through the National Institute of Dyslexia and Stroke website.
What are the symptoms of dyslexia?
The symptoms of dyslexia depend on the type of dyslexia that you have.
Some people with dyslexia have a reading impairment. This means that they have trouble with reading.
These people also have problems with writing.
Some people with dyslexia have a spelling impairment.
They may have trouble with words that have more than one syllable. They might also have problems with letter recognition.
The bottom line
Dyslexia affects people differently, but everyone has some form of learning disability, and dyslexia is one of the most common.
If you think someone you know has dyslexia, it’s important to try to understand what’s happening. You can do this by talking to them about their reading.
You can also tell other people how to help people with dyslexia, whether that’s by reading to them or helping them with their homework.
