Late developed dyslexia

Some children, especially those with dyslexia, may have difficulty learning language. This is called late-developing dyslexia.

Some children with dyslexia may not have any difficulty learning the words and letters of the English language, but they do struggle with decoding and writing. This is more common in children with dyslexia who also have a high level of reading difficulty.

Dyscalculia

Dyscalculia is a form of learning disability. It affects the way a person learns to add and subtract. People with dyscalculia may sometimes have difficulty learning math because of a lack of processing speed or a lack of ability to make accurate calculations.

Some people with dyscalculia have difficulties learning how to calculate the prices of certain items. For example, they may calculate the price of a gallon of milk and a gallon of gas, but not the prices of two gallons of milk and two gallons of gas.

Some people with dyscalculia may be able to do math very easily, but they may also be unable to do math correctly. For example, they may take the number 11 and divide it by 2, but not by 5.

Some people with dyscalculia may not have any difficulty learning how to add and subtract numbers. However, they may have problems learning to do math correctly. These problems may include the following:

  • Not knowing how to do mental math
  • Using more than one number for the same problem
  • Using the wrong number for a problem
  • Forgetting the steps for a problem
  • Not understanding the steps for a problem
  • Using the wrong method to solve a problem
  • Using the wrong numbers for a problem
  • Not understanding the steps for solving a problem

Other disabilities

Other types of disabilities may also affect a person’s ability to learn and remember. For example, some people with autism may have trouble learning how to read and write.

Some people with dyslexia may also have another disability called attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). They may have a disorder called dysgraphia.

In addition, some people with autism may have trouble learning to read and write.

How is a person diagnosed?

A doctor can usually diagnose dyslexia or other disabilities. They may also be able to diagnose autism. However, sometimes a doctor may be able to diagnose a disability only after the person has been diagnosed with a different condition.

If a doctor suspects that a person has dyslexia, they may want to do a physical exam. They may also want to do an IQ test. A doctor may also want to do a psychological evaluation.

A doctor may also want to do a brain scan to look at the brain. This is to see if there is a problem with the brain. This will help the doctor to make a diagnosis.

How is a person treated?

A doctor may treat a person with a disability by using different strategies. For example, a doctor may:

  • Help the person with the disability remember things.
  • Help the person with the disability learn strategies to help them remember things.
  • Help the person with the disability learn how to manage their disability.

A doctor may also treat a person with a disability by making changes to their classroom or school environment.

What is the long-term outlook?

People with dyslexia or other disabilities may be able to learn to read and write normally. However, some people with dyslexia or other disabilities may not be able to learn to read and write normally.

If a person has a disability, they may still have a normal life and work. They may also have a normal social life. However, people with a disability may not be able to do the things that other people do. For example, they may not be able to:

  • Speech disabilities. For example, they may have trouble understanding people and not being able to talk much.

People with a disability may also have a higher risk for certain health problems. This is because their disability affects their brain. In addition, their disability may make them more likely to have certain health problems. For example, this may include:

  • Depression
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Obesity

How can a person learn to manage their disability?

A person with a disability may learn to manage their disability by:

Can a person with a disability overcome their disability?

It is possible for a person with a disability to overcome their disability. However, this may take a long time.

A person may be able to overcome their disability by:

  • Teaching themselves how to use their senses. For example, they may learn to control their tongue so that they don’t damage their mouth.
