This week we have a contri-
bution from the founder
and chairman of the Dyslexia
Association, Cathryn Kelshall on
What is it, dyslexia? No, not
lack of intelligence! No, not funny
eyesight! No, not laziness!
It is a specific difficulty with
acquiring any of the language skills
of speaking, reading, spelling and
writing despite adequate intelligence
and opportunity to learn. Dyslexia
affects ten to 15 per cent of the
population. This means that there
are between 100,000 to 150,000
dyslexics in Trinidad and Tobago.
Dyslexic students can be
described as the "puzzle children."
These are the children in the class
who know the answers, often excel
in mathematics and other areas of
the curriculum like science, but
just can t get it on to paper, their
reading skills are poor. These chil-
dren often get labelled as lazy.
One dyslexic ten-year-old stu-
dent poignantly described it to me
like this; "For some people reading
is like a feather, for me it is a ton."
Research has shown that the
dyslexic s brain is actually different.
In addition, recent brain scans
show that dyslexics use different
areas of the brain to process lan-
guage, areas that are perhaps not
ideally suited to those skills.
On the plus side, many dyslexics
have extraordinary talent for archi-
tecture, engineering and the visual
arts. Because they are good at see-
ing how many parts fit into a
whole, dyslexics make talented
entrepreneurs and surgeons.
It certainly takes a great deal of
ability to manoeuvre through a
school system that just isn t geared
to this different way of learning,
and it s not surprising that many
dyslexics drop out of school. This
spiral of failure can lead to disas-
The students who make it report
a great deal of support from par-
ents and teachers who believe in
Teachers can see through the
spelling mistakes to the creative
ideas, they provide other ways to
excel such as illustrating the lit-
erature text, or dramatising it.
Teachers should recognise that
many students need to discover,
and feel, and do, in order to learn.
Dyslexic students who survive
the school system learn persistence
Dyslexia is hereditary. You don t want
to be paranoid but early detection,
which results in early intervention, can
prevent frustration and loss of self
esteem. Some early indications are:
• Late speech acquisition or jumbled
words like "hostipal" for hospital.
• Difficulty with rhyming and learn-
ing common sequences, like the alpha-
bet may clue you in that your child is
• A seemingly bright child taking
much longer to learn the letters than
the other children in the class.
• Taking longer than normal to learn
to tie laces or poor hand eye co-ordi-
nation like catching a ball.
• Difficulty with directional labels
such as before and after, left and right.
• From seven on still having difficulty
with reversing letters and numbers.

family, contact: The Dyslexia Asso-
ciation. Tel: (868)-625-5869
The Association provides screening
and tutoring for dyslexic children
Dyslexic students can be described as the "puzzle children." These are the
children in the class who know the answers, often excel in mathematics and
other areas of the curriculum like science, but just can't get it on to paper.
