Because most learning takes place through spoken communication, whether in the classroom, on the playground, or at home, speech and language problems can interfere with many aspects of a child’s learning and development. A learning disability is a neurobiological disorder that affects the way that children of average to above average intelligence receive, process, and/or express information. Learning disabilities can be inherited and they affect girls just as frequently as they do boys. This was a very informative article.

Here's a great checklist for common warning signs of dyslexia. 

 

Common Signs of Dyslexia
By: International Dyslexia Association
Dyslexia is a language-based disability that affects both oral and written language. With help, children with dyslexia can become successful readers. Find out the warning signs for dyslexia that preschool and elementary school children might display.
Facts about dyslexia
Startling facts about dyslexia and related language-based learning disabilities:
Fifteen to twenty percent of the population has a reading disability.
Of students with specific learning disabilities who receive special education services, seventy to eighty percent have deficits in reading. Dyslexia is the most common cause of reading, writing and spelling difficulties.
If children who are dyslexic get effective phonological training in kindergarten and first grade, they will have significantly fewer problems in learning to read at grade level than do children who are not identified or helped until third grade.
Seventy four percent of the children who were poor readers in the third grade remained poor readers in the ninth grade. This means that they couldn’t read well when they became adults.
Individuals inherit the genetic links for dyslexia.
Dyslexia affects males and females nearly equally, and people from different ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds as well.

Defeat dyslexia by catching it early - Parents Express - Montgomery News

Defeat dyslexia by catching it early - Parents Express - Montgomery News | Language learning disabilities | Scoop.it
According to the National Institutes of Health, it’s estimated that 15 to 20 percent of the population, or one out of every five students, has a language-based learning disability. The most common of these disabilities is dyslexia, a neurological disorder that results in difficulties with language skills such as reading, writing, spelling or word pronunciation.

 

Contrary to popular belief, people with dyslexia do not always reverse letters or read words backwards, although letters may appear transposed or closer together for individuals with dyslexia. The disorder is considered a language-based learning disability because dyslexia can make it very difficult for a student to succeed academically in the typical school environment.

 

The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) reports that approximately 38 percent of fourth grade students have “below basic” reading skills. These students are below the 40th percentile (performing below the other 60 percent of their peers) and are at greater than 50 percent chance of failing school achievement tests. Yet, to a large extent, about three quarters of children who show primary difficulties with basic reading skills early in reading development can be helped to overcome those difficulties.

“Early recognition of language-based learning problems is the key to effectively addressing these issues,” says Eugenie Flaherty, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist and past president of the PBIDA. Parents are often the first line of defense in recognizing any problems their child may be having with speech, pronunciation, recognizing letters and numbers, listening skills, and the like.
