Assistive Technology for Learning Disabilities like Dyslexia, Attention Deficit Disorder or Slow Learners or those with Reading & Writing Difficulties
Dyslexia is a specific learning difficulty that mainly affects reading and spelling. Dyslexia is characterized by difficulties in processing word-sounds and by weaknesses in short-term verbal memory; its effects may be seen in spoken language as well as written language. The current evidence suggests that these difficulties arise from inefficiencies in language-processing areas in the left hemisphere of the brain which, in turn, appear to be linked to genetic differences.
Dyslexia is life-long, but its effects can be minimised by targeted literacy intervention, technological support and adaptations to ways of working and learning. Dyslexia is not related to intelligence, race or social background.
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) is a reduced ability to concentrate and focus on a specific task, an increased chance of distraction, and reduction in memory capability.
A Slow Learner is not a diagnostic category, it is a term used to describe a student who has the ability to learn necessary academic skills, but at rate and depth below average same age peers. In order to grasp new concepts, a slow learner needs more time, more repetition, and often more resources from teachers to be successful. Reasoning skills are typically delayed, which makes new concepts difficult to learn.
Using Assistive Technology even persons who have learning disabilities like Dyslexia or slow learners can learn to read, write and study and even excel academically.
History has shown that there have been many famous persons like Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Tom Cruise, Agatha Christie, etc. who in spite of having Dyslexia have succeeded in life and in fact proved their supremacy over others with their contribution to society.
