Dyslexia


Dyslexia is a learning difficulty which affects how the brain processes information. It can negatively impact an individual’s ability to read, write and organise. Concept Northern help people overcome this learning barrier through technology, training and support.

Dyslexia occurs across the full range of intellectual abilities and is best though of as a continuum, rather than a distinct category. It affects different people in different ways.

Other difficulties like dyspraxia or dyscalculia often occur alongside dyslexia. This can complicate assessment, diagnosis and intervention methods.

Key Characteristics
  • Difficulties with phonological awareness
  • Problems with verbal processing speed
  • Reading and writing challenges
  • Trouble memorising information
  • Poor time and task management

Dyslexia has its challenges but it’s important not to see it only in negative terms. Individuals with dyslexia are often creative, problem-solvers, and have excellent reasoning skills.
