ABILITY TO VISUALLY RECOGNIZE AND REMEMBER A WORD OR SYMBOL
Does your child study a word many times before she can visually memorize it, recognize it, and then say it correctly the next time she sees it?
Often children and adults with this dysfunction cannot recognize a word like “house” as the same word she has seen before. The result: learning to read and spell words is a very slow process.
Children and adults with this dysfunction oftentimes have an inability to read an analog clock; to discern the difference between the hour and minute hands. They have trouble with cause and effect relationships like why events happen.
Grammar and reading comprehension suffer because the relationships between elements or characters are not understood. For many with this dysfunction, there is a constant sense of uncertainty about whether the intended meaning (while reading or listening) has been correctly understood.
