Attention! Hyperactivitiy disorder may be accompanying hidden dyslexia…

Dyslexia is a learning disability that negatively affects the individual's functions in areas such as reading, writing and mathematics. This situation creates difficulty in processing information in the mind and remembering it and causes the literacy skills to be acquired more slowly than their peers. The effects of dyslexia, which is one of the most common learning disorders in the world and in our country, can be minimized. Starting from childhood, children can be like their peers with their parents' awareness and analytical approach.

Dyslexia is not a permanent learning disability on its own, it can cause Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), which affects the mind!

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a condition in which children are unusually active or active at an abnormal level, although it is more common especially at younger ages.

A child with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD):

  • May have difficulty in paying attention to a situation, lesson or person.
  • May have difficulty standing still.
  • They may encounter difficulties in their school life and family life caused by these situations.
  • He may have difficulty making friends compared to his age.
  • They have almost no concentration compared to their peers, they do not react to events like their peers.
  • Forgetfulness and inability to finish the job can be seen.
  • He may lose his belongings frequently.
  • May be prone to aggressive, impulsive behavior.
  • Because he does something without thinking about the consequences, he may be open to accidents and injuries.

Just as a child with dyslexia has difficulties in reading and writing, has difficulty in calculating, has difficulty in drawing pictures, has difficulty in paying attention, has forgetfulness, and exhibits a slower progressing profile than his peers, a child with ADHD may show the same characteristics as a child with dyslexia. Therefore, they are too similar to be indistinguishable at some points. In this case, they can easily become each other's secret companions. This is a similarity that can be difficult to distinguish without professional help because the symptoms are so close.

For example; you get help with the suspicion that your child has ADHD. You attribute your child's focusing problems and learning difficulties to having ADHD. However, your child may be a dyslexic individual. All the consequences of having ADHD may have occurred as a result of having dyslexia.

For this reason, the importance of diagnosis in the training phase is very important. The education given to the child by making a wrong diagnosis will never give the person the right result fully and may cause the current situation to worsen. On the other hand, education started with a correct diagnosis will meet the needs of the child and support him in the most efficient way.
