Dyslexia Questions and Dyslexia Answers
Dyslexia Questions and Dyslexia Answers are below. Most popular questions asked about Dyslexia and how it is like to read as a Dyslexic Reader. The inverted reading variations during reading are keys to understand.
Dyslexia Questions & Answers #1:
What do I do if my ‘parents’ don’t understand:
Answer: ‘Parents’ come in all sizes, shapes and attitudes. Some parents think that discipline will solve a dyslexic child’s tendencies and will subtract out of the child’s life things they are good at doing over attempting to get the child to spend more time doing what they are not good at in an effort to solve Dyslexia.
Best advice is to kindly as your parents to stop punishing you for being you and to switch as many courses in school to things that are of interest to you that you are capable of doing. Art Classes, Photography Classes, Cinema, Graphic Design, Acting classes instead of literature classes are advisable because they will give you an ability to do something that you are atleast partially good at.
Parents may have their own circumstances and not have the time to understand but this author has made materials available to try to allow parents to read in short articles what their child may be going through.
The Dyslexia Font will change the reading ability of Dyslexics if they use it which is something that is very significantly not what was available when parents were younger. You may be surprised that your parents may be partially dyslexic and have worked through some of it in their own way also.
Dyslexia Questions & Answers #2:
Why do Dyslexics See the Way they do?
Answer: Because there is a specific genius that is inside of them that constantly processes the things that they are witness to both in experience and in logical line of sight with their eyes.
This aspect of seeing enables them to not only see what is infront of them but to immediately engage anything that is similar to the same when an inverting or extraverting flipping takes place on an axis. As long as a Linear surface has a place of axis then they are capable of identifying the similarities.
When the similarities are identified the Dyslexic can often get the letters confused with one another because they are too similar in features than distinct. When the letters are distinct it is far less complicated to be able to read the sentence and the Dyslexic can remain in their dyslexic natural state and still be able to decipher the language of the words and letters because they are distinct from one another.
Distinct is the key feature that is needed that is able to allow the comfort of the lifestyle that the Dyslexic really needs to have to keep and utilize fully their own creativity.
Dyslexia Questions & Answers #3:
How Vital are Dyslexics in the Environment that we live in?
Seeing creative similarities and differences are the staple of a vibrant society. The diversity of those within society are the those that often help to continue to define and create the fabric of changes in society.
Dyslexics are often the innovators within their chosen professional fields and their diverse thinking really helps to cultivate cultural aspects of the professions that they are in. This goes into creative cultures as well as architecture, sketching and designing.
Dyslexia Questions & Answers #4:
What is it like to have Dyslexia?
It is exciting and exhilerating just like life is exciting and exhilerating. It is interesting to live with such a talented thing and it is unfortunate that dyslexia is so misunderstood.
Most of all I wish that those with Dyslexia and those who love and care for Dyslexics will get the memo that it is far more about the alphabet then people ever give it credit. The letters in some font cases are completely identical to some of the other letters when reversed.
Most people in the world don’t see how a Dyslexic see’s which is non-linearly.
Dyslexia Questions & Answers #5:
How does dyslexia Manifest with Chinese characters?
Most languages and cultures are affected by Dyslexia people and Dyslexia people live within each culture. It is harder to find a dyslexic in China then it is in America because Chinese alphabet is structured differently. Mongolian Alphabet does not have any repeating dyslexic letters in their alphabet yet still have 26 characters.
Most often Chinese students come to learn English and realize that they may be dyslexic at that time but the belief is really that they were dyslexic all along and just thought it was normal. IT is normal to have dyslexia. Over 10% of the population has Dyslexia.
Chinese characters that repeat themselves or have issues that are dyslexic repetitions within their alphabet if identical to one another when turned will be just as big of a problem for a Dyslexic in Chinese then it is in English. The reality is that the dyslexics are not the black sheep of civilization the way that societal jokes speak about but they are innovative people who care and love and want to contribute.
Dyslexia Questions & Answers #6:
What are the positive aspects of Dyslexia?
Dyslexia has many positive aspects. It is incredible the amount of creative thinking that Dyslexics are capable of being part of. It is incredible how intellectually funny or comical dyslexic perspectives can be. Jay Leno is a great example of a Dyslexic thinker and comedian.
The ability to be able to process in Non-Linear thinking processes is an incredible benefit to any group thinking project or group function. It is easier to be able to see different perspectives with and around those who are Dyslexic then some times when there are no Dyslexics around or in your group.
The positive aspects include and are not limited to creative abilities and differences in thinking patterns than some linear people are used to.
Instead of reading aspects, the Dyslexic may read asdects or aspects. That can easily lead to a jovial time with jokes about Pect muscles and how it relates to the subject. The Dyslexics are always taking in different perceptions to the world which is a great positive most of the time.
Dyslexia Questions & Answers #7:
Is Dyslexia a Learning Disability?
Dyslexia is a creative ability, not disability. It is the creative increase and a normal liveliness of the Dyslexic individual. There could be a disability to the Dyslexic if society forces stereotypes on them for being who they are. Many think of Dyslexia as a Disease incorrectly
The reading of the dyslexic can be assisted by the fonts they read the alphabet in as long as the font corrects the dyslexic functions. If the reading literature is in linear font patterns which mirror similar or exact alphabetical letters than that will cause a disability for the Dyslexic to read and comprehend their literature.
Being Dyslexic is not a disease of the mind or an ailment of the Dyslexic person. It is not a disability with the right tools to overcome some of the challenges. The key to being able to comprehend the Dyslexic dilemma is to understand that the actual person is not disabled and the alphabet and font really affects their ability to be able to read.
Dyslexia Questions & Answers #8:
What are “Dyslexic Functions” in the Alphabet?
Dyslexic Functions are characters in the alphabet. Each letter of the alphabet is a function in the literature we read. We need to be able to have distinct characters or Dyslexic functions in order to be able to read properly.
What a ‘Dyslexic Function’ is, is when the letter turns or twists in whole form if it forms another letter. Unfortunately the design of the alphabet creates identical interface of several letters including d, p, and b. N and U. And others.
This forces non-linear thinkers and readers into the confusion of which letters they are reading on the page and can in combination to other aspects of their non-linear and creative thinking can cause other confusions in literature when they read.
Check the “Dyslexic function” of your font that you are using and take each letter holding it up to light to see the inverted image or turning the letter around to see the different ways in which non-linear/ Dyslexics see. Then see if any of those letters are a close or identical match to any other alphabetical character or number.
Numbers Dyslexia a real thing because in some fonts a 3 can look like a near exact match to an E. Many dyslexics who are brilliant at Math at early on ages can often become mathematically illiterate because when they start algebra they cannot tell the difference between the exact font of the letters and the letters they match in the algebra equations.
Dyslexia Questions & Answers #9:
Is Dyslexia Hereditary?
Answer: Many people believe that Dyslexia is Hereditary but the reason why it is so hard to know for certain is that so few Dyslexics have come out of the Dyslexic Closets with their perception.
The testing for Dyslexia is not very effective at present and some newer solutions will likely be more helpful in deciphering who is Dyslexic and who is not Dyslexic. Many people, well over 15% of the population has some degree of Dyslexia. Others have Dyslexia and are considered highly functional in their careers or creative endeavors and never get ‘diagnosed’ as creative Dyslexics they are.
Hereditary Dyslexia is so difficult to actually diagnose that few people understand how to even approach trying to figure out the numbers and experiences in research.
Dyslexia Questions & Answers #10:
Is it possible for Dyslexia to get worse with age?
Answer: Many people get discouraged with time when it comes to their struggle with differentiating the alphabet during reading. Linear people who are not Dyslexic don’t comprehend often how difficult it is to have Dyslexia. Non-Linear Dyslexic Creatives are usually struggling to differentiate the letters that are in fact exactly the same as other letters in the same alphabet.
With age, Dyslexia and reading becomes harder to stay motivated while reading. Another factor that may not be spoken of by many is that change in font patterns which have changed to exact same letter formations as other letters in the alphabet which was not exactly like this 30 years ago. Some older people were more used to reading certain fonts do find it harder when they have to change from the font that they were used to struggling through to the newer fonts of the more modern era.
The change of adjusting to a new font with letters that are more stylized for design than function is often a added struggle to older Dyslexia folks.
Dyslexia Questions & Answers #11:
Are people with Dyslexia Just Lazy?
Answer: Short answer is No. Dyslexics are not ‘Just Lazy’. In fact Dyslexics usually work harder than others to stay at the same level as them. Dyslexics, even English as a Second Language Dyslexics are usually working harder to comprehend what they are reading
The Dyslexics are often very quick witted and often put in extra time. Many times the Dyslexic will comprehend the principles being discussed but not gain all of the details to the writings that they are reading and studying due to their Dyslexia.
Dyslexia Questions & Answers #12:
What are good ways to overcome Dyslexia for English as a Second language student?
Answer: Find what works for your english alphabet. Don’t think of the english alphabet as someone else’s, think of it as your own. Make the english alphabet your own alphabet that is able to be read and written by you.
Overcoming Dyslexia English as a Second language also has to take into consideration that languages syntax. When it comes to learning english the syntax is different than your original language. If you are aware that your languages logic is different than english it makes it easier to overcome your Dyslexia.
Dyslexia Questions & Answers #13:
Are people with Dyslexia smarter?
Answer: There are many more advantages to being Dyslexic than is given public credit. It is an advantage to be creative as well. Many Dyslexics are very creative people and out of the box thinkers. They will create things that no one else thought was possible and discover things that no one else was paying attention to.
Being an english as a second language student allows you to further yourself as a Dyslexic if you discover that you are one and take advantage of a new language after you make your corrections to the english alphabet the way you can read and write it.

Dyslexia Questions & Answers #14:
Do typefaces designed for Dyslexia work?
Answer: Typefaces for Dyslexics work for many Dyslexics but may work differently for different types of Dyslexics. Each Dyslexic has different tendencies. Some Dyslexics have tendencies to rotate the letter from left to right or right to left. Some Dyslexics have tendencies to rotate vertically from top to bottom or bottom to top. Some Dyslexics do both to all letters they read. Others only are affected by particular letters.
The answer of Typeface lies in the reality of how well the different and unique letters are formed and allowed to be read and written by the Dyslexic. If each alphabetical letter in the typeface is unique from another when each letter is turned or vertically rotated from top to bottom than you likely have a typeface that could work for all types and the majority of Dyslexics.
Each Typeface takes time to get used to by the Dyslexic and it will take some time to realize the affects of the typeface with reading time. Some adult Dyslexics know how to read but read slowly than non-Dyslexics. They could find that their reading speeds increase with a Dyslexic Font or Dyslexic Typeface.
When dealing with typeface it is important to pick the typeface and try out several types because the Dyslexic may need to discover which typeface can be more effective with them and which is less affective. A dyslexic that sees things more horizontally flipped then vertically flipped will be better with typefaces that are more designed for horizontal Dyslexia than vertical Dyslexia.
Dyslexia Questions & Answers #15:
Why do so many ‘smart people’ have Dyslexia?
Dyslexia is a functioning of decoding the similar lettered alphabetical letters and gaining the message from the ill english alphabet. It could only take a smart person to overcome the decoding of letter combinations that literally repeat each other sometimes every few letters or sometimes every 20 letters while reading.
The way that the Dyslexic sees is the key to why they have so many ingenious ideas and concepts. They see the world in reverse, altered or inverted ways and angles that are considerations that are non-linear in function.
Non-linear Dyalexics are functioning at a very high level of intelligence. Creative people who consider the world upside down and rightside up often are the ones that invent or create things that others have not thought of or have never considered the function of. Dyslexia people have the ability to see the world right side up and upside down as a common everyday thing in their own lives. Some are only a percentage of Dyslexia and others are full 100% Dyslexia people.
Dyslexia Questions & Answers #16:
Did Nikola Tesla have Dyslexia?
Answer: Yes, it has been said that Nikola Tesla had Dyslexia. Dyslexia is usually the permanent condition of rotating and reversing, mirroring and flipping letters in the alphabet and also concepts and perceptions. It is incredible the perspective that a person can obtain when they are Dyslexic.
Nikola Tesla had inverted concepts and was an out of the box thinker who was able to create and process ideas in unique ways. It is very interesting that he was capable of achieving so much that we do know and much more than we do not know inventions, concepts and practical thinking.
If you look at people who are dyslexic. You will discover thinkers who are capable of reversing concepts in non-linear ways. In many ways it is advantageous to be a non-linear thinker. Some Dyslexics, like Nikola Tesla can create things by inverting more regular concepts to create new things. For instance, grounding the electricity a certain way allowed Tesla to play with and create energy field that could send electricity through the air. This is a non-linear thinking method of processing.
Nikola Tesla was able to reverse number patterns in mathematical equations and invert english logic patterns in science. Some say that his reverse number patterns were energy producing mathematics which not only could contain energy like batteries but also gain energy field strengths. This is not normally done by someone who is a non-dyslexic.
Dyslexia Questions & Answers #17:
Is Dyslexia homogenous or should it be split into several dyslexic types?
Answer: At the minimum there is horizontal Dyslexia and vertical Dyslexia. Many people believe that there could be more than two types of Dyslexia and that it is not homogenous.
Full Dyslexia would be considered to be fully horizontal and fully vertical in nature and the Dyslexic would be affected Dyslexically in both horizontal and vertical ways. Each letter could have a flip inverting or exverting on the horizontal basis. Each letter vertically could mirror image rotating vertically or flipping vertically to create the dys, Dyslexia condition in a vertical angle.
Many people have Dyslexia in partial ways and with partial mindset to the perspective in Dyslexia. Some only have symptoms of Dyslexia with certain letters, yet not with other letters. Some only have symptoms of Dyslexia with certain numbers looking like certain letters reversed imaged. 3 and E are reverse letter combinations that Number Dyslexics often work with when they are Dyslexic.
It is important that numbers and letters are uniquely formed characters so that the Capital E does not look in font type to the 3 and visa versa.
Question: Why can Dyslexics read and write blogs?
Dyslexics can read most often when they can decipher the text into comprehension, then memorize the comprehensions meaning. Dyslexics can be proficient readers and writers in many cases, just like Foreign english as a second language students can be proficient even though their first language was not english.
It is easier for both the foreign language student or english as a second language student to learn english if the english alphabet has actually distinct alphabetical letters. Additionally, it is easier for a Dyslexic reader and writer to write and read blogs when the alphabet is distinct and the alphabetical letters are distinct from one another.
If the typeface of the Dyslexic reader is actually a Dyslexic proof font they will be able to have an easier time working with the english alphabet because the english alphabet will be easier. The easier and more distinct the letters are the easier the foreigner will also be able to read the english.
There is a great reason why many Dyslexics are only found to be Dyslexic when using the english alphabet but when using other foreign languages their Dyslexia is not an issue or even a topic of discovery.
Dyslexia Questions & Answers #18:
Do people with Dyslexia struggle with sign language?
Answer: Learning sign language is a different even to a Dyslexic than learning how to sign in sign language. Dyslexia is a reading literacy issue yet the question of if a Dyslexia person struggles with sign language is a great question.
It is often that a Dyslexic person will see the world in many different ways when they are Dyslexic. Often times there is reverse imaging that can occur to the Dyslexic when they are visual. Yet the Kinetic componant of learning usually helps the Dyslexic to overcome any difference between themselves and a non-Dyslexic.
Let’s look at sign language and understand that the sign language alphabet has few faults of similar alphabetical letters. The english alphabet is full of repeating letters that when turned look identical to each other yet the sign language alphabet is unique in each letter or at least as a motion of difference to each of the different letters.
Having distinction within the alphabet makes the sign language alphabet clearer in understanding than the english alphabet on a page. It is important to understand that although a Dyslexic may see things in reverse on a page that does not mean that they see things in reverse in life without knowing the difference of direction that things are going in.
In life things are full of movement and the movement for a Dyslexic is a key to not misunderstanding what is completely still on a page. The stillness of the page is what creates the confusion that life is not bringing to the Dyslexic.
Dyslexia Questions & Answers #19:
What is the difference between mild Dyslexia and severe Dyslexia?
Let us all understand that 10 – 15% of the world has Dyslexia. There are several varying degrees of Dyslexia. The english language because of the way that the alphabet is constructed repeats letters to those who are creative enough to read the letters in reverse or mirrored form.
The Difference between a mild Dyslexic and a severe Dyslexic is how often during their reading process letters reverse or flip as they are reading. Many people who are Dyslexic with the alphabet are not dsylexic for with numbers and many people who are Dyslexic with numbers are not Dyslexic with the alphabet.
For instance, some Dyslexics only have significant Dyslexia on the letters d, p and b lower case. They may also have Dyslexia on u and n, lower case.
Other Dyslexics will revert and invert all the letters of the alphabet and are severely Dyslexic. They will see a backwards lower case e and a lower case k backwards, which they will have no problem reading because those two characters are unique alphabetical letters to the english alphabet.
The severity of the Dyslexia is always pending upon the functionality that the Dyslexic is capable of. It is not enough to know that a person while reading has letters invert or flip to consider them severely Dyslexic, it is a matter of how they are capable or not of functioning.
Often times Dyslexics are slow to learn writing and reading yet are capable readers and writers.
Dyslexia Questions & Answers #20:
Is there such thing as Math Dyslexia?
Yes, there is such thing as Math Dyslexia. Math Dyslexia is also called Numbers Dyslexia. A 3 and a capital E are both similar pending upon the font they are presented in. If you reverse the 3 invertedly you will get the basic or exact shape of the E.
If you take the number 6 and upside down it, you will get a 9. This is a numbers or Math Dyslexia issue where the number flips vertically changing the mathetical equation in the process.
Many Dyslexics while they are still learning to read with Dyslexia will at a stage flip numbers around completely with each other as the long stems of some numbers will look like starts to other numbers or other variations of.
The number 5 and the number 2 are complete inverts if the Digital font number scale is used like a Digital alarm clock. Other Dyslexics may be alphabetically Dyslexic but the numbers are very smooth for them to use without any issues.
The name for Numbers Dyslexia is Dyscalculia.
Dyslexia Questions & Answers #21:
What are the Treatments for Dyslexia?
Answer: There are unfortunately treatments for Dyslexia that are Pharmaceutical and very experimental. It is an unfortunate thing that Dyslexia is thought of by society as a dis-easement that needs medication in order to control.
It is highly recommended not to take drugs when you are dyslexic as in most cases as they can cause more difficulty in consentration than the Dyslexic has before taking them. There is no medical advice offered in this answer but the reality is that having Dyslexia is a skillset that many do not have and taking drugs to destroy who you are and the gifts that you were born with is a frightful proposition.
Dyslexia’s perception with society is really interesting because society wants the inventions that Dyslexics offer to it yet there is a threat to Dyslexics to state exactly what they see and experience when being themselves while reading. There are all kinds of Linear doctors who want to prescribe solutions and try out experimentational medications to control the dyslexic mind yet there is a lot more danger than is being disclosed when testing with treatments are being considered.
Dyslexics function best when their perceptions are received by society in a way that can be contributions. It is very sad when threatening treatments are given to Dyslexic children who are being honest about what they see yet are not given a choice to explore what they see and how they are different and unique from others.
Dyslexia Questions & Answers #22:
Is there a correlation between left handedness and Dyslexia?
Answer: You will often be told that left handed people have creative tendencies. Many people who know that Dyslexics are creative assume that they are also left handed. Dyslexics are both right and left handed individuals. They have varying degrees of Dyslexia and sometime are capable of writing with both hands or drawing with one hand and writing with another.
Dyslexics do not need to be left handed in order to be Dyslexic and in order to be creative.
Dyslexia Questions & Answers #23:
What is the difference between Autism and Dyslexia?
Answer: There could be Autistic children who are also have Dyslexia. Autism is an expressive disorder which involves delayed speech and communication issues. Dyslexia is not a disorder but is unfortunately rumored in society to be a disease, which it is not.
If Dyslexia is guilting of being any kind of disorder than it is a creative disorder. Where a person who has Dyslexia is struggling with their abilities to see the world in non-linear fashions. Autism however is a condition that is a struggle in communication.
Dyslexia Questions & Answers #24:
Why are so many CEO’s Dyslexic?
Answer: Many CEO’s are Dyslexic because the Dyslexic mind is capable of memorizing and handling many different factors at once. CEO’s need to be able to have keen and sharp mind and skillsets that allow them to identify with their staff and staff departments. It is vital to the organization that creative input is consistently being inputted into the company. It is important that the company does not go stagnant.
Many of the highest Mensa participants are Dyslexic. Many CEO’s are part of the Mensa group.
Each company regardless of size needs a CEO leader that is capable of creative discussions with each department and creative advertising which can be creative yet tie into realities in the world. It is a facinating thing that so many CEO’s are dyslexic and successful within their positions.
Dyslexia Questions & Answers #25:
What are the best Tests for Dyslexia?
Answer: There are all kinds of tests for Dyslexia but many of them are humiliating to the Dyslexic student or Adult Dyslexic. The reality of Dyslexia is that is not a Dis-easement. It is not an uncomfortable thing to live with and in fact it can be a very creative condition to live in.
The Best testing for Dyslexia the accepting of Dyslexia. Many times a Dyslexic knows that they are dyslexic and yet they are unable to express it because of the social stereotypes. Testing Dyslexia is a very difficult thing to do and this is why there are so many test and so many different solutions for diagnosis of Dyslexia.
If the person tends to read upside down without difficulty or writes there letters reverse or upside down they likely have some degree of Dyslexia. If the person reads and then rereads the same sentence and each time they read it they read it as a slightly different sentence then they are likely some degree of Dyslexia.
If the person reads perry, instead of berry they are likely Dyslexic. The test of reading outload is a test by itself for Dyslexia. Many Dyslexics will not read well outload or if they have to keep a certain rhythm or speed to their reading. Many Dyslexics will also write inverted letters if they are needing to write with any quick speed.
The largest mistake in discovering Dyslexia is when the reading of the words are alphabetically difficult and yet the Dyslexic is ‘caught’ with Phonetics issues. Often times the phonetics mistakes that the Dyslexic incurs is because the reverse lettering of the alphabet.
Dyslexia Questions & Answers #26:
What are the Practical ways to help a child with Dyslexia?
Answer: Allow the child to be who they are in all of their splender. Allow the Adult Dyslexic to be who they are in all of their splender. If splender, looks like sdlenper, have fun with it. Start speaking with a german accent and start to understand that people in life are different and unique. It is not the Dyslexics fault that the english alphabet’s letters can invert so easily to make completely different words and meanings.
Allowing the Dyslexic child to have fun with the different reverse lettering will gift the child comfort that they need to actually understand the Alphabetical Dyslexia Dilemma.
If the child see’s all the different angles of an object and considers all possibilities the people around them would consider them smart. Yet, when the Dyslexic child considers all the alphabetical possibilities to letters they are often yelled at and made fun of by their peers. Remember that peers and beers looks identical to the Dyslexic reader. The Dyslexic reader, and reaper are also similar.
If we have fun with the different combinations of letters and how they can invert than we can all take our guards down about how ridiculous the education system is in calling Dyslexics Diseased. Education is also Epucation in reverse Dyslexic lettering.
Dyslexia Questions & Answers #27:
Why are there so many people with Dyslexia?
Answer: There are an enormous amount of people that have Dyslexia. Roughly 10% of the population is Dyslexic and as much as 25% have partial Dyslexia. Many people creatively flip letters during reading and read differently than what is actually in print on a regular basis.
Many different professions and walks of life read differently that what is actually in print.
Creative thinking is never going to stop being part of society and Dyslexics are never going to stop being part of society. The major thing that makes the amount of Dyslexics seem so odd is the lie that Dyslexia is a Disease. Dyslexics life full and complete lives with curious interests in non-linear ways and fascinations of how life functions on a regular basis.
