by | Jun 14, 2024 | ETS Instructors

Dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia are neurologically-based learning differences that affect specific areas of academic functioning. Dyslexia primarily impacts reading and language processing, making it difficult to decode words, spell accurately, and comprehend written text. Dysgraphia affects writing abilities, causing challenges with handwriting, spelling, and organizing thoughts on paper. Dyscalculia affects mathematical reasoning and calculation, making it hard to understand numbers, grasp mathematical concepts, and solve problems. While each presents unique hurdles, individuals with these learning differences often possess exceptional strengths in other areas, such as creativity, problem-solving, and critical thinking.
