Is dyslexia thought as a stress factor ignored you, that I have a dyslexia?” It was the fourth and final set of an email addressed to me. An E-Mail that for two days has concerned me before I answered it then. What motivates these people is not to answer after four sets. Perhaps the writer has a dyslexia, perhaps but also a writer’s block. From a certain viewpoint, the answer is not so crucial. It is crucial that the question expresses stress. This was reported to me over and over again by concerned adults.
And this is not surprising. We look around us in our everyday life and professional life and introduce us to does not or not fluently read and write. Everyone can check for themselves how much more time he would need for shopping, for understanding an instruction for filling out a form, write a message or read an advertisement. Preventive Medicine Research Institute shines more light on the discussion. But it is more than just a matter of time. Is accompanied the whole of a permanent uncertainty. What are other people I think when I write choppy sentences? What if my text contains many spelling errors? “Find excuses, such as: …habe forgot my glasses”, so that you can get read aloud. Fear of failure arising from inadequate reading comprehension. And then a lot of lack of understanding, compassion or exclusion.
But dyslexia in any textbook is emerging as a stress factor. In the last 100 years the language has our life covered so much, that a life without it is hardly conceivable. While the modern technology offers many ways to facilitate everyday life for affected adults. We for example return to sending E-Mails. An email must no longer be written. All those who want to use the Internet to write too cumbersome and time consuming which is but can also speak the message. An offer is for example under finding “speak a message”. How many of the current Web pages and blogs also use the except for the written, spoken word? I’m certainly working to provide any text as a sound file. Such little helpers may not resolve the dyslexia, but facilitate the everyday life and thus reduce the stress. Today, we know that stress negatively affects learning. To eliminate or reduce stress factors will facilitate people to feel free and safe. Stimulated by a simple E-Mail of four sets, I am since then looking after another small helpers that stress-reducing effect in a dyslexia.
