Don’t frown at your children if they have problem in spelling a word or difficulty in grasping a concept quickly.

They may be suffering from DYSLEXIA, said Prof. Sumant Majmudar at a multi-disciplinary seminar on dyslexia at Kanoria Centre for Medical Education and Research.

As many as 175 participants, including psychologists, students and teachers from across the city took part in the multi-disciplinary seminar.

All that such children need is an enabling environment, for dyslexia is just a disorder, not a disease, said experts.

The rate of dyslexia in USA is 4 per cent while it is around 10 per cent in India. Reading writing and mathematical disorders are included in dyslexia.

The seminar where such problems were discussed was held by KCMER faculty Rajul Malik.

The centre runs postgraduate courses like in applied clinical counseling and psychotherapy, certificate course in educational counseling and parental counseling
