It is language-based and makes learning to read, spell, decode, and recognize words challenging. As a result, reading comprehension, vocabulary, and general knowledge is reduced compared to other children the same age who do not have dyslexia.

It was almost inevitable that my child would be diagnosed with ADHD. However, it was clear in kindergarten that he was also struggling with something else. She felt he was paying attention, but could not read words at his age level and intellectual capacity. After a full neuropsychological assessment, before beginning first grade, it was discovered that he was also severely dyslexic. About 50 to 60 percent of people with ADHD also have a learning disability.

Is this due to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder ADHD? Or dyslexia? Or a dizzying combination of both? ADHD and dyslexia can co-exist. They get tired, frustrated, and distracted when they try to read. They may even act out or refuse to read.
