The diagnosis of dyslexia has turned out to be an important medical breakthrough for those individuals that experience slow learning and perception abilities. New Research has shed light on dyslexia and has lead to the development of techniques and theories that can help individuals suffering from this disorder.
 
Symptoms of dyslexia are sometimes difficult to recognize, but certain traits make its identification more obvious. A few common symptoms of dyslexia include phonological awareness, auditory short-term memory, and rapid naming syndrome. Other pertinent dyslexia symptoms include vision and hearing problems. In addition to this, one of the most common dyslexia symptoms that should raise alarm amongst parents is inadequate or poor reading abilities and an inability to follow instructions.
 
In recent years, there has been an increase in organizations that target dyslexia. Associations conduct research on dyslexia, help parents tackle the special needs of children, and counsel both the child suffering from dyslexia and their parents. These organizations have revealed that many children need their help. A few of these associations include Davis Dyslexia Associations, British Dyslexia Associations, and Maharashtra Dyslexia Association.
 
Apart from these associations, there are various sources of online training and information for dyslexia. These web sites help parents learn more about this disability. Various web sites that give online consultation for dyslexics are also available to help parents and dyslexic patients.

With the recent improvements and research in this area, testing of dyslexia through various techniques and methods has become easy as well as effective. These techniques have added to the identification of dyslexic symptoms and traits.
