How Does Dyslexia Progress?
When dyslexia goes undiagnosed and untreated, difficulties with language processing can interfere in many other areas of learning, leading to escalating and long-lasting developmental and social problems.
Long-term complications of dyslexia can include:
- Broad learning difficulties. When a child has trouble reading, he or she is likely to have trouble with most other academic pursuits.
- Social difficulties. Problems with learning can have a negative impact on other aspects of a child’s life, too. If the child lags behind his or her peers academically, he or she can be vulnerable to depression, anxiety, bullying, and social isolation.
- Life-long consequences. Language-processing struggles can impact adults, too. Learning difficulties can hinder an adult’s career prospects, and ongoing language problems can get in the way of job performance. The result can be long-term financial and social challenges.
