One of the most popular dyslexia symptoms is the problems with reading. Reading and comprehension are two nightmares for the patients as it is impossible to ignore the importance of these functions when studying at school or even kindergarten. Students with this problem read very slow, sometimes getting stuck due to the inability to spell some words. It is difficult for them to read aloud. Extra assistance may help these patients.

Most of the people with dyslexia report significant listening/hearing problems. It does not necessarily mean they are going deaf. In some cases, these patients cannot differentiate words and understand exactly what other people are saying. They just cannot analyze what they have just heard, and people around usually have to repeat the same information several times. Thus, it is hard for the patients to handle various assignments.
