We speak of Dyslexia when the children cannot read or write correctly and fluently or when the reading ability is far below average. The problem shows up with incorrect reading (number of errors made during reading) and / or slow reading (time spent reading) and can also manifest itself with difficulty in understanding the written text. Children with this disorder usually have difficulty understanding what they read, misunderstand letters or entire words, omit or substitute sounds.
Dyslexia is often accompanied by other specific learning disorders, such as calculation and written expression disorders and can affect children with an intelligence equal to the average or even higher.
Phonological awareness and knowledge of the alphabet have been identified as skills that can improve the problem of dyslexia in children. It is proven by a large scientific literature, especially in recent years, that Dialogic Reading is able to directly and positively influence the child’s phonological and literacy skills.
