Dyslexia is a common specific learning difficulty which affects one’s ability to read, with an estimate of 10% individuals with the condition around the globe. That’s ~ 790,000,000 people.
There is little to no research conducted on how Dyslexia manifests itself in Urdu, a language spoken by 60 to 80 million people in the world. Unsurprisingly, no standardized Dyslexia remedial therapies exist in Urdu either.
Why for Primary school-going children?
According to research, early intervention of Dyslexia is known to be effective for most individuals. That is, after diagnosis, the earlier the therapy is provided, the faster the child can improve their reading skills.
