Dyslexia and Its Consequences on Nigerian Students

By Stanley Dilibe

Summary

Literacy is the crux of schooling. The primary motive of any average student is to acquire a competent reading and writing ability or skill. But unfortunately, many students found themselves to be struggling with what others found to be so easy and simple: they struggle with reading the alphabet, knowing it and being able to write it when the need arises. Thus, they see themselves as primitive fellows in a world of growing literacy.
Despite normal intelligence, many students assume themselves to be nothing but people with empty brain, unfit for the clarion call for literacy. They feel inferior, incompetent and unprivileged literary lovers. They develop low self esteem and if care is not taken, they get drowned into the slough of despond.

Abstract

Dyslexia, one of the prevalent teaching-learning problems, is conclusively an unfamiliar word in our environment especially in the Nigeria Educational Environment. The term is barely known by students and even teachers (lecturers). Thus, sufferers being ignorant of what is wrong with their learning ability tend to merge to the background and cloaked themselves in shame for lack of learning potentials.  Dyslexia is basically neurological and often hereditary. It effectuates difficulties in reading, writing, spelling and organization and makes easy reading difficult, which influences not only academic triumph but also self-esteem and social-emotional development. Sufferer is being subjected to extreme ridicules and abuses from parents, teachers (lecturers) and fellow peers who are oblivious of what the person is passing through in the neurological chain of words recognition and decoding. Consequently, this paper discusses dyslexia: features, theories, types and causes and its impact on Nigerian students.
