PHONOLOGICAL: Dr. Julie Wilson, explained the medical aspects of dyslexia, how it manifests and why it causes difficulty with reading. She said that when children with dyslexia read a word different parts in their brain are activated instead of just one. This is why many students with dyslexia dislike reading because it take more work to understand each word.
