Why Schools Struggle to Help Children with Dyslexia

By staff reporter Sheng Menglu

Over 10 million children in elementary schools across the country have dyslexia, researchers have found, and they do not get timely support because their troubles are ignored or misunderstood.

Some have difficulty coordinating their movements or suffer from poor motor skills. Therefore, some youngsters might struggle to hold a pen or pencil for too long and have sloppy handwriting.
