Default Adult onset dyslexia (dyslexia)


Is there such a thing as adult onset dyslexia?

I am a 51 year old man who has always been very literate and an
excellent speller.

Over the past couple of years, I notice that I am making an increasing
number of spelling and grammatical errors.

Is this a symptom of dyslexia? What should I do?

Erm, no. Theories on the origins of Dyslexia differ, but even in those
theories where it is not present at birth, it is developed within the very
early years of childhood. There are any number of various things that could
be causing your problems.
There are however instances of dyslexic and dysgraphic symptoms
appearing after brain injury. If you're at risk for a stroke or if you have
taken a good blow to the head prior to these problems appearing, that could
be the cause.
A number of other things that effect your brain could be causing it too,
including various diseases and medications.
Or it could just be that you're out of practice. Like any learned skill,
spelling and grammar tend to get worse when you aren't frequently using
them. If you spent a large period of time without doing any major writing
you've probably just fallen out of practice and now you need to relearn
those skills.
If you have been writing frequently and you think that these problems
are just suddenly occurring then you should go see a medical doctor and have
some tests done, including a cat scan. You could have have had very small
strokes, or be suffering from internal bleeding in your head, or brain
cancer, or a lot of other serious things. Or it could be something very
small like the medication you're on is effecting you badly or you're getting
forgetful in your old age.

It can also be cerebellar vestibular dysfunction too. That's inner ear
problems. Those problems can cause Dyslexic,Dyspraxic,and/or ADHD
symptoms as well as sensory integration issues. I was diagnosed as
having a cerebellar vestibular dysfunction last year. I have a history
of Auditory/Phonological Dyslexia and Dyspraxia,and I was diagnosed as
having inattentive type ADHD in 2004.

Have you had any problems with ear infections. If so, then you're at
increased risk of getting cerebellar vestibular dysfunction.

Many children develop Dyslexia after getting ear infections or glue ear.

cerebellar vestibular dysfunction does not apper to exist outside the
world of Harold Levinson try googleing it, you get nothing other than
stuff directly about dyslexia. this is in contrast to googleing glue
ear for example which has many sites linking dyslexia to glue ear but
glue ear is talked about in it's own right. if cerebellar vestibular
dysfunction only exists as a cause of dyslexia then isn't it like
saying the cause of dyslexia causes dyslexia?

children who have difficulties hearing when the phonological
prossessing part of their brain is diveloping due to glue ear, repeated
ear infections or any other type of uncorected hearing difficulties are
considered at great risk of developing reading problems. but if this
part of the brain is already formed i cant see how ear problems will
then effect it and have not read anything to suggest it might

Gemma,

That's bullcrap! You don't know what you are talking about!

Cerebellar vestibular dysfunction does exist outside the world of Dr.
Levinson

Default Adult onset dyslexia (dyslexia neuropathy down eye)


Another thing.

A lot of Dyslexics have Dyspraxia and/or sensory integration.
They often have problems with balance and coordination, and that's the
problems that I had as a kid. I was taken to see a neurologist because
of those problems as a kid,and he ruled out brain damage. The ear is
not just for hearing. It is also for equilibrium. Anybody who had
anatomy class knows that. Of course, if there is problems with ears,
there can be problems with balance and coordination. Also there is
studies that show that a lot of Dyslexics do have have cerebellar
problems.

I wish people would really do some research before putting out false
information. Ted Rosenberg did the same crap when he said that
Dyslexics don't have speech problems when a lot do and even said that
people who have speech problems and had problems reading are mentally
retarded. Ignorant crap like that pisses me off. Speech problems can
symptoms of Dyslexia,Dyspraxia,and Autism. My speech problems were from
Dyslexia. The specialists told my mom that when I was 4 yrs old. They
told her that it had to do with me turning stuff around when I heard
it,and that people had to slow down talking to me too.

Auditory processing issues don't have to be caused only by glue ear nor
repeated ear infections. That wasn't how I was. It can also be brain
abnormalities in the auditory areas of the brain. It can also be left
ear dominance,and you can read about that in the Tomatis method. I am
left ear and left eye dominant,and so is my mother. She has a lot of
Dyslexic symptoms too. It can also be caused by cerebellar vestibular
dysfunction. This is stuff is common sense stuff.

Evidence is provided to suggest:

There are structural brain differences, especially in the areas of the
brain involved in language processing, which are associated with
dyslexia. The planum temporale is an area on the surface of each
temporal lobe of the brain behind the primary auditory cortex and is
thought to be involved in language processing. In the general
population, the left planum temporale is usually larger than the right
one, reflecting not only the greater incidence of right handedness in
the general population but also, presumably, the greater involvement of
the left hemisphere in language processing. It is suggested that with
persons with dyslexia, the two plana appear to be more equal in size.

It really bothers me when you say that cerebellar vestibular doesn't
exist outside Dr Levinson because that's not true. You imply that
people don't have it,and so you probably assume that they are
hypochondriac,stupid,or even mentally ill. That's not true.
Cerebellar Vestibular Dysfunction is real,and many neurologists can
diagnose that. Labyrinthe Dysfunction is another word for it. It's
under ICD 386.50

A lot of people have balance and coordination problems,and they are not
just figment of a person's imagination and they are not psychological
problems. You can get a posturography test to differentiate
psychological problems from a real neurological,cerebellar,vestibular
disorder.

Electronystagmography,Posturography tests do exist, and Dr Levinson
used them on me. A lot of neurologists use those tests too.


To say cerebellar vestibular dysfunction does not exist outside Dr.
Levinson's world is not only false but also harmful to others might
have that condition.

You should read more about neurology.

Default Adult onset dyslexia (dyslexia)


perhaps you would be good enough to post about it then insted of
posting website that when i pressed "edit" "find" "Cerebellar
vestibular dysfunction" it replyed nothing came up

i know the cerebellar exits and the vestibular exists and assume they
can be dysfnctional but have not yet found anything on the 'Cerebellar
vestibular dysfunction' out side of levinston. please coppy and paste
from these sites or any other as my surch for the disorder on them was
fruteless on the 11 and figgured you'd taken equal care to see if it
was mentioned in the rest

Thanks very much,
Gemma

yes, and a lot don't

"The ear is not just for hearing. It is also for equilibrium. Anybody

yes i know how it it relivent?

"Of course, if there is problems with ears,
there can be problems with balance and coordination."

there can be but it doen't effect reading or speling

" Also there is
studies that show that a lot of Dyslexics do have have cerebellar

and a lot don't but we weren't dissing this we were discussing if
Cerebellar vestibular dysfunction exists outside the world of
levingston


"I wish people would really do some research before putting out false
information."

yes, that is why i rote
perhaps you could give an example to disprove me if i am wrong, giving
websites that don't mention "Cerebellar vestibular dysfunction" doesn't
help


Ted Rosenberg did the same crap when he said that
Dyslexics don't have speech problems when a lot do and even said that
people who have speech problems and had problems reading are mentally
retarded. Ignorant crap like that pisses me off. Speech problems can
symptoms of Dyslexia,Dyspraxia,and Autism. My speech problems were from

i'm not resoncilble for ted

Auditory processing issues don't have to be caused only by glue ear nor

repeated ear infections. That wasn't how I was.

please read / listen to my post i never surgested they did why are you
pretending i don't know stuff that clearlly from my post i do?

" It can also be brain
abnormalities in the auditory areas of the brain. It can also be left
ear dominance,and you can read about that in the Tomatis method. I am
left ear and left eye dominant,and so is my mother. She has a lot of

please read my post i am not ted i wrote different to what he writes!


"It really bothers me when you say that cerebellar vestibular doesn't
exist outside Dr Levinson because that's not true. "

please cut and past from any scientific site please show me i am wrong

"You imply that
people don't have it,and so you probably assume that they are
hypochondriac,stupid,or even mentally ill. "

no, this is your insecurities not what i wrote,

"Cerebellar Vestibular Dysfunction is real,and many neurologists can
diagnose that. "

are they all trained by levingston?

" Labyrinthe Dysfunction is another word for it. It's
under ICD 386.50 "

this is the 1st i've heard, maybe i'll research it

"A lot of people have balance and coordination problems,and they are
not
just figment of a person's imagination and they are not psychological
problems."

i was not sugesting otherwise, i know that dyspracia exsists why are
you eleging that i don't?

" You can get a posturography test to differentiate
psychological problems from a real neurological,cerebellar,vestibular
disorder.


Electronystagmography,Posturography tests do exist, and Dr Levinson
used them on me. A lot of neurologists use those tests too.

show me that it exsists

You should read more about neurology.

i have difficulty reading but i have spent many years listening to many
scientific publications on the net. do not patrinise me, insult me, or
miss qoute me, just show me if i am wrong

Here is stuff on auditory and other stuff

why are you sending me auditory stuff???? our disagreament is about
whether or not "Cerebellar vestibular dysfunction" exists outside of
levingston. i have a log history of eustachient tube dysfucntion (splet
wrong i'm sure) glue ear and ear infections, i have a thinned and
retracted eardrum i have an understanding of uditory problems physical
and nurilogical please don't patronise me.

take care Gemma

Default Adult onset dyslexia (dyslexia down)


Gemma,

I never said that all Dyslexics have cerebellar vestibular disorders
nor did I say that all Dyslexics have Dyspraxia,Sensory Integration
Disorder,ADHD


I know that Dyslexics vary in their symptoms and the other conditions
that they might have. I have stressed that with Ted Rosenberg and he
treated me like I was stupid. I also stressed that there can be
psychological symptoms that are a fall out to the experiences of being
Dyslexic,and he put me down. International Dyslexia Association even
talks about that.

I had stressed that there had be neurological and psychological testing
before diagnosing people as being mentally ill. They should look into
the possibility of learning disorders and not just diagnosed them
mentally ill.
I am concerned that a lot of neurodiverse people are misdiagnosed as
having mental illnesses that they don't have.


I hope that all is well with you.

I am sorry if I seemed a bit too defensive.


I respect my fellow Dyslexics.

Peace

Raymond
