Learn Chinese

A new study found that people who have dyslexia in one language, may not in another.

From Discovery Channel:

Dyslexia affects different parts of children’s brains depending on
whether they are raised reading English or Chinese. That finding,
reported in Monday’s online edition of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, means that therapists may need to seek different methods of assisting dyslexic children from different cultures.

“This finding was very surprising to us. We had not ever thought
that dyslexics’ brains are different for children who read in English
and Chinese,” said lead author Li-Hai Tan, a professor of linguistics
and brain and cognitive sciences at the University of Hong Kong. “Our finding yields neurobiological clues to the cause of dyslexia.”
