Japanese and Dyslexia
An interesting thread over at sci.lang.japan:
Is it possible to be a dyslexic when reading or writing in japanese? Is that affected by the share of kanji in the text? If so - in what way?
An answer that has relevance to us foreign learners comes from declan_mur:
Interestingly we have had two foreigners with dyslexia enrol at Yamasa and make it through the program without major dramas. 1 repeated a term, but both made it past JLPT2 level and would probably pass JLPT1 if they continue their studies. If dyslexia doesn't prevent foreign students from learning how to read and write Japanese, it shouldn't be more of a problem for native speakers, at least in terms of learning process.
