In the world of learning disabilities, such as dyslexia, disorientation causes perceptual distortion which explains many of the symptoms of dyslexia.
When I was first shown this comic strip, I could see how it aptly illustrated what disorientation is like for someone with learning disabilities; experiencing an alternate reality.
You and I have also experienced disorientation. A classic example is when you are sitting in a stationary vehicle and another vehicle next to you moves, creating the false perception that you are moving.
The difference is that our disorientation does not so much as affect our day-to-day functioning. But to a dyslexic, they encounter disorientation so frequently that it impacts their learning.
What is Oppositional Defiant Disorder or ODD? I have come across a number of children who are not only ODD, but also ADHD and dyslexic. Quite a handful to handle is an understatement. Parents are often overwhelmed by what they have to deal with and can upset the family dynamics significantly. There are some useful approaches recommended in this article. Hope you find it helpful.
