There are two contributing factors of dyslexia. The first factor of dyslexia, is the individual’s lack of use of the left hemisphere of their brain. The left hemisphere deal with matching letter to sounds, and the understanding of grammar and syntax. The second contributing factor for dyslexia is the make-up of the “central bridge of tissues in the brain.” (Reading From Scratch, n.d.)
