Oladoyin Idowu, a 21-year-old Nigerian lady suffering from dyslexia, has appealed to parents to study their children and understand why they are performing abysmally in school instead of beating them.
Briefly.co.za notes that dyslexia is a learning disorder that affects a person's ability to read, spell, write and speak.
The young lady, who is a final year student of psychology, said she does not understand an analogue clock despite the fact that she has been taught several times.
In an interview with BBC News Pidgin, Oladoyin said she still cannot distinguish the right hand from the left hand, adding that she also has a problem with spelling.
The lady found out in 2015 that she was dyslexic and started going for therapy in 2016.
She has devised a mode of learning that works for her, which includes recording her lectures and listening to the audio for comprehension. Oladoyin also designs her notes in a way that helps her understand her courses better.
She said making a child repeat a class will not stop dyslexia, adding that parents should pay attention to the disorder.

Weeks ago, the man posted on his LinkedIn page that he got a job as an analyst for the Bank of America. He would be working in the institution’s global collateral management sector.
In a post that surfaced on Twitter, a Nigerian tweep reposted the photo with his hippy hairstyle and said:
“How can I tell Nigerian HR that this guy just secured a bank job with this hairstyle?”
He went ahead to say that some companies before employment would tell their prospective workers to shave off their beards.
