What is Dysnomia?
Definition: Dysnomia is a learning disability that is categorized by a difficulty in remembering names or recalling words from memory needed for oral or written expressive language. The individual may be able to provide description to an object in question, but isn’t able to recall the specific target name of the object.
Dysnomia is a neurological disorder present from childhood characterized by difficulty recalling words, names, and numbers.
Dysnomia is considered a milder version of anomia. If a child is having trouble with speaking, writing, or math, it is important to bring him/her to the doctor where neurological and speech-language pathology tests will be administered to diagnose the condition.
Dysnomia is often associated with signs for expressive language disorder.
