What is Dyslexia? 
 
 
Dyslexia is the most common learning disorder. It is marked by impairment of the ability to recognize and comprehend written words. Dyslexia is a type of reading disability usually manifested as a difficulty with written language, particularly with reading and spelling. Evidence suggests that it is a result of a difference in how the brain processes written and/or verbal language.
 
It is separate and distinct from reading difficulties resulting from other causes, such as deficiencies in intelligence, non-neurological deficiency with vision or hearing, or from poor or inadequate reading instruction.
 
The National Institute of Health’s Definition:
 
These individuals typically read at levels significantly lower than expected despite having average intelligence. Although the disorder varies from person to person, common characteristics among people with dyslexia are difficulty with phonological processing (the manipulation of sounds) and/or rapid visual-verbal responding
 
No matter how you define dyslexia, if it is left untreated it can and will ruin the life of a child and their chances of academic success.
