What is Dyslexia?

What is Dyslexia? (Mayo Clinic)

Dyslexia is a learning disorder/reading disability that involves difficulty reading due to problems identifying speech sounds and learning how they relate to letters and words. It is a result of individual differences in areas of the brain that process language.

Dyslexia is not due to problems with intelligence, hearing or vision. Most children with dyslexia can succeed in school with tutoring or a specialized education program. Emotional support also plays an important role.
