Dyslexia is a language-processing based learning disability that produces difficulty in several specific skills, reading in particular.
A ‘different wiring of the brain’ causes dyslexia. Struggles with pronunciation, writing, and reading are also common among students.
According to the International Dyslexia Association,
“Dyslexia is a learning disability that affects one’s ability to easily process written and/or verbal language. It is the most common cause of reading, writing and spelling difficulties.”
Dyslexia does not mean your child is not intelligent. All students deserve to get the help they need, both in and out of the classroom.
