Dyslexia

Dyslexia is a learning difficulty that manifests itself primarily in written form of language. Children with dyslexia typically experience difficulty in reading, spelling and writing. It is a result of some neurological difference but not due to intellectual disability or lack of desire to learn.

Children with dyslexia may have difficulty with spelling, reading single words, letter and word reversals (e.g., ‘b’ and ‘d’, ‘tip’ and ‘pit’), and learning the words of nursery rhymes. They may also have problem with directions, remembering sequences and timetables, difficulty understanding details of a story, as well as problem with expressing ideas clearly.
