What is Dyslexia?
Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurological in origin caused by different wiring of the brain. It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction. Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede growth of vocabulary and background knowledge.
There is no cure for dyslexia and individuals with this condition must learn coping strategies. With the right instruction most individuals with dyslexia can learn to read and go on to accomplish great things.
There is no relationship to general intelligence and individuals with dyslexia are neither more nor less intelligent than the general population.
