What is Dyslexia?

Dyslexia is a specific learning difficulty, which affects the way a person processes information in their brain. For instance, it can affect the ability to process the sounds of language (phonological skills), track a series of numbers (visual processing skills), and generally process information quickly and accurately (working memory).

As a result, dyslexia hinders the acquisition of adequate literacy skills, such as reading, writing and spelling.  However, dyslexia can also provide people with many strengths and there are many successful people that have dyslexia!
