WHAT IS DYSLEXIA?

  • Dyslexia is a learning disability that includes difficulty in the use and processing of linguistic and symbolic codes, alphabetic letters representing speech sounds or numeric representing numbers or quantities.

  • Dyslexia is not the result of neurological damage, but the product of neurological development.

  • Dyslexia varies from mild to severe.

  • Dyslexia does not reflect an overall defect in language, but, rather, a localized weakness within the phonological module of the brain. This module is the functional part of the brain where the sounds of language are put together to form words and where words are broken down into sounds.
