What is dyslexia?2020-05-04T02:19:35-04:00

Dyslexia is a neurobiological learning disability that affects 1 in 5 people. It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. There are many signs for dyslexia, despite the common misconception that it is simply getting letters or numbers backward. For example, a child with dyslexia may have trouble rhyming words or remembering the names of letters. They may also replace words or use words that have no connection to the words they see on the page (ex. Saying “kitten” instead of “cat” when “cat” is clearly written on the page).
