Dyslexia is a learning disability. Those with dyslexia have problems with some or all of the following: decoding words, blending letters, reading fluently, reading orally, and comprehending what they have read. Dyslexia is defined as neurological, often genetic, disorder which interferes with processing language.
Although dyslexia appears to be a visual problem, it’s not. It’s actually more about hearing than seeing. More specifically, dyslexia is associated with difficulties in receptive and expressive language, including phonological processing.
