What is Dyslexia?

According to the International Dyslexia Association, “dyslexia is a Specific Learning Disability (SLD) that is neurobiological in origin. 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 relationship to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction. Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension, vocabulary growth, and background knowledge.”  Moats, L.C., & Dakin, K.E (2012). Dylsexia basics. [Fact Sheet].  Baltimore, MD: International Dyslexia Association
