What is Dyslexia?
Dyslexia is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects reading and language processing, resulting in difficulties with accurate and fluent word recognition and spelling.
Dyslexia is a common neurodevelopmental disorder that primarily affects reading and language skills. Individuals with dyslexia often experience challenges in accurately and fluently recognizing words and spelling, which can lead to difficulties in reading, writing, and related academic tasks. Dyslexia is thought to have a genetic basis, and it is not related to intelligence; in fact, many individuals with dyslexia have normal or above-average intelligence. Early diagnosis and intervention are crucial, as dyslexia can lead to academic struggles and lowered self-esteem. Effective educational approaches, such as specialized reading programs and individualized support, can help individuals with dyslexia overcome their reading difficulties and reach their full potential.
