Dyslexia is a language based learning disability
that affects between 15-20% of the population as a whole. People with dyslexia show difficulty with various forms of printed
and spoken language including reading, writing, and spelling. It occurs in people of all backgrounds and intellectual levels.
Those with dyslexia are often very bright and gifted in other areas. Dyslexia presents itself as an unexpected weakness amid
a sea of strengths.
