Dyslexia is a learning difference that affects a person’s ability to develop language skills, particularly reading and spelling.
Dyslexia is not related to intelligence, but is caused by a difference in the way the brain processes information and for this reason, children with dyslexia learn differently.
Dyslexia often runs in families and evidence suggestes that it affects 10 per cent of the population.
