Dyslexia at a Glance:
Dyslexia is a learning ‘difference’ – classified as a disability in UK. Dyslexia can affect the way people communicate, and is different for everyone. It is not just about reading and writing and it has nothing to do with intelligence. There is no ‘cure’ but lots of practical things can help overcome some of the barriers it presents.
It is estimated that 1 in 10 people has dyslexia. Dyslexia exists in all cultures and across the range of abilities and backgrounds. Dyslexia often runs in the family.
It is important to remember that everyone with dyslexia is different and that they will not necessarily experience all of the the characteristics mentioned here. Everyone has different strengths, difficulties and strategies that work for them.
