What is dyslexia?
Dyslexia is an impairment in reading that can result from an abnormal developmental process. Although dyslexia is lifelong, individuals with dyslexia frequently respond successfully to timely and appropriate intervention. It is important to note that while dyslexia is classed as a learning disability, it is not indicative of an individual's intelligence and people with the disorder range from high to low intelligence levels. If you think that you or your children may be showing signs of dyslexia, you should contact an eye specialist with expertise in this particular field. It is also recommended to seek help if your child is generally struggling at school, as dyslexia could be an underlying cause.
