Also called reading disability, dyslexia affects areas of the brain that process language. People with dyslexia have normal intelligence and usually have normal vision.

Dyslexia is a learning disorder that affects your ability to read, spell, write, and speak. Kids who have it are often smart and hardworking, but they have trouble connecting the letters they see. Dyslexia, also known as reading disorder, is characterized by trouble with reading despite normal intelligence.

Different people are affected to varying degrees. Problems may include difficulties in spelling words, reading quickly, writing words, “sounding out” words in the head, pronouncing words when reading aloud and understanding what one reads. Often these difficulties are first noticed at school.

When someone who previously could read loses their ability, it is known as “alexia”. The difficulties are involun. Dyslexia is a learning difficulty that impairs a person’s ability to read and write.

Learn about its symptoms, causes, and strategies for managing it here. Dyslexia is defined as an unexpected difficulty in learning to read. Dyslexia takes away an individual’s ability to read quickly and automatically, and to retrieve spoken words easily, but it does not dampen their creativity and ingenuity. “Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurobiological in origin. It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities.

Dyslexia is a learning disability in reading. People with dyslexia have trouble reading at a good pace and without mistakes. They may also have a hard time with reading comprehension, spelling, and writing. But these challenges aren’t a problem with intelligence.

Dyslexia is a learning disorder that affects both children and adults. Its symptoms are different with age, and severity can vary as well.

  • I have dyslexia and I was called stupid and dumb at School it was so hard but I had so much help.
    Some people don’t understand that Dyslexia is a learning disability which affects so many people in different ways like me reading and spelling I found it so hard but I worked and worked so hard to help myself with being dyslexic.

  • Sounds similar to mind muscle connection. When you’re doing a specific lift if you don’t have mind muscle connection that muscle isn’t going to take the brunt of that force and won’t grow as fast as if it’s activated through mind muscle connection.

  • There was so many times my class would read out loud and I would want to read so I did and I would skip whole lines or sections at a time and one time I wanted to read but all the words mixed together(idk how else to explain it) so I couldn’t read and I had to sit back down

  • ive got dysexia and the best way i can descibe it is like this:
    u see these words

    now this is what i see-
    c a t
    d o g
    h e l l o
    what im trying to say is that u see words, i see letters. this is hard when faced with words like “the” because ik that t makes t and h makes h and e makes e so i would say THE istead of the.
    am i going to fast? or the word Pneumonia(copy paste) i know what all of the letters mean, but pneu combination in my head makes NO SENSE AT ALL AND IT STILL DONT.

  • I always have trouble on reading and writing and sometimes speaking I didn’t finish high school because of it and know i want to get my GED I’m not confident of passing it it sucks having dlexia

  • Neuroscientists at Cambridge University in England say that “interventions based on rhythm and even music may be beneficial, at much earlier ages. Rhythm is more overt in music than in language, and other projects at the Centre have shown that being able to sing in time with music is predictive of syllable and rhyming skills, and that training in rhythm improves phonological awareness.” http://www.cam.ac.uk/research/news/the-educational-neuroscience-of-dyslexia-and-dyscalculia
    One software intervention that holds promise is TUNEin to READING, http://www.tuneintoreading.com, that rewards singing accuracy while children re-read songs repetitively.

  • I think I have dyslexia but I read much quicker than normal But I have all the other symptoms (and Long words are hard too ) Dose anyone have this

  • I am not dyslexic,just poor stomach eye and its impact on brain.Analytic thought,probably average,language depends,science interested,logic better,math no
    Right brain except music and art all good,not that much into music art

  • I have dyslexia and English ain’t my mother tongue. I was texting to a friend and spelled perfectly the phrase C’est la vie without speaking French. I was sure I spelled it wrong and noted that in my text. I looked it up and found out I spelled it right. I misspelled the word “French”. Then misspelled the word “language”. She asked me how I managed to spell French but not “French”

  • My son understand reads and write he just can’t speak some words pronounce properly like R word z word he says z jaad n r like daa other words r ok o don’t know my son is 5 shave he says some other thing he tries but it’s tough for him and me do I have to to speech therapy dr

  • I have mild dyslexia (and slightly more severe numeral dyslexia), and I’m a writer. I’m also going to study literature. My existence is ironic in its own, lol

  • When I read I sometimes miss words (or ignore their existence) or it changes to a different word or the context of the sentence doesn’t make sense to me. Is this considered dyslexia? I have been trying to research this but nothing is coming up. Please answer @Ted-Ed

  • Bring continually corrected by people on IRC was the reason I was able to get my spelling better, and trying too read daily is what got my reading better, nothing special, it’s such a blessing having people correct you after they correct you enough times you remember it eventually and from that point forward you are able to spell the word correctly.
    If you want to use different sides of the brain, try using a different hand, I have seen a big improvement by changing what hand I used my mouse in for casual tasks.
    Do more stuff with your left hand or vice versa if left-handed.

  • If you really want an insight into Dyslexia, find and read the book “The Gift of Dyslexia”.
    Its not a disability but rather a different way of thinking, if it was a disability, it seems strange that most of the greatest minds the world has seen were dyslexic (Leonardo Di Vinci, Albert Einstein to mention just 2). If you are dyslexic, be proud as you have abilities that not dyslexic people don’t.

  • When I was in primary school I used to write everything in an inverted manner (alphabets and numbers), but I think I was pretty good at reading and speaking. Was it dyslexia?

  • I was said too have dyslexia turns out I just needed glasses for my poor vision. My case was never investigated because I am a minority from a refugee family.
