What is dyslexia?


Dyslexia is generic term referring to several kinds of difficulties of processing written language (both reading and writing). It is important to realize that most types of dyslexias are secondary to spoken language impairment. So-called “phonological dyslexia” is the most common type, secondary to poor ability to process “phonemes,” which are the smallest linguistically salient units of language. But other types of dyslexia also exist and should not be overlooked.
