Dyslexia is a learning disability. It affects a person’s abilities in reading, writing, and spelling. A person with dyslexia may find it difficult to recognise sounds of certain words and letters, correct spellings, difficulty in understanding sequence of directions, they find it difficult to understand information or instructions that are written down then told verbally, and they get confused between certain letters like ‘b’ and’. However, people with dyslexia are good at creative thinking and problem-solving skills. Everyone should understand that dyslexia is not related to a person’s intelligence level but their ability with learning.
