What is dyslexia?

Dyslexia (noun) – A general term for disorders that involve difficulty in learning to read

or interpret words, letters, and other symbols, but that do not affect general intelligence.

Definition of dyslexia by Ministry of Education Singapore – a specific learning difficulty that

mainly affects the development of literacy and language-related skills.

1 in 10 people are dyslexic

Dyslexia is the most common learning disorder that affects 10% or more of the population.

Dyslexia is a lifelong condition, but with the right support and tools, a dyslexics true gifts can be unveiled. 

Dyslexia is just a different way of thinking, problem solving and learning.

They tend to form mental images faster than other people.

The ability to think with 3 dimensional images displays high levels of creativity and problem solving.

This however becomes an issue when it is applied to a 2 dimensional symbol

which could then confuse a dyslexic when looking at symbols such as b, d, p or q.

Carelessness and the lack of effort can often be misunderstood as the reason for a child’s inability to perform well in school.
