Probably not what you think
Dyslexia is often referred to by many to be a learning disability or disorder but it is really a difference in how a person processes. There is nothing “wrong” with a dyslexic brain. In fact, because the brain is functioning differently, there are many strengths that accompany dyslexia.
The differences in how someone with dyslexia processes can negatively affect one or more academic areas such as reading, writing, spelling, math, listening, and focus. Often misunderstood, dyslexia is not caused by simply reversing the order of letters in reading or by a visual perceptual problem that causes a person to read letters or words backwards or upside down. It runs deeper than that, because dyslexia is a neurological or brain-based condition, meaning it affects more than just one system in the brain.
