Finding out about dyslexia

Yesterday we started finding out about ADHD. Another problem that is more common than one tends to think is dyslexia. 

The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke gives the following definition for dyslexia:

"Dyslexia is a brain-based type of learning disability that specifically impairs a person's ability to read. These individuals typically read at levels significantly lower than expected despite having normal intelligence. Although the disorder varies from person to person, common characteristics among people with dyslexia are difficulty with spelling, phonological processing (the manipulation of sounds), and/or rapid visual-verbal responding." 

If you share the interest for this disorder, watch this video to find out more about it...

Also, take a look at this picture, comparing a nonimpaired brain with a dyslexic one...
