Dyslexia is a learning problem where the eyes have difficulty understanding letters, numbers, etc. when they read or when they hear them. It is a decoding problem. For example, they see the letter “d” instead of the letter “b” or they skip a letter or words in a sentence. People with dyslexia have normal intelligence and usually have normal vision. It is a hard problem to diagnosed and it can go undiagnosed for years. It is very important to identify the cause of learning difficulties to have appropriate treatment.
