a definition of dyslexia...........

The Rose Report (2009) suggests "dyslexia primarily affects accurate and fluent word reading and spelling.  Characteristic features of dyslexia are difficulties with phonological awareness (ability to manipulate sounds in words), verbal memory and processing speed.  There is some evidence that dyslexia is associated with difficulties in processing information coming in via the senses, including visual and auditory information." 

 

If you have dyslexia or other specific learning difficulties, you will need speciific type of help with multi-sensory lessons where all your senses absorb information better.
