Dyslexia & Reading Difficulties
Dyslexia is characterised by difficulties learning to read and in comprehension of language. This includes difficulty with auditory short-term memory; language skills and verbal comprehension.
Dyslexia is the most common learning difficulty. There are three main types of dyslexia (auditory, visual and attentional) which are explained by specific underlying conditions (e.g. attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, visual processing disorder and visual stress). Although it is considered to be a receptive language-based learning disability, dyslexia also affects one’s expressive language skills.
