 The word dyslexia derives from the Greek prefix ‘dys’ and the root-word ‘lexis’. The former means ‘difficulty’ whereas the latter means ‘word or language’. Dyslexia is usually associated with reading and writing difficulties; people with dyslexia may also experience difficulties with vision and memory. Several studies have shown that if dyslexia is not diagnosed at an early stage, it will have an impact on the performance of the learner. So, if you have someone in your family who has dyslexia, he/she should be diagnosed as soon as possible. Dyslexia can have a negative impacts on the people who experience dyslexia.

In fact, dyslexia is not such a bad thing. Some famous scientists were dyslexic, such as Albert Einstein, Leonardo Da vinci, and Thomas Edison. :)

It has been more than one hundred years since Dr Kussmaul mentioned the case of an intelligent man who had difficulties in learning to read. He called the problem ‘word blindness’. In 1887, Rudolph Berlin, a German ophthalmologist used the term ‘dyslexia’ in place of ‘word blindness’.

Dyslexia is a neurological problem of genetic origin; it refers to a learning disability. It is also called "specific reading and writing difficulties". The International  Dyslexia Association (2002) has suggested this definition: "Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurological in origin. It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities."


Hope that this help to understand what dyslexia is. :)
