Dyslexia is a common learning difficulty affecting the ability to accurately and fluently read text, it also affects spelling. This means that people with dyslexia:

  • find it more difficult to access information presented in only writing
  • read much more slowly to the point of impacting understanding
  • are less able to skim or scan text
  • write hesitantly and much less
  • have difficulty with organisation, keeping track of tasks and understanding long chains of instructions
  • have negative attitudes to tasks involving reading

People with dyslexia are affected to different degrees but all can benefit from additional support.
