What is Dyslexia?

Dyslexia is a learning difference that can cause difficulties with learning and work. It affects approximately 1 in 10 people. It occurs on a spectrum with some people mildly affected and others more severely.

Everyone with dyslexia is different but there is a commonality of difficulties with reading, spelling, and writing and related cognitive/processing difficulties. Dyslexia is not a general difficulty with learning, it impacts specific skill areas. With the right understanding, accommodations, and support people with dyslexia can achieve success in education, the workplace and in wider society! 

Here at Dyslexia Association of Ireland, we are here to help!
