Dyslexia is a continuum of specific learning difficulties manifested by problems in acquiring one or more basic skills (reading, spelling, writing, number), such problems being unexpected in relation to other abilities. Dyslexic difficulties can be described at the neurological, cognitive and behavioral levels. They are typically characterized by inefficient information processing, including difficulties in phonological processing, working memory, rapid naming and automaticity of basics skills. Difficulties in organization, sequencing, and motor skills may also be present. Dyslexia may be associated with early spoken language difficulties.
