What is Dyslexia?

Neurodiversity Celebration Week: What is Dyslexia?

*From the blog of UK company, Inspiration Software

Over the last year, there has been a lot of talk about dyslexia in the media and in parliament, but there is still a lot of misunderstanding about what dyslexia actually is.

So, as it’s Neurodiversity Celebration Week we decided to shed some light on the topic.

It is estimated that about 10% of the population in the UK, and in fact the world, has some degree of dyslexia; that’s 1 in 10 people or globally 780 million people, diagnosed and undiagnosed.

Dyslexia is a common learning difficulty that causes problems mainly with reading, writing and spelling.
