What Is Dyslexia?

The Rose Report on dyslexia defined it as “a learning difficulty that primarily affects the skills involved in accurate and fluent word reading and spelling”.

  • There isn’t one specific cause
  • Focus on reading and spelling difficulties
  • Moves away from the idea that dyslexia is linked to low intelligence – the mechanism for reading is separate from issues of intelligence. High-achieving, and low-achieving children have been shown to experience the same issues in memory and decoding in reading
  • There is no one test for dyslexia – dyslexia is best identified by ongoing teacher assessment
  • Dyslexia is a continuum – everybody has difficulties with reading/spelling to one degree or another
