DEFINITION OF DYSLEXIA
 
Dyslexia is a specific type of language-based learning disability.
 
It is an inherited condition that is neurological in origin, which 
hinders the acquisition of reading and writing skills.
 
Dyslexia is a language-based disorder that does not arise from a physical limitation or a developmental disability.*
