Dyslexia is the number one learning disability in the United States. Up to 15% of the population is considered to be dyslexic. This figure practically doubles for the home-schooled population.
The definition of Dyslexia varies widely but generally means the inability to read and understand written language. The perception of seeing letters or words backward is only one characteristic of being dyslexic and does not occur in all people with dyslexia.
However, all students with dyslexia process what they see incorrectly by adding, omitting, and substituting letters into words or see words that are not there. Difficulty identifying words, remembering words, tracking difficulty, and poor reading comprehension are common to all readers with dyslexia. Also, most students with dyslexia can understand verbal language, have grade appropriate vocabulary skills, and show normal to above normal intelligence or thinking skills.
