My mother works at a school for children with Dyslexia. Dyslexia makes people have trouble reading or interpreting some words or symbols, but it does not affect overall intelligence.
There are 37 traits to determine if someone is dyslexic. Some of these traits include that they appear smart and articulate but just have trouble with reading and/or spelling. Also, they test well orally, but not written.
Dyslexia is sometimes considered an invisible disability. An invisible disability is one that is not immediately apparent. Some parents that have children who are quarterbacks and ballet dancers do not think that they might have a problem with learning.
My mom loves her job! She loves how comfortable her children with dyslexia are in her class. Sometimes to the anguish the child feels disappears in the classroom.
