Abstract

Dyslexia is a life-long neurological condition which has no physical manifestations. Children with dyslexia have average to above-average IQ with unique potential and abilities for out-of-the-box thinking, yet there is a significant disparity between their potential and their actual performance. In class, a child with dyslexia could struggle to read, spell, write or do maths. In turn, a lack of fluency in these skills could make it difficult for the child to retain, recall and take exams. The degree of dyslexia – mild, moderate or severe-determines the extent of the difficulty faced. Dyslexia could be suspected in children who struggle in class I (or later) and a standardised assessment test could ascertain it.
