The term dyslexia

The term dyslexia simple means difficulty with words. The term "dyslexia" was coined more than a hundred years ago. Over the years it has been defined in several different ways. As used here, "dyslexia" refers to intelligent children and adults who have no limiting physical or emotional problems but who, despite conventional classroom experience, do not learn to read, write, spell, and comprehend as expected. Such children, unless they receive appropriate instruction, become adults whose reading and related language skills fall significantly below their general intelligence. look for more

Yup. I agree with your words 'intelligent children and adults'. Dyslexic individuals are extremely talented and smart. They're good with electronics, painting, creative thoughts and something with other normal people couldn't even imagine.

“Dys” means “difficulty” and “lexia” means “words or language”. Dyslexia is a specific learning disability primarily associated with a person’s ability to read. However, the difficulties can also affect individual’s writing abilities, spelling, and decoding written material.
It is currently believed that these difficulties are attributed to deficits within the phonological processing of an individual.
Additionally, people with dyslexia can have other difficulties such as putting things in order, difficulties with organization, following instructions, and difficulties with coordination.
Individuals with dyslexia can have average to even above average general intellectual abilities despite the deficits associated with dyslexia.
