The British Dyslexia Association (BDA) has adopted the Rose definition of dyslexia (2009):

Dyslexia is a learnig difficulty that primarily affects the skills involved in accurate and fluent word reading and spelling.  Characteristics are difficulties in phonological awarness, verbal memory and verbal processing speed.  Dyslexia occurs across the range of intellectual abilities.  Co-occurring difficulties may be seen in aspects of language, motor co-ordination, mental calculation, concentration and personal organization.


The BDA acknowledges the visual and auditory processing difficulties that some individuals with dyslexia can experience and points out that dyslexic readers can show a combination of abilities and difficulties that affect the learning process.  Some also have strengths in other areas such as design, problem solving, creative skills, interactive skils and oral skills BDA 2010.
