A new definition of dyslexia has been issued:


Dyslexia is primarily a set of processing difficulties that affect the acquisition of reading and spelling.  The most commonly observed cognitive impairment in dyslexia is a difficulty in phonological processing (ie in phonological awareness, phonemic decoding skill or phonological memory).  However phonological difficulties do not fully explain the variability that is observed.  Working memory, orthographic skills and processing speed problems can contribute to the impact of dyslexia. It can affect the acquisition of other skills such as mathematics, reading comprehension or learning another language.          (sasc.org.uk   May 2024)
