Dyslexia which is a reading disorder, is characterised by trouble with reading despite normal intelligence. Problems may include difficulties in spelling words, writing words, sounding out words, pronouncing words when reading aloud and understanding what one reads as well as reading too quickly. Often these difficulties are first noticed at school.
