Dyslexia is a reading disorder that makes it difficult to read fluently, despite intelligence levels, because it affects how the brain interprets written text, either visually or phonetically. The brain might have trouble recognising characters or words, or it might have trouble linking speech sounds (like phonics) to letters. This leads to a problem relating those words and sounds to images or ideas and what is already known.
A person with dyslexia may have difficulty storing information in memory and not recognise or remember what they have read, no matter how many times they see the same words or passage.

ssociating audio to printed text plays a key role in helping dyslexic children to gradually decipher.
Increasing space between printed lines and using fonts that accentuate the difference between letters typically tripping dyslexic also help.
