A dyslexic child working on a writing exercise. Dyslexia, sometimes called word blindness, is a developmental disorder affecting a child's ability to read and write. It is not indicative of low intelligence and may be present, to some degree, in one person in twenty. It can create serious educational problems but responds well to treatment in which the child is encouraged to practise reading and writing skills as much as possible, especially if this is begun early.
