Dyslexia is a specific learning difficulty which mainly affects the development of

literacy and language related skills. Children with dyslexia experience difficulties with phonological processing, working memory, processing speed and the automatic development of skills that do not match up their overall cognitive abilities.


Dyslexia tends to be resistant to conventional teaching methods, but its effects

can be mitigated by timely and specific intervention. The most effective way to improve dyslexia are computer based programs that combine research on how the brain learns with the latest technology to develop the skills needed to become a good reader.
