is a learning disability in reading. It makes reading challenging. But it can also make spelling and writing difficult.
Signs of dyslexia can show up in different ways and at different ages. And the signs can change over time. In preschool and kindergarten, kids might struggle with:
Recognizing letters or rhyming words
Pronouncing words, like saying “mawn lower” instead of “lawn mower”
Learning the alphabet and the days of the week
Explaining what a story was about
As kids get older, they might read below grade level. And some reading challenges might not show up until later — as late as high school. Kids may also struggle with things like spelling, math word problems, getting jokes, or learning another language.
