Dyslexia literally means difficulty with words, and this can cover reading, writing, spelling and any other aspects of language. It is not simply a reading failure. In fact, dyslexia is a three-fold problem with the person having difficulty with organizing and memory as well as word-finding, but IQ is often high.  This course looks at the cognitive and

behavioural problems faced by the dyslexic and his family, the parents and teacher.
