The word 'Dyslexia' means 'a difficulty with words', and its most common characteristic is difficulty with reading, writing and spelling.
Dyslexia affects the way the brain works. It is not a medical condition like a disease or illness, it's a problem with the way the brain processes information. Perhaps the best way to describe it is that the connections in the brain have been wired-up differently, so that it processes information in a different way.
