the purposes of this chapter, dyslexia is a learning disability that
is neurological in origin. It is characterized by difficulties with
accurate or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding
abilities. These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the
phonological component of language that is often unexpected in
relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective
classroom instruction. Secondary consequences may include problems in
reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede
the growth of vocabulary and background knowledge.
