Abstract

We have all heard the word dyslexia and we also have our own ideas of what it is and how it can affect someone. These are often built through personal experiences of knowing people with it from our families and school and cultural perceptions developed within our environments. Often misconceptions are built around dyslexia, and this article will help to dispel some of these myths, such as: is it related to intelligence, or inherited, is it just laziness, can you catch it and does it actually exist.
