Dyslexia Pathfinder

DEFINITION: "A general term that refers to the condition of children who have difficulty learning to read in the absence of any other obvious handicaps.  Though a great deal has been written about dyslexia and the disorder has been categorized and sub-categorized in a number of ways, there remains considerable controversy about its definition, etiology, and prevalence, and whether dyslexia exists at all as a specific, identifiable condition."
