Dyslexia is manifested in a continuum of specific learning difficulties related to the acquisition of basic skills in reading, spelling and/or writing, such difficulties being unexpected in relation to an individual’s other abilities and educational experiences.
Dyslexia can be described at the neurological, cognitive and behavioural levels.
It is typically characterized by inefficient information processing, including difficulties in phonological processing, working memory, rapid naming and automaticity of basic skills.
Difficulties in organisation, sequencing, and motor skills may also be present.

Risk for reading difficulty was based on the students’ performance on tests of English phonological awareness, English letter knowledge, and word reading.
Results indicated that students in the treatment group had significantly greater improvement in phonological awareness in both English and French than did the control students, even though training had been in French only.
