Dyslexia symptoms: Dyslexia creates problems with sounding out words for reading and spelling. Reading is slow, choppy, and inaccurate and spelling may have the wrong letters in words, or the letters may be in the wrong order. Typically, comprehension is fine as long as inaccuracy does not significantly interfere with meaning.
