Phonetic dyslexia: is characterized by weak phonetic skills of children with dyslexia. This can frequently lead to other language learning difficulties. There are courses and/or training that can be helpful in overcoming these difficulties. It requires a great deal of motivation and perseverance for a person with dyslexia to correct language difficulties developed since childhood, but it can be done.
