In brief: Agree with Dr. D

Dyslexia is a language-based learning disability caused by the brain's inability to process phonemes, the smallest units of sound in a language.
Read "Overcoming Dyslexia" by Dr. Sally Shaywitz for a full explanation. Dr. Henry Shapiro or Dr. Eric Tridas, Developmental/Behavioral Pediatricians in St. Pete, can help you find multi-modal reading therapy programs to augment school services.
