In brief: No cure
Dyslexia is a condition where the brain mixes up signals it receives.
This causes a jumbling and/or reversal of letters and numbers, difficulty remembering sequential information, etc. There is no definitive cure for it. Folks diagnosed with it are trained to recognize it and adapt to it. They are often of average to above-average intelligence and do very well with the proper help.

A learning eval can often find the kids strength area & modifying teaching may help. ie. I kid may struggle to read a passage & not understand or remember it due to the struggle, yet if they hear it, it may be understood & remembered.The same kid,reading the passage into a recorder can listen later & remember.

In brief: Different
There are several different forms of dyslexia which ultimately is difficulty with reading comprehension.
Proper diagnosis allows for correct teaching of different ways to process the information and then "read". So it really can be " corrected".
