It's the most common learning disability, yet it's still hard to answer the question: What is it? Dyslexia is a reading problem, but its influence can be felt far beyond the classroom. It often disrupts home life, making dinnertime and bedtime a struggle. Scientists are exploring how human brains learn to read — and discovering new ways that brains with dyslexia can learn to cope. Many believe dyslexia is about jumbled letters, but experts say that's not quite right.
