Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurological in origin.  It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities.  These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction.  Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede growth of vocabulary and background knowledge. (international Dyslexia Association definition.)

Dyslexia causes unexpected trouble with reading, spelling, and writing.  It is not a disease or condition that should be cured.  Rather, it is a normal variation in human development.  It often brings with it skills, gifts, and talents that are important to our society.
