The DSM 5 has placed an individual’s “Specific Learning Disorder” diagnosis into one of three categories – Specific Reading Disorder, Specific Math Disorder and Disorders of Written Expression. We will outline the definitions and behaviors of a reading disability or dyslexia and will include the overlapping nature of these three classifications. As an advocacy group of parents and professionals, The Dyslexia Champions of Manitoba’s goals are to raise awareness of dyslexia and to promote teacher training.
