Dictionaries and encyclopedias are among the best sources to use to acquaint yourself with correct terminology, and also, to find a general introduction to the subject matter. In the dictionary category, I have provided you with one internet index (Google) and an additional source providing authoritative definitions of Dyslexia.

  • Definitions of Dyslexia on the Web:

  • This Google Index provides its readers with several links to organizations and how they define "Dyslexia." Each link may provide a definition, an acronym or a definition provided by an organization. This index is an excellent tool for parents, teachers, and students who need a quick reference to words associated with this disorder.

  • Word IQ.com

  • Word IQ provides several definitions of "Dyslexia" from the University of Miami School of Medicine.
