Some people are more affected than others.
The basis of dyslexia is difficulty reading.

Dyslexics have difference in the area of their brain that associates the shape of the letter with the sound of the letter.
Often, dyslexics have difficulty with rapid word recall and rapid word recognition.
Dyslexia is more than a reading problem.
