It inhibits recognition and processing of graphic symbols, particularly those pertaining to language. Symptoms, including very poor reading skills, reversed word and letter sequences, and illegible handwriting, usually become evident in the early school years.

Anomalies have recently been found in reading-related pathways in the brains of dyslexic persons.
