Terms & Properties

Concept Unique Identifier (CUI): C0476254

NCI Thesaurus Code: C96410  (see NCI Thesaurus info)

NCIt Definition: A learning disorder characterized by an impairment in processing written words. Reading difficulties can include distortions, omissions or substitutions of characters. Oral and silent reading difficulties can include faulty and slow comprehension.

HPO Definition: A learning disorder characterized primarily by difficulties in learning to read and spell. Dyslectic children also exhibit a tendency to read words from right to left and to confuse letters such as b and d whose orientation is important for their identification. Children with dyslexia appear to be impaired in phonemic skills (the ability to associate visual symbols with the sounds they represent). [HPO:probinson]

CSP Definition: inability or difficulty reading, spelling, or writing words despite the ability to see and recognize letters; a familial disorder with autosomal dominant inheritance that occurs more frequently in males.

CSP Definition: condition characterized by deficiencies of comprehension or expression of written forms of language.

MSH Definition: A cognitive disorder characterized by an impaired ability to comprehend written and printed words or phrases despite intact vision. This condition may be developmental or acquired. Developmental dyslexia is marked by reading achievement that falls substantially below that expected given the individual's chronological age, measured intelligence, and age-appropriate education. The disturbance in reading significantly interferes with academic achievement or with activities of daily living that require reading skills. (From DSM-IV)
