Children with dyslexia are as smart as other children, yet display a gap between their potential and their academic performance. Their academic difficulties are not due to a problem with their intelligence (their IQ is usually average or higher). Only, their brains are wired differently, impacting how they receive and process information. These children could face difficulties in reading, spelling, writing or mathematics. In addition, they could also display difficulties in executing functions, like organisation, planning and prioritisation, and impulse and emotional control.
