Stealth Dyslexia

Dyslexia is a pretty nuanced topic when you dig deeper into symptoms, strengths, weaknesses, and the like. For instance, “stealth dyslexia” is a term used for those who have solid reading comprehension, yet are far behind peers in spelling and other areas dyslexics are known to struggle. There was much debate about whether they should even be called dyslexic, but continued research has shown fascinating insights into this “sub category” of dyslexia.
