Being a learning disorder, Dyslexia involves difficulty in reading due to problems identifying speech sounds and learning how they relate to letters and words. In other words, it is called as a reading disability and it is a result of individual differences in areas of the brain that process language.

However, the condition doesn’t have any problems with intelligence, hearing or vision of an individual. In a way of marking “World Dyslexia Month” which is being observed across the world in October, The #CycleForDyslexia rally was organized to raise awareness among the public.
