The backwords thing really doesn't have anything to do with dyslexia but, happens to people with learning disabilities in general, dsylexia It is a specific language-based disorder of constitutional
origin characterized by difficulties in single word decoding, usually reflecting insufficient phonological processing
abilities. These difficulties in single word decoding are often unexpected in relation to age and other cognitive and

manifest by variable difficulty with different forms of language, often including, in addition to problems reading, a
conspicuous problem with acquiring proficiency in writing and spelling.
