All children differ from one another at varying levels. However in some children, the learning difficulties are more serious and the children deviate more significantly in one way or another. These are special needs children who are different and whose behaviour deviates significantly from the norm. This paper examined the understanding of dyslexia among school aged children in Nigeria. The paper went further to discuss concept of learning disability, dyslexia, sign/symptoms, types, causes and management of dyslexia. It is recommended that series of seminars and workshops should be organized by schools, Government, and NGOs for teachers, school psychologists and counsellors in order to facilitate the understanding of dyslexia, support for dyslexic children and their inclusion in their communities.
