About 20 percent of all men and 5 percent of women suffer from dyslexia. Dyslexia is an innate disability classified as learning disability that interferes with cognitive processes (processes of organization, processing, and analysis of information) related to language skills and are required for reading. Today, dyslexia is diagnosed in children after identifying reading and writing difficulties and following appropriate tests. Early detection of dyslexia improves coping with it. The project investigate the relationship between dyslexia or a low level of reading and visual parameters - the ability of the participants to move their eyes. Using these parameters we were able to separate a group of dyslexic and non-dyslexic children. These classification methods can enable early detection of dyslexia than it possible today.
