Definition: Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurological in origin. It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and / or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction. Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede growth of vocabulary and background knowledge. 
Simply, Dyslexia is a specific learning disability and while there are different types, what they have in common is the difficulty in reading comprehension. Intelligence and sight are normal, but when the dyslexic tries to read, words look scrambled. If reading did not exist, no one would know there was a problem.
1. The Problem – the Left-Brain is not operating like it “should”
Brain scans of dyslexics reveal that the left-brain under performs during reading. The left-brain is responsible for words, logic, numbers, analysis, lists, linearity and sequential thinking. It works from detail to the whole, the method used by average man. Sequential thinking is related to auditory thinking, linear, involving analysis and progression from simple to complex, deductive reasoning (from the parts to the whole). The left-brain assembles letters and words like carriages of a train, that all flow smoothly when the engine moves forward.
The right brain is the creative brain and deals in areas, space, and patterns. It is responsible for dimension, spatial awareness, colour, imagination. Spatial/visual thinking (the method used by dyslexics) is very different to sequential thinking.
In the average person, the right and left hemispheres of the brain work synchronously. The right brain forms a picture and the left-brain supplies detail. This does not happen with dyslexics and this is at the root of the difficulty. The right brain does not keep track of letter-order in spelling and sees a word as a drawing, a sketch, not a line up of sounds. A dyslexic person said that when he reads “the words move on the page, just like the ripples on a swimming pool”.  Consequently, dyslexics make a mess of reading and writing. Most dyslexics have low academic results in comparison with higher IQ results. This happens because they cannot learn a new lesson the traditional way.
Some scientists hypothesise that the dyslexic brain is an inferior model that is fundamentally flawed, a throwback to a time when man did not need to read. But not Dr. Gordon Sherman PhD , a leader in the field of dyslexia research and education for over thirty years. This is what he thinks:
Nature loves diversity .. Diversity propels evolution by enhancing a species’ ability to adapt to changing environments. How does this relate to dyslexia? While a dyslexic brain may not be ideally suited for processing certain sequential and linguistic information, perhaps its symmetry and connection differences constitute an ideal design for other kinds of processing. Indeed, teachers of children and adults with dyslexia often remark that many have unusual strengths. In other words, children with dyslexia have strengths and weaknesses like all children. However, a disproportionate number may have exceptional strengths that can enrich all our lives. And, given the fact that environments always change, who knows what diverse minds our species will need in the future? 
2. Esoteric History and the New 6th Subrace
- Dr. Sherman hypothesises that this brain is possibly a new evolutionary model. If so, for what purpose?-a possible answer is found in Esoteric History and the evolution of the Root Races.
- According to Blavatsky, the current 5th Aryan Root Race is “1,000,000 years old”  and the principle being developed is the concrete mind and its powers.
- The future 6th Root Race (millions of years in the future) will develop the faculty of the Intuition.
- There are seven races or sub-principles developed within a race. Humanity is currently in the 4th and 5th subrace stages of the Aryan Race, halfway in the transition from concrete mind to intuition; and the 6th subrace is now appearing, primarily in the United States, Australia and New Zealand according to Blavatsky. 
- The mental faculty to be developed in this sixth stage or subrace of the Aryan Race is the Abstract Mind. 
- [This is] the pattern building faculty, or the mind which works with the blue prints upon which the forms are modelled. 
Note the use of the words “the pattern building faculty”, linking the abstract mind to the right brain. This abstract mind comprehends or senses inner realities or truths that are not concrete or tangible. The intuitive faculty is instant knowing and comprehension, a completely new faculty. The abstract mind works with the concrete mind to help it grasp and interpret the unseen. Along with abstract mind, this subrace will develop more fully the antahkarana, the bridge between the abstract and concrete minds. This will take man’s mind to the foothills of the Buddhic Plane and to the intuition, which is the faculty that distinguishes that higher level.
The consciousness of man is gradually evolving from logical thought to the intuitive – via the abstract mind. An analogy is the evolution of computers. First, we had huge and clumsy models to analyse data. Today computers are small and sophisticated things. Perhaps 6th Root Race people will only need their minds.
Forcing dyslexics to learn left-brain ways of reading and writing is like making an iPhone use methodology that is fifty years old. The only real problem for dyslexics is that they are born into a world that does not yet have appropriate educational materials that meet their needs. This will have to be created by them.
