Dyslexia is a universal reading difficulty. It can be found in all countries, cultures and languages: Arabian, European, Chinese, etc. However, everybody is different. Dyslexic individuals are different too. They face different problems while reading. Some of them may not understand what is written, while others may omit, transpose or alter letters while reading a word. And the same at the word level. The aim of this research is to overcome these problems by providing each dyslexic individual with the appropriate learning to improve his/her reading. This may also result in improving other aspects of their difficulties: such as spelling, self-esteem, etc. To do this,the research will follow three stages:
• Diagnosing a dyslexic child to identify their dyslexic type,
• Developing a training system to provide a series of learning exercises tailored to the needs of the individual dyslexic child.
• Evaluating the proposed system in terms of learning and satisfaction.
