Understanding Dyslexia

Dyslexia is Real

Language-based learning disabilities are common — affecting 15-20% of the population — and yet, there are many misconceptions about dyslexia.

Studies show that individuals with dyslexia process information in different areas of the brain than do individuals without dyslexia. Dyslexia can make reading, writing, spelling, memorizing, and organizing your thoughts a really frustrating experience … even if you are bright, which most individuals with dyslexia are.

Dyslexia runs in families. While there is no “cure,” individuals with dyslexia can learn strategies and techniques and achieve great success — both in school and in life.
