October is also Dyslexia Awareness Month. Dyslexia is a neurological condition, which causes a difference in how people understand and process language.
Since there’s no cure, a dyslexia diagnosis can feel overwhelming. While it makes reading more difficult, almost all people with dyslexia can learn to read.
Dyslexia does not affect intelligence. Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, Stephen Spielberg, and many more have excelled despite having dyslexia.
Dyslexia runs in families, so if you have dyslexia, you should keep an eye out for signs of it in your children.
Your child might have dyslexia if they have trouble learning their sounds or letters, or to speak, read, and write.
Getting special instruction that breaks down language structure can help your student cope with dyslexia.
You have a right to get help or special considerations when taking certain tests, applying for colleges, or applying for jobs.
