October is Dyslexia Awareness Month so every week this month we'll be giving you information about dyslexia, the International Dyslexia Association, and how the money you raise helps.
Dyslexia refers to a cluster of symptoms, which result in people having difficulties with specific language skills, particularly reading.
Dyslexia affects individuals throughout their lives; however, its impact can change at different stages in a person's life.
Dyslexia is not due to either lack of intelligence or desire to learn; with appropriate teaching methods, students with dyslexia can learn successfully.
The impact that dyslexia has is different for each person and depends on the severity of the condition and the effectiveness of instruction or remediation.
It is a myth that individuals with dyslexia "read backwards," although spelling can look quite jumbled at times because students have trouble remembering letter symbols for sounds and forming memories for words.
