WHAT IS DYSLEXIA?

Dyslexia is an inherited condition that makes it extremely difficult to learn to read, write, and spell.

Dyslexia is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. (National Institutes of Health)

Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede growth of vocabulary and background knowledge. (National Institutes of Health)

Dyslexia IS NOT the result of lack of motivation, sensory impairment (eyesight or hearing), inadequate instruction or environmental opportunities, or other limiting conditions. (International Dyslexia Association)

Dyslexia impacts 20% of U.S. population! (National Institutes of Health)
