Dyslexia


Dyslexia is a developmental reading disorder. One in ten people have symptoms of dyslexia.

The International Dyslexia Association has a must read article to get you started learning more about dyslexia.

About the International Dyslexia Association:
The International Dyslexia Association is a non-profit, scientific, and educational organization dedicated to the study and treatment of dyslexia as well as related language-based learning differences. The IDA operates 45 branches throughout the United States and Canada and has global partners in eighteen countries, including Australia, Brazil, England, Germany, Ireland, and Japan.
There's so much to learn.
I'm personally working hard to learn more about dyslexia and ways to help. I suspect a daughter of a good friend has dyslexia. I want to help her the best I can. Many schools don't have resources or knowledge about how to help or make adaptations in the classroom for individuals with dyslexia.
Here are a few more articles worth reading to learn more about dyslexia.
Dyslexia - an article from Kids Health
Dyslexia - an article from the Mayo Clinic

Here's a helpful website.

Reading Horizons is a program that can help many readers with dyslexia. 

Have you had experience with dyslexia or dysgraphia? Dysgraphia is a writing disability related to dyslexia. 

So much to learn . . .

Please share a comment related to dyslexia. I write this blog as a way to connect to others and learn about teaching reading.
