Dyslexia Facts:

Dyslexia is the most common learning difference.

80% of reading difficulties are due to dyslexia.

15-20% of the population is dyslexic.

Dyslexia is not an intellectual disability, but instead is a difference of how the brain is associates the shape of a letter with its sound.

Dyslexics are often very intelligent.

Letter reversals are a symptom of dyslexia.

Dyslexia affects people at varying degrees.

Dyslexics often have other learning differences that can affect rote memorization and their brain's processing speed, potentially affecting their ability to learn math in traditional ways.

This is one of the best books I've read about how to advocate for my child within the school district. I highly recommend it to parents and dyslexics who are looking for ways to make their educational appropriate and accessible. (this note is from Zafiro Papastratakos)
