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 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.

Fun books including characters identified with dyslexia

Doctor Dyslexia Dude book series by
Dr. Shawn Anthony Robinson,
board member of the International Dyslexia Association, caught my attention, but I haven't really vetted this yet. Any of you out there that know of these books and can attest to their integrity and value, please reach out to me (Zafiro), with your review. Thanks!


Great introductory pamphlet for parents with kids who struggle with reading and for blossoming parent groups (like ours). It was written by a group in Ohio that banded together to help their children gain fair and appropriate access to their education. You'll learn about identifying dyslexia and what to do to help your child as well as your community.

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 child's education appropriate and accessible. It can sometimes be a long road.
