What Is Dyslexia?

Dyslexia is primarily a language-based learning disability that affects both reading fluency and comprehension. It can cause individuals to struggle with spelling, writing and even speech. We’ve developed information for both teachers and parents to learn more about Dyslexia, and what they can do to help.

A) Get informed: Take advantage of our and the International Dyslexia Association’s research and information pages to learn more about how Dyslexia affects all aspects of your loved one’s life.

B) Get involved: Attend local school board meetings, ask about how your local school (by law they’re supposed to) has resources for or is working to help the dyslexic learners in their care. Become an activist and speak up! If you remain silent, nothing will probably happen. Speaking up helps not only your loved one, but encourages others to do so as well.

C) Get empowered: Know the laws providing extra resources for special needs learners. Know your rights! Get to know other dyslexic learner advocates and activists close to you / in your area. Write your local and state representatives and find out what they are doing to help the dyslexic learner. Contact the Great Lakes Dyslexic Foundation for financial aid for your dyslexic learner.
