Depending on the source you read, dyslexia affects between 1 in 10 and 1 in 15 people. It is the most common reason for reading problems. It is also a neurologic, language-based disorder that affects many aspects of a person’s life, not just reading and spelling. Unfortunately, despite a growing library of evidence about the specific areas of the brain that are affected, most schools still use less than optimal methods of teaching these students. This is why Decoding Dyslexia was founded by families who are tired of being told that "Dyslexia is just a junk word meaning reading problems" or "Dyslexia doesn’t exist", or "There is no way to diagnosis it or provide help for it."
Help these individuals to reach their highest potential. Help Decoding Dyslexia get the legislation passed in EVERY state so that schools have to acknowledge it, learn how to identify it, and provide proven interventions to help our children become the best that they can.
