Dyslexia is an inherited neurological disorder that affects the way people learn to read and speak as well as how they process things mathematically. Some of the worlds most famous artists, innovators and leaders were and are dyslexic, including Leonardo da Vinci, Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Agatha Christie, William Hewlitt, Winston Churchill, Tom Cruise, Cher, Jay Leno, and Charles Schwab.
Dyslexia affects one out of every five people, and affects boys and girls in equal numbers. Children left with untreated dyslexia often suffer devastating personal consequences.
Its the number one reason teenagers drop out of school, and is a primary factor in juvenile delinquency.
Research reveals that children with untreated dyslexia can become underachieving adults unable to contribute to society at their fullest capacity.
Dyslexia is, however, a treatable condition. Children with dyslexia need professional help, and the earlier they receive it, the greater their chances of achieving normal, fully functional lives.
