Although most people have heard of dyslexia, many misconceptions about it exist. Dyslexia is a language-based disability that affects reading, writing, spelling and sometimes speaking. It might surprise you to know that it affects about 1 in 5 people. The dyslexic brain processes and interprets language differently than the non-dyslexic brain.

Signs of dyslexia change with age, but include difficulty recognizing letters and rhyming words, gripping a pencil, spelling, and remembering facts or numbers.
