Born to Think Different
Children with dyslexia are born with a brain that processes language differently than others.
Children who are very bright can have dyslexia.
They are often gifted in areas that do not require strong language skills such as art, computer science, design, drama, electronics, math mechanics, music, physics, sales and sports.
Dyslexia is the most common cause of reading, writing and spelling difficulties.
Studies carried out by Dr. Sally Shawitz of the Yale Center for Dyslexia & Creativity suggest that 1 out of every 5 children in US schools has dyslexia.
The manifestations of dyslexia are not the same for every child.
If you think your child may have dyslexia, you should see a specialized professional to get a diagnosis. Find out more about how to do that in the detection and remediation section of our blog.
