It is estimated that 1 in 5 people have Dyslexia.
Over 40 million people in the US alone have dyslexia. Only around 2 million of them have been diagnosed.
What is Dyslexia?
Dyslexia is a language-based learning disability which causes extreme difficulty for students learning to read, write and spell, regardless of their IQ.
What is the impact of untreated Dyslexia?
The absence of appropriate educational support to overcome dyslexia often negatively impacts a student’s school and ultimately career success, as well as self-esteem.
What do children with Dyslexia need?
With early detection and diagnosis, children with dyslexia can receive appropriate interventions which will enable them to become successful readers and writers. These interventions require teachers with special training and materials created specifically for those with dyslexia.
How We Help
We provide financial resources for educational institutions that do not have funding to help students with dyslexia. These resources are used for specialized training and educational materials for instructors who teach these students.
