National Dyslexia Awareness Month

One in ten people have symptoms of dyslexia, including slow or inaccurate reading, poor spelling, poor writing or mixing up similar words. Dyslexia is a language-based learning disability and contrary to some beliefs, it is not due to lack of intelligence or desire to learn. Many famous people have dyslexia but have not let it stop them from achieving their goals. Denver Bronco’s player, Neil Smith, and Kinko’s founder, Paul Orfalea, are just two examples. To read their stories, and access a list of both fiction and nonfiction library resources about dyslexia, visit our Dyslexia Resources page.
