Dyslexia – Myths and Facts

Dyslexia is one of the world’s most common learning differences. Some studies estimate that as many as 1 in 5 people have a degree of it, so the chances of you knowing someone with it are extremely high.

Although different cultures treat learning differences with varying degrees of recognition, the fact is that dyslexia does impact people all over the world. As it is dyslexia awareness week this month, we thought it would be a great time to help spread some awareness with this blog.

What is dyslexia?

People with dyslexia will learn in different ways. It is a processing difference in which their brains deal with the information they receive differently from others. Because reading and writing skills depend so heavily on the information-processing mechanisms in the brain, they can be severely affected by dyslexia. People with dyslexia may have difficulty remembering and processing the information they see and hear in lessons but it can also impact other non-academic areas such as organisational skills.
