Dyslexia Affects 80%-90% Of All Individuals With A Learning Disability
"There are other learning disabilities, but they account for a very small portion of those identified as learning disabled."
(Yale Center for Dyslexia & Creativity)
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
         
       
"The key is to help those with a learning disability circumvent the challenges of their learning disability so they can share what they know in ways that demonstrate strength, leveling the playing field so their difficulties don't define who they are and what they can accomplish."
(From Five Misconceptions about Learning Disabilities, pbs.org)
