October is National Dyslexia Awareness Month



October is National Dyslexia Awareness Month. Dyslexia is a language-based learning disability that results in people having difficulties with specific language skills, particularly reading. You can learn more about dyslexia by visiting the International Dyslexia Association website.

As a writer I couldn't imagine having dyslexia. It affects many people(young and old). It's is nothing to feel shameful about or hide. Many famous people have dyslexia.


Hosted by Olympic champion Bruce Jenner, Demystifying Dyslexia takes viewers on a journey of discovery about the challenges of living and learning with dyslexia. In his life, Bruce Jenner has achieved many things. He is an Olympian, an actor, author and entrepreneur and he has dyslexia!
