01 Oct October is Dyslexia Awareness Month
October is designated as Dyslexia Awareness Month here in Texas.
Dyslexia is one of the most common language-based learning disabilities affecting Texans. It is estimated that about one in five people have dyslexia in the United States. Proper diagnosis and early intervention are vital and essential in treating individuals with dyslexia so they can lead normal successful lives.
Dyslexia is not tied to intelligence. Dyslexic individuals are often gifted in art, computer science, design, math, music, physics and sports. Albert Einstein, Cher, Tim Tebow, Steve Jobs, Steven Spielberg, Anderson Cooper, Tom Cruise, and Magic Johnson are just a few of the many famous and gifted people with dyslexia.
