Dyslexia, sometimes called reading disorder, is a learning disability in the use and processing of linguistic and symbolic codes, alphabetic letters representing speech sounds or numeric representing numbers or quantities. It is the most common learning disability, can vary from mild to severe, and tends to run in families.
Dyslexia can occur at any level of intellectual ability and generally, people with dyslexia are visual thinkers who are creative and prefer hands-on learning. People with dyslexia shine in the arts, creativity, design, and computing. Albert Einstein, Alexander Graham Bell, Thomas Edison, Winston Churchill, Benjamin Franklin, and Mozart were all believed to have the gift of dyslexia.
People with dyslexia can overcome challenges by learning in a different manner. Come find out what a gift and opportunity dyslexia is at Dyslexia Works presented by Suzanne Buchaer, M.A. Education, Licensed Davis Dyslexia Facilitator on Sunday, January 31 at 2:30p at the Nyack Library.
