If you have dyslexia there’s a 40% chance that an immediate family member will also have dyslexia.

Dyslexia is not a vision issue and cannot be resolved by vision interventions such as coloured glasses or eye exercises.

Students with dyslexia can also struggle with numeracy skills and may also have language disorders or ADHD.

Children and adults with dyslexia can have difficulties with accurate and fluent word recognition, spelling, writing and reading comprehension

Students with dyslexia can improve their reading and spelling skills with evidence-based literacy instruction and intervention.
