Dyslexia is not the result of low intelligence.  An unexpected gap exists between learning aptitude and achievement in school.  The problem is not behavioral, psychological, motivational or social, and people with dyslexia do not 'see backward'. Dyslexia is not a disease; it has no cure.  People with dyslexia are unique, each having individual strengths and weaknesses. Dyslexics may show special talent in areas that require visual, spatial and motor integration.  Many dyslexics are creative and have talent in areas such as art, athletics, architecture, graphics, electronics, mechanics, drama, music or engineering.

In 1986, the first Texas State Dyslexia Law was passed after great efforts from parents, educators, and law makers.

More information about dyslexia can be referenced at the International Dyslexia Association website.

Dyslexia occurs among all groups, regardless of age, race, gender or income.  Many successful people have dyslexia and many dyslexics are successful.  Recent research has established that dyslexia can run in families.  A parent, sister, aunt, uncle or grandparent may have similar learning difficulties. Dyslexia is found across all language systems, although the characteristics may present differently, depending on the language.
