The co-director of the Yale Center for Dyslexia & Creativity talks about the learning disability and how it affects kids in school.
Dyslexia is the most common learning disability, affecting one out of every five children. Most people who have it are never formally diagnosed. It’s an invisible problem that makes school incredibly challenging for millions of children, many of whom aren’t getting the services and support they need."
“Science has made a great deal of progress in understanding dyslexia, but it hasn’t been translated into practice as much as it should be,” according to Sally Shaywitz, MD, co-director of the Yale Center for Dyslexia & Creativity and a professor in learning development at the Yale University School of Medicine."
