by Carrie Bishop

October 01, 2011

If your child has dyslexia, or you suspect he does, know that he is not alone. In fact, almost one in seven people in the United States have dyslexia to some degree. Consider that Albert Einstein was dyslexic, as was Thomas Edison and Winston Churchill. Vince Vaughn, Jay Leno, Whoopi Goldberg and Salma Hayek are among the celebrities who have dyslexia, too. Dyslexia is not a sentence for failure. Individuals with the learning disorder are often highly capable, creative people with great potential.

Following are resources - both local and national - that may be able to help answer your family’s questions about dyslexia and get your child on the right path toward acquiring the desired language skills.
