Dyslexia By: Jake, Mary-Grace, Gabby

The definition of dyslexia is: A general term for disorders that involve difficulty in learning to read or interpret words, letters, and other symbols, but that does not affect general intelligence.

If your loved one has been suffering from blurry vision while reading words, bright words on a page, and letters getting mixed up, then they could possibly have dyslexia.

70% to 80% of people that have dyslexia are in special educational classes.

Sometimes dyslexia is invisible to others. People walk past you everyday with dyslexia and you would never know. Some celebrities even have dyslexia like Bruce Jenner, Tom Cruise, Magic Johnson, and General George Patton. It is estimated in america that 1 in 10 people have dyslexia.
People with dyslexia have trouble in their daily lives that could be with jobs, driving, or even reading signs. Some types of dyslexia make it hard for them to do small movements. Being able to do small movements is a motor skill, like tightening a cap on a bottle, tying shoe laces, and buttoning clothing. Dyslexia makes it hard for them to have good motor skills. *Motor skills- Small and precise movements with your hand.
Some things that can help with dyslexia is getting a specific tutor for people with dyslexia. A few other options are, Audiobooks and medicine. Hopefully in the near future we will have glasses that can help people with dyslexia. Yale is studying the glasses right now and how the brain will react. Even though there are special ways to help with dyslexia you still cant out grow it.
