October is National Dyslexia Month. Dyslexia is a problem with reading, speaking, writing, and mixing up letters. This October is National Dyslexia Month because they try to bring awareness to finding kids with dyslexia and they try to help them with it. When someone has dyslexia it makes it harder for them to learn the same stuff as everyone else. They sometimes need more help in a subject or take a special class for their level in the subject. Children with dyslexia often don’t understand it at first and often need support from family, friends, and their teachers.
There is no cure. It is not contagious, but does run in a family. It is not characterized as a medical disease. The milestone are sometimes reached later, but there are many famous and successful people with dyslexia such as Tom Cruise, Alexander Graham Bell, Steven Spielberg, and many more.
