End the Myths about Dyslexia
Learn about Dyslexia and Take the challenge!
"I started this challenge to dispel myths about dyslexia and raise awareness about what it's like to have dyslexia. More than 10 million students have it..."
Dyslexia is a neurological condition caused by a different wiring of the brain. There's no relationship between dyslexia and lack of intelligence. Some real life success stories include Thomas Edison, Stephen Spielberg, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Charles Schwab. You can get more facts from IDA at dyslexiaida.org
Seeing or reading words backward is just one of the myths about dyslexia. You can find more at https://dyslexiaida.org/louisa-moats-debunks-five-popular-myths-about-dyslexia/
By accepting the ZYX Challenge you can raise awareness and funds for the International Dyslexia Association and the more than 10 million students struggling with dyslexia in the US.
