Dyslexia Awareness Month
October is National Dyslexia Awareness month, and this year I decided to share more about dyslexia through an Instagram stories series. Dyslexia is a neuro-cognitive learning disorder that affects one’s ability to read, spell, and process speech. However, individuals with dyslexia can reach their full potential and become highly successful in the classroom and in society when they are given multi-sensory instruction like Orton-Gillingham. Many Americans with dyslexia lead happy, healthy, and productive lives, and become top industry executives, creators of beautiful masterpieces, inventors of groundbreaking technologies, and defenders of American liberty.
In my Instagram series I focused on educating the general public about dyslexia and inspiring dyslexics to reach their full potential. Alternating facts and figures, I intended to help put a face to dyslexia and show that it is not as foreign as it may seem.
