Dyslexia Fast Facts
Dyslexia affects an estimated 15-20% of the entire US population. As many as 70% to 80% of reading-based learning disorders are thought to be caused by dyslexia. Dyslexia affects the language centers of the brain, but it does not affect other areas. The result is that people with dyslexia do not have below-average intelligence or other cognitive abilities.
About a third of children diagnosed with dyslexia also struggle with some form of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
Both boys and girls seem to suffer from dyslexia at approximately the same rate, although some studies have indicated a higher rate of the disorder in boys.

Dyslexia Caregiver Tips
Dyslexia affects children when they’re still too young to comprehend the effects of the disorder. Therefore, it’s up to their parents and caregivers to be sure the disorder is treated appropriately. Keep these tips in mind as your child enters school and confronts the consequences of the disorder.
- Be positive and encouraging. Dyslexia can have a brutal impact on a child’s self-esteem. Make sure your child knows that dyslexia isn’t a sign of low intelligence. Focus on the child’s skills and strengths, instead of on their difficulties.
