Dyslexia affects one in five of the population. Irlen Syndrome affects sixty-five percent of Dyslexics and fourteen percent of the general population. These two learning deficits go unnoticed across the world, children in our schools are misdiagnosed and mistreated due to the lack of awareness. Our mission is to spread awareness to make these common challenges known to everyone.
"If we elect not to evaluate a child and that child later proves to have Dyslexia, we cannot give those years back to him." Sally Shaywitz
