Who Has Dyslexia?
Dyslexia occurs in 15% of the population, according to studies cited in the early 1980's by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. More recent studies of dyslexia in adult literacy programs, prisons, juvenile courts, colleges, and the work force suggest that this figure is rising. Men and women from every ethnic group are affected.
A growing list of exceptional individuals known to have suffered from dyslexia proves that this condition doesn't have to diminish chances or ambitions. Most people with dyslexia possess average to superior intelligence and many are unusually gifted.
