Dyslexia is extremely common, affecting one in five people and representing 80–90 percent of all learning disabilities. Unfortunately, teacher education programs typically provide little instruction on how to best support dyslexic students, leaving educators in the dark about everything from screening to diagnosis to effective reading programs and accommodations. While this needs to change, there is much you can do in your own school or classroom to ensure that dyslexic students get the help they need to reach their full potential.
Start by being aware of signs of dyslexia, helping to identify children who might have dyslexia, and supporting students with evidence-based approaches to remediating dyslexia.
