UPDATED: What is dyslexia? – Kelli Sandman-Hurley

I don’t often paste in content from other sources for Family Bookshelf, but understanding dyslexia is important, and this Infographic is a great way to see just what happens when our brains process information!

Dyslexia affects up to 1 in 5 people, but the experience of dyslexia isn’t always the same. This difficulty in processing language exists along a spectrum — one that doesn’t necessarily fit with labels like “normal” and “defective.” Kelli Sandman-Hurley urges us to think again about dyslexic brain function and to celebrate the neurodiversity of the human brain.
