October is National Dyslexia Awareness Month. At The Summit School, the only school in Anne Arundel County specifically designed for students with dyslexia and other learning differences, we believe it is important for us to educate the community about dyslexia because it is not well understood by most people.
Dyslexia is not reading words backwards or writing letters backwards. That is a common misconception. There are many misconceptions about the true meaning of dyslexia. Early signs of learning differences and educational intervention are also not well understood. Further, many people don’t understand that people with dyslexia are often very smart and can achieve great successes. This month, we hope to bring awareness to dyslexia and educate our community.
