Having a child diagnosed with dyslexia can be a traumatic experience. While dyslexia can make reading more difficult, with the right instruction, almost all individuals with dyslexia can learn to read. Many people with dyslexia have gone on to accomplish great things.

Among the many dyslexia success stories are Thomas Edison, Stephen Spielberg, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Charles Schwab. Dyslexia is a neurological condition caused by a different wiring of the brain. There is no cure for dyslexia and individuals with this condition must learn coping strategies. Research indicates that dyslexia has no relationship to intelligence. Individuals with dyslexia are neither more nor less intelligent than the general population. But some say the way individuals with dyslexia think can actually be an asset in achieving success.

If you are a person with dyslexia, a parent of a child with dyslexia, a teacher or other professional interested in working to make the lives of people with dyslexia richer and more productive, please consider joining our national organization.  In doing so you will automatically become a member of the North Carolina Branch.

We encourage you to join us in our mission. Please feel free to contact us if you have questions.
