Dyslexia is the most common learning disability in the world, and up to 15 to 20% of the population has a language-based learning disability. If you don’t have dyslexia yourself, you likely know someone who does.
Dyslexia is characterized by difficulties with reading, writing and spelling. Like other learning disabilities, people with dyslexia process information and learn differently.
Though learning disabilities are often characterized as a childhood issue, they are lifelong conditions that follow people into the workplace. People with dyslexia find it harder to find jobs and they often experience challenges once they are hired because of their learning disability.
