Every person with dyslexia has a different story about being diagnosed—if they are lucky enough to be diagnosed at all. Some are diagnosed at a young age thanks to parents or teachers who know the signs and advocate for early testing. Other children mask symptoms of dyslexia for years by compensating with extraordinary memory and enormous effort. And, sadly, some never receive the life-changing diagnosis and support they need to succeed. This section gives you, as parents and educators, the basic information and road map to identifying dyslexia in children.
