Do you think you may be dyslexic?

Dyslexic Advantage was co-founded by

Drs. Brock and Fernette Eide

50 million Americans, including 10 million school-aged children, are dyslexic and they comprise 80% of students in special education classrooms. In a recent nationwide survey conducted by Dyslexic Advantage, over half of parents were told by a principal or teacher that dyslexia is not recognized by their school system. The Secretary of Education recently confirmed that there is no dyslexia-specific curriculum or plan for these students which has serious consequences for these children because they think and learn differently than other non-dyslexic students and require methods of instruction that are suited to their way of learning and thinking. Today, Dyslexic Advantage (DA) is breaking the cycle of negative in school systems and workplaces by revolutionizing how dyslexic people are understood, educated, and employed. We’re replacing the old and outmoded deficit-centered paradigm with a new and more productive strengths-centered paradigm that puts abilities rather than weaknesses at the heart of what it means to be dyslexic.

What are the Dyslexic Advantages?

Scientific research shows that dyslexic children and adults process information differently from non-dyslexics and some of these changes may account for strengths in creative problem solving, entrepreneurial thinking, and certain types of learning and memory. An understanding of the advantage side of dyslexia is important for children to discover how they learn and remember best as well as for adults to find careers and work environments that allow them to work to their highest abilities.

Testimonials about Dyslexic Advantage

“Thankfully, the Dyslexic Advantage helped us tremendously with explaining everything to the kids. The change in perception of a dyslexia diagnosis helped our children with understanding why they were struggling and while their difficulties wouldn’t just simply vanish, they had a great many gifts BECAUSE they are dyslexic. It was a much more positive starting point than the school’s perspective that my kids were lazy or disabled and couldn’t succeed. I was so grateful for the book.”

“Beautiful work. There’s so much helpful content here.I ‘ll be recommending it to the parent support group and everyone else I meet who needs your resources. Congratulations! My best.”

“Love the magazine. My daughter is newly diagnosed and we’re still wading through this whole new world.

“Hi, I love your newsletter and your book. I run a dyslexia interest group at our high school in my own time. Please keep doing what you are doing, it is very inspirational and I am constantly sharing about your book.”

“This is absolutely amazing! I can not wait to share the information with my daughter that I have learned while reading this magazine!!! Thank you !! “m constantly sharing about your book.”

“I am so excited and happy that you are doing this! Dyslexia is so little understood and very much ignored in educational and other settings. Even after attempting to educate various individuals on the topic I find that they will still ask students to attempt inappropriate activities. Sadly, many don’t get it. Thank you for making this.”
