What is Dyslexia?

Dyslexia causes difficulty in the skills needed for learning to read, spell and write, but it is much more than that. Studies have found that as many as one in five children in the United States demonstrate symptoms of dyslexia. While dyslexia may make reading more difficult, MSD of Martinsville staff are equipped with the knowledge and resources to help all students succeed.
