Dyslexic Achiever

"I never read in school. I got really bad grades--D's and F's and C's in some classes, and A's and B's in other classes. In the second week of the 11th grade, I just quit. Almost everything I learned, I had to learn by listening. My report cards always said that I was not living up to my potential."

(Singer )

Who has it?

Between 10-12% of the Indian population is dyslexic, which translates to roughly about 3.9 million children and adults. No correlation has been found between the incidence of dyslexia and nationality, income, gender, ethnicity, race, or IQ. It is usually hereditary in nature.
