In recognition of Dyslexia Awareness Month, Everyone Reading Illinois, and the Dyslexia Action Group of Naperville held a workshop to help others better understand the learning disorder.
Parents, families and teachers were able to participate in a dyslexia simulation exercise- writing, listening and reading in a similar way to those who suffer from the disorder.
“Kids all over Naperville who are struggling to read could be undiagnosed people with dyslexia and even in fantastic schools with great teachers, people are unaware,” said Karen Kreiling, President of the Dyslexia Action Group of Naperville.
It’s estimated that 20 percent of the population has dyslexia.
