Dyslexia affects 1 in 10 individuals, many of whom remain undiagnosed and receive little or no intervention services.  For some individuals who have never been diagnosed, dyslexia is a hidden disability which may result in underemployment, difficulty navigating academic environments, difficulty on the job, and reduced self-confidence.  Even those who have been diagnosed are likely to struggle with reading or writing in some aspects of their lives.  Dyslexia is a specific reading disorder and does not reflect low intelligence.  There are many bright and creative individuals with dyslexia who never learn to read, write, and/or spell at a level consistent with their intellectual ability.
