Dyslexia Awareness Month: Understanding Dyslexia

In addition to October being AAC awareness, it is also dedicated to Dyslexia awareness. As so perfectly stated on the TED-Ed website:

"Dyslexia affects up to 1 in 5 people, but the experience of dyslexia isn't always the same. This difficulty in processing language exists along a spectrum -- one that doesn't necessarily fit with labels like "normal" and "defective." -Kelli Sandman-Hurley

I felt strongly in highlighting the TED-Ed video below, created by Kelli Sandman-Hurley, because simply enough, it put a fresh perspective on how we should be viewing dyslexia, specifically dyslexic brain function and the neurodiversity of the human brain. I hope you find it to be as enlightening and educational as I did.
