Have you ever met a child who was clearly very bright but struggled with reading, writing, and spelling? Maybe it was your own child or maybe it was a child in Sunday school or your homeschool co-op. It is very likely that that child was dyslexic.

Dyslexia is often referred to as a hidden disability because unlike physical disabilities, there are no outward signs that the condition is present.

When a bright child is a poor reader or speller, they are often judged as lacking intelligence. People with dyslexia actually almost always have average to above-average intelligence, but this misunderstanding about what dyslexia is regularly causes people with dyslexia a lot of shame and embarrassment. This myth is just one of many hurtful misunderstandings about dyslexia.

Take this short dyslexia awareness quiz to see how many myths about dyslexia you believe:

  1. Dyslexic children will outgrow dyslexia with time.
  2. Kids with dyslexia aren’t read to by their parents and watch too much TV instead.
  3. Dyslexia is a visual problem which is why people with dyslexia often see letters backwards.
  4. Kids with dyslexia are lazy and just need to work harder.
  5. Kids with dyslexia should go to school where the educational experts can teach them.

All of the facts above are false!
