October is Dyslexia Awareness Month

It’s Dyslexia Awareness Month. Will you help us spread the word? Wondering what else you can do to support children and adults with dyslexia? Here are a few suggestions:

Follow and Share

Join us as we share stories from people living with dyslexia, insights into dyslexia around the world, events held by branches of the International Dyslexia Association (IDA) across the United States and by our Global Partners around the world, new fact sheets, and more…

Check in with Us Daily

We’ll be updating our website here, and also posting on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Track #DyslexiaAroundTheWorld and #UntilEveryoneCanRead to make sure you don’t miss a post!

Take the ZYX Challenge!

The ZYX Challenge is an idea that was brought to us last spring by Jasleen Toor and friends, all currently ninth graders living in New Jersey. They have created ZYX Challenge social media accounts for Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook with the goal of raising funds and awareness for IDA.

We ask each of you to take the Challenge and post it on social media.Encourage your kids, friends, and family to do the same.  It’s a fun and easy way to raise awareness and show your support.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Make a video of your attempt to say the alphabet backwards in under 45 seconds. Open the video with a brief introduction such as “I’m taking the challenge to support the millions of kids in schools who struggle daily with dyslexia.”
  2. If you make a mistake or are unable to complete the challenge, make a donation to IDA on this page: http://idysa.convio.net/goto/zyxchallenge
  3. Challenge another person to do the same and post it on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter using the hashtags #ZYXChallenge and #UntilEveryoneCanRead



Thank you for participating in Dyslexia Awareness Month. Together we can create a future for all individuals who struggle with dyslexia and other related reading differences so that they may have richer, more robust lives and access to the tools and resources they need.

I guess they get a donation then.  I'd be lucky to say the alphabet backwards in 45 minutes. 

     I just discovered I have some form of dyslexia a few years back.  It explains much in highschool typing.
