As the most common learning disability in the U.S., dyslexia affects somewhere between 5 and 17 percent of the population. In a five-part special series, National Public Radio (NPR) explores dyslexia. Articles include a first-person account by an NPR reporter who has dyslexia, the science behind how the brain learns to read, how dyslexia is dealt with in the public education system, what parents can do to help a child with dyslexia, and personal stories shared by those who live with dyslexia.
