October is Dyslexia Awareness Month

September 30, 2021 -- October is International Dyslexia Awareness Month and was established by the International Dyslexia Association  (IDA) to raise awareness and educate others about dyslexia.

Dyslexia is the most common learning challenge with 15-20% of the population showing symptoms of dyslexia. It is crucial to be able to recognize the signs and symptoms of dyslexia so that a child can be evaluated early and obtain the appropriate instruction and accommodations he or she needs to succeed in school and beyond.

Vestavia Hills City Schools is committed to providing the screening, resources, and support needed to support our students who exhibit characteristics of dyslexia. Please visit  VHCS Dyslexia Resource for more information on how the Vestavia Hills City Schools support students with dyslexia.
