    I hope this finds you well. Did you know that nearly 20% of the population is dyslexic or has a related learning disability that effects reading? Have you seen the studies that show nearly 50% of the prison population is functionally illiterate due to dyslexia? Only 25 teaching colleges adequately prepare their teachers to address dyslexia. Would you like to help me change that and make sure all dyslexic kids thrive in their public schools?
