I've had to deal with dyslexia since I was in middle school, and it's something so many people deal with in their life. It is very common with more than 3 million US cases per year. I was lucky enough to have a teacher help me identify it when I was young, and struggling in class.

What is dyslexia?

a general term for disorders that involve difficulty in learning to read or interpret words, letters, and other symbols, but that do not affect general intelligence.

It's something that has never really gone away for me. I had help with tutors in school, but I still deal with it today. This is a bit funny seeing as though I write articles as a part of my job. From time to time I do make mistakes on an article that may be noticeable to some, but for me, it's easy to miss.

If you or your child suffers from dyslexia there are some great programs, tutors, and online resources that can help with grammar and spelling. Other ones however are not so great

I wish I had more of these great online resources as a kid, but am glad I have them now.

Google docs usually work great, but if you copy and paste your writings into it, it will sometimes not update, and miss some mistakes it can usually fix.

Grammarly has worked great for me so far. It's been the most helpful so far, but I still have to double-check the spelling.

Some websites are very sketchy and don't actually help. Rather they steal your information. (That's a story for another time.) I highly recommend the two listed above.

I will always keep an eye out for new ways to help myself and others who suffer from dyslexia, it may not seem like a big thing, but it honestly has caused me to make some major mistakes, and has left me feeling genuinely stupid. I know I'm not, but this silent disability does a great job of making many who deal with it feel inadequate.

Just know you're not alone if you deal with it, and there are ways to beat it. You are not lesser if you deal with dyslexia.
