October is Dyslexia Awareness Month

On a tan background, an orange-red banner. Text reads October is Dyslexia Awareness Month, in a dyslexia friendly font.

Dyslexia, also sometimes referred to as "Specific Learning Disability" in reading, is the most common cause of reading difficulties. Research shows that it affects as many as one in five people.

Did you know that we have books with dyslexia-friendly fonts, and that you can select the same font in many of our cloudLibrary books? Dyslexia-friendly readers are books formatted to be super-readable, using a special font and spacing on thicker, tinted pages. We also have C-Pen Readers, portable, pocket-sized devices that read out text with a humanlike voice.
