October is Dyslexia Awareness Month, a time to acknowledge the genetic condition that stems from differences in the brain and its ability to process language (neurodivergence).
|Silver is the ribbon color for Dyslexia Awareness.|
It is a condition that often runs in families and accounts for about 1 in 10 people. Globally, there are some 780 million people who are dyslexic; and in the US, more than 40 million adults have it, though only about 2 million have been diagnosed.
For the Cocoa Kids' Second Edition, the book series was reimagined with neurodivergent readers in mind. That's why I'm thrilled to share our first review of the newly designed book that comes from my ADCOLOR Leaders colleague, Ms. Lois Castillo. She is a mother of two sons, who like herself are dyslexic.
