There's a good program coming on PBS about this.  It's a pour fart series.

A friend I acquired when they married an existing friend is dyslexic.  A very smart and nerdy type and loves audio books for obvious reasons.  Reading is a lot of work and hard to enjoy.

I have to wonder if, like my friend, the subject of this article didn't get the help deserved earlier because they were just dismissed as dumb because not white.  TFA mentions barriers, doesn't really spell it out.

I'm dyslexic. I don't know if it gets better with age or if I've learned to adapt. I still read at about the speed I did at 9 or 10.
