many famous people with dyslexia Abstract Dyslexia is a brain-based reading disorder, which affects from 5-15% of the world's population. People who have dyslexia find it much harder to read than people without, which can cause emotional stress for children who have this learning disability. Though environmental factors may affect the degree of dyslexia, in general, dyslexia is genetically inherited as a recessive gene. No cure has been developed for dyslexia, though there are various treatments, such as educational programs and Irlen lenses, with varying degrees of success. Today, we are asking for a grant to develop a better and more effective treatment for dyslexia. The Problem DRD (developmental reading disorder)
