It seems as if autism and asberger's syndrome are getting most of the attention these days. But dyslexia continues to be present in our schools and children, albeit in small numbers. This site, Symptoms of Dyslexia, offers a great starting point for learning about dyslexia. It has a nice layout and organization so you can find information quickly. Starting with identifying warning signs, the site goes on to describe issues that show up in school including rote memory, directional issues, sequencing, handwriting and math difficulties.

There is a link to share celebrities that have adapted to their dyslexia, including Whoopi Goldberg, Tom Cruise, Leonardo daVinci, Edgar Allen Poe, Jules Verne, John Lennon and Patrick Dempsey. Some of the people have written articles for this site, others have a small biography included.
