Dyslexic Advantage was founded in 2012 by Drs. Brock and Fernette Eide. The Eides had authored the book The Dyslexic Advantage, but the movement and community was born in response to an insistent 8 year old boy told us that he wanted to know more what he could ‘do’ because of his dyslexia, not more of what he couldn’t.
In the United States, they are the largest online network for dyslexic individuals, parents, teachers, and other professionals, and their mission is to foster positive identity, community, and strength for every dyslexic child and adults. The mission of Dyslexic Advantage is to promote the positive identity, community, and achievement of dyslexic people by focusing on their strengths.
