Almost 15 percent of Britons have dyslexia, yet despite such big numbers many consider being dyslexic a burden.
But can we look at dyslexia differently?
Campaigner and author of 'The Dyslexic Code', Karl de Leeuw hopes to launch the world’s first International Celebration of Dyslexia (ICD) event next year.
He spoke with RNIB Connect Radio’s Simon Pauley about the event and what being dyslexic means to him.
