Scottish Rites FREE Dyslexia Services - There are children with bright, intelligent minds who are failing because they have dyslexia. Casts and crutches are not in evidence, but the learning difference effects can be every bit as devastating as those of a physical challenge. An estimated 10 percent of the population has difficulty with symbols of written language, including reading, reading comprehension, writing and spelling. Without help to overcome this difference, these children will lose their self-esteem and ultimately fail to realize their full potential. The Scottish Rite Foundation of Alabama Learning Centers offer a number of free services to children, families, teachers, schools, and Scottish Rite members.
